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.
I really like Eddie Lacy. He is stocky and hard to bring down, and is a 1 cut inside runner with decent speed. He is more decisive than Mendenhall with similar talent.
