Default Re: Who will be our HB next year?

If we lose Mendenhall, that leaves us without a feature back. We have none to speak of (Redman & Dwyer are change of pace, short yardage situational backs ONLY and Batch is a healthy scratch, 3rd down back most of the time) and spending value early in the draft might not be the wisest to reach for a RB until maybe the mid-rounds.

I think this is the year we could make an immediate splash and plug a need PRONTO. Guys like Ahmad Bradshaw, Beanie Wells or Steven Jackson can step in right away and be givin carries for 1-2 years before we groom whichever running back we draft in whichever round for the future.
