That's usually the way it rolls. Happens with every position, not necessarily early on but once one prime position is selected, panic sets in and they start flying off the boards.I have a feeling once the first RB is selected the run begins. Taylor, swift, dobbins...I can see all going within 5-7 picks of each other
Draft is loaded with good RB's.
Christ I'm so tired of talking about OL. every friggin year. But once again for the 9 millionth time first priority OL ! Again First Priority
And Conklin is the first step I'd be making and than step 2, one or the other of Thuney or Scherff. I mean its a no brainer..... Christ we've sacrificed enough and deserve this (IMO)
5 pk lft handed QB
18 pk def.
26 pk LT Jones
rd 2 RB & Center
and fingers crossed I'd love me a AJ Dillon. But man forget about the running back or anything else besides a QB till you FIX OUR GD OL>>>>>>>>>ONCE AND FOR ALL !!!!!!!
These days a fa runningback won't cost you that much. Henry will get paid, but the rest will run you less than a second rate guard.I can't believe the number of guys suggesting we spend big bucks in the FA market, or use one of our top five draft picks, on RB.
Darn good RB's will be there later on and we have done well drafting late round RB's. Vaughn, Moss, Perine, Kelly, Ackers, Hill, Dillion, Harris, Hubbard........whoever we can get 4th round and later...add a pair.
Draft LOT and a ROT high, get a pair of proven guards in the FA market, maybe add a center in the draft.....and any of the above RB's will be more than "good enough".
We have bigger fish to fry, ones that are costly in FA marketplace like CD, DE, LB, WR. No way I'm drafting a RB in the first 3 rounds with all the needs we have. I'd sooner buy a proven one at a reasonable cost.
