Default Re: Steelers Grab RB Baron Batch in 7th Round

I think he was drafted because of his skillset more than because we need another RB. Mendenhall is our fastest running back by far, and while he does have deceptive speed for a back with is build and playing style, the rest of our RB corps does not. Redman and Dwyer are both big, bruising backs who are rather slow. Batch may not be Chris Johnson but compared to Redman and Dwyer, he brings an element of speed and quickness which our corps lacks past Mendenhall. We needed a small, quick scatback like him.

Moore is gone, Batch is taking his place. I for one am totally cool with that, never was a big Moore fan.
