Would anyone here be upset To find out Lamar Gordon Beat out the rookie running back we draft in Training camp. Now i know this is unlikely, but really think about it. Saban is gonna have an open competition almost at every position. If Lamar Gordon was our day 1 starter i think i could live with it.

(this goes for whoever you think we're gonna draft.)

I voted no because we would be in a win win situation similar to SD. But, if he beats him in a battle of mediocrity like last year, I would be upset.

But unlike a QB, we wouldn't be able to recoup a 1st rd pick for a RB.

I would only be mad if the RB sucked otherwise that means Gordon is good enough, Which satisfies me.

I made this point, for those who truly believe that we're drafting benson or brown. And i personally think that anyone who votes Yes in this poll, believes that Benson and Brown would be considered a Bust if they didn't beat out gordon for the starting job.

If he beat him out then either the rb sucks or gordon must be the better guy...believe me the better guy will start most likely the draftee

Ricky can't come back before the draft. he can't come back til july. So yes, we still draft high for a RB. Theres no gaurantee in Ricky.

I will be upset if our first pick is mediocre, no matter who we pick. Not at anyone in particular because the draft is a crapshoot. I will just be upset because I am a Dolphins fan and a high draft pick turns out to be a bust. As for Gordon turning out subpar, well, that wouldn't be as bad IMO because we only lost a 3rd (correct?) for him, versus the #2 overall.

The rookie being mediocre. i like what Saban has done so far, the only question for me that is left about Saban, is his evaluation skills. If he drafts say a Kay Jay Harris, who sucks, in the second, then I will be upset, because Lamar wins. But say he drafts Morency in the second, Gordon is nothing but a third down back.

All that is left, is to see what kind of evaluation skills Saban has come draft day.

I trust saban knows who to get. but i personally think he'll be surprised by gordon.
