"The guys that are coming out now, there's a bunch of those 5-9, 185-pound or 195-pound, quick-as-a-cat water bugs that are running backs-slash-receivers that might give you a little bit of a punch on the field, maybe make a big play."

"I think guys can [change positions]," Gailey said. "I don't think that's an issue. Quarterbacks normally are good athletes and smart. Them moving to another position isn't an issue normally if they have the makeup to do that physically and if they want to. There's a bunch of guys that only want to play quarterback."

BillBoard: Gailey eyes a running back in the draft
"We've got to upgrade there in some way, shape or form, and there are some good running backs in the draft this year, different from what we've got,'' Gailey said. "So a change of pace is may something we could do there with a different type of player. The guys who are coming out now, there's a bunch of those 5-9, 180 to 185-pound, quick-as-a-cat water bugs that are running backs/receivers that might give you a little bit of a punch on the field and maybe make a big play.''
