There aren't very many DCs in the league losing sleep over the prospect of facing those guys. I was concerned with our RB depth before Rashard knee blew out, even moreso now. Hopefully B. Batch is the wild-card in this. If we have to rely too much on Clay and Dwyer, I'm not gonna be too happy. Hopefully, they bring in some guys to compete.

The RB position is not a pressing need at this time.
If Redman can't be a lead back for a full year.....and drops the ball........
If Batch isn't what we hope him to be.....and the injury affects him more.......
If Dwyer can only show flashes......really, that's all he's done......
If Clay.......I don't have any idea what to expect from him, he just hasn't played enough.
Definitely a lot of potential, definitely a lot of questions.
It could be a pressing need after the 2013 season though.
But right now we do have much more pressing needs: OL, ILB, DL.
They have to be addressed first.

I agree, RB is definitely something that shouldn't be worried about right now. This season will tell us a lot about what we have, and if it turns out Redman and the rest of those guys can't adequately handle the load then we'll address it with an early pick in 2013.
