Default Re: Thoughts on 2013 rb prospects

Dwyer is a truly mediocre back. He needs to be replaced.

The best RB in this draft was Lattimore until his injury. I know he's declaring for this draft, but there's no way he'll be ready for next season. He just can't be - that injury was gruesome and horrifying. That being said, a team will still use a third / fourth round pick on him despite his injury. Whether or not we should use one is up for debate.

I think we should grab either Bernard or Davis - Davis in the later rounds. I know this defensive class is absolutely stacked and taking an offensive player seems like a wasted pick, but that's our current situation. Dwyer has been a massive disappointment in his playing like and this has unfortunately lead us to taking a running back in a draft that is stacked with defensive players. Grabbing someone like Giovani from North Carolina would give us a back that runs like a Matt Forte - quick with explosive play ability and fast getting around the edges.
