View Full Version : Draft a RB ?

03-10-2005, 01:12 PM
Since Jerome will almost for sure retire after the 2005 season, assuming he comes back this year. That will leave us w/ Duce and Verron. Neither of which has been 100% the majority of their careers... I would think we'd have to draft a RB at some point in this draft, for insurance, if we can. Jerome isnt telling BC and company till June 1 what his intentions are, so while RB's can be had anytime,I'd be tempted to grab a good prospect later on day 2 of the draft this year, just to be safe.

What about Willie Parker he may be a stud one day

Parker isnt an every down back IMO.. he's a great situational player, but lacks the power to be a guy who can between the tackles, which is what we need since we do alot of trap blocking and guys like verron, duce and the bus run great, straight up the middle, north and south.

Parker is great as a role player, but at this point, not much more than that, IMO. :cool:

Your probably right, but I sure would like to see more of him in those situations

ahh we say him in 1 game u dotn know yet if hell be a break out player.

past experience w/ players that are mainly built for speed, suggests he wouldnt make it as an every down back.. however thats not to say that he couldnt do it, anything can happen, and I'd ecstatic if he turns out to be even more than he is now.

Gotta find someone who can handle the rock 25-30 times a game, run between the tackles. I want a big guy like Duckett but a little lighter and faster. We find them, always do...

03-11-2005, 06:12 AM

03-15-2005, 12:43 PM

03-15-2005, 02:58 PM

he got out of prison this year and hired a traner and wants to enter back in the league it was on NFL network, earlier in the 05 season.

03-15-2005, 10:54 PM
Man if he is coming back, he's gonna be under so much scrutiny and radom testing it'll be crazy.

03-15-2005, 10:56 PM
ya and his age is way past his prime think he said he was 34 at the tiem of work outs, but after seeing curtis martin and betties this year thinks he can return.

03-15-2005, 10:58 PM
curtis martin and bettis are HOF players. they've done this year in and year out, they've kept the faith and did what they had to do.

bam was immature and stupid and blew his shot. if he wants to make a comeback, good luck to him, he'll need it.
