Gotta go after a feature running back

Recommended Posts

I guess preferably in the draft but get Shady as good of RB that you can find. 

 

Hehas 2 elite years left, he doesn't take hits like the average RB. He's too shifty to get a good shot on, or he'll smartly go out of bounds versus attempting to get another yard , always after getting the 1st down of course.

 

Whatever route we go with QB on offense, we must draft or take a RB in FA , but drafting is way to go , salary cap wise, spend one of our first 3 picks on RB, will make us much more dynamic and Shady will be able to share some of the load,why also most likely helping his production on the field.

 

Edit-

Wanted to paste this here. 

 RB taken in top 100 

 

1 Fournette

8 McCaffrey

41 Cook

48 Mixon

67 Kamara

86 Hunt

89 Foreman

 

The NFL leading rusher in Hunt, likely rookie of year in Kamara, Fournette established himself as a beast, McCaffrey was a huge part of the Car Offense. Almost all 7 had significant contributions to their teams. Mixon injured alot, even he looks like he'll be a very good RB.

 

23 RB taken out of the top 100

Only two come to mind that had a significant contribution, Cohen and Jamal Williams

This is not a high priority with many other needs outweighing RB. 

I disagree. You can have something special at the position with Shady and a great complement. Why not attempt to make part of your O that much more dangerous.

A great running game wins Super Bowls

QB, DT, LB, WR, and OL all outweigh RB in order of priority needs coming into 2018.

Qb for sure. But if we are grinding out games, rb is right up there too

I understand what you mean and I agree we need to upgrade some positions but the impact of a great running game can be tremendous

Not IMO. Talk to me about RB when McCoy is gone.  

Get his replacement when he's still in his prime, let them ball out together, watch it tremendously help the offense

It blows my mind that Bills fans exist that want to draft a RB.

 

Was our 17 year drought not enough evidence of how little a star running back helps your team?

 

Get a guy off the street that weighs half as much as Tolbert and we’re fine.

A star RB is probably the top reason we made the playoffs, he was basically our only offense and did it at an extremely high level.

So yea, your point isn't that effective,sir

I do want OBD to consider taking a HB in rounds 4 and later. I think it is a deep HB class and someone to take pressure off Shady will be available. 

 

I'm biased as an Irish fan, but Josh Adam is a good example of a guy who should probably go higher than he will, and might be had in round 4.

If we expect to be grinding out games, I'd want both lines upgraded.  Those type games are won and lost in the trenches, and I feel we've lost too many battles on the lines.  So to me, QB/OL/DL are primary concerns, then LB followed by WR then RB.

RB is a fairly high priority. It's is a big part of our offense (will probably continue to be) and the only viable NFL talent we have right now is going on 30 years old.

 

We need someone to split time with McCoy and someone who can carry the load if he goes down.

With the extra day 2 picks, I wouldn’t even mind a third rounder if you are looking at a guy you think can be a workhorse back

 

if it’s 100 touches this year at minimum, and perhaps many more if shady tweaks anything. It’s a guy that could carry the load in a year for a transition... and mid round lineman are a far bigger crapshoot
