Well let's lay it out. 4.1 ypc is very mediocre. Out backfield on paper is very mediocre and that's really the beginning and the end of it at the end of the day.The knowledge of the casual fan is the worst barometer for determining which players are actually good. How many casual fans know who Van Ginkle is?
I remember having an argument with a "casual fan" that thought I was crazy for thinking we shouldn't sign Devanta Freeman.
I do think we should draft a RB on day 2. But I also don't think our backfield situation is as dire as some seem to. We have two quality backups. But it's definitely true that neither is going to be an average starter or a complete back.
Still, Gaskin and Ahmed are better than plenty of RB's that casual fans would think are better due to name recognition.
