I really wouldn't call a RB pick a waste unless it's in the first round. Just because Arian Foster and Alfred Morris have found success doesn't mean anything, the vast majority of reliable, workhorse backs are taken in the first few rounds. I'd argue the lack of a true RB this year was our biggest hole and possibly the biggest reason for our collapse. No RB this year is worth a first round pick but round 2 or 3 would not be a waste and I'd actually be more upset if we don't take one there.
