I'd take a Doug Martin and/or Ray Rice... but I agree with the essence of your post.

Even Rice wasn't taken until late in the second round.

Oh, I know. I wanted him in R1. He should have gone in R1. Many, many teams made a mistake on him.

Agh I know. Hurts even more because Mendenhall was highly rated in that draft but scouts aren't psychics. Anyhow, as far as who we pick in Rd1. It will all depends who's there. We're always going to go BPA so there's no way we select a RB in Rd1. I think we go defense-thinking linebacker.

The good news is that there will be a TON of options available at 17: OLB, S, even ILB. This is a deep, deep draft.

You're exactlly right we have to look at the board when we're on the clock and should take whats there for us.

I can't see the,harm in drafting Lacy 1st round,the Steelers need a every down back and Lacy looks like the best RB in this draft and they can draft a LB in the 2nd. Like I've said before the offense needs a lot more improving than the #1 defense.

Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida

Projected 40 Time: 4.42.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.
1/12/13: Gillislee had a superb senior season for the Gators. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry while amassing 1,1152 yards and 10 touchdowns. Gillislee played hurt, yet helped push Florida to a tough road win against Teas A&M. He had impressive games against Tennessee, Bowling Green and LSU, too. He closed out the regular season by destroying Florida State to the tune of 140 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.

The senior has speed and deceptive power. Gillislee is very impressive as a blocker in blitz protection. He has really helped his draft stock this year.


Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon

Height: 5-11. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round (2013): 4-5.
1/12/13: Barner ripped off big yardage for Oregon all year as its feature back. He had 1,767 yards and 21 touchdowns and averaged 6.4 yards per carry. Barner also snagged 20 receptions for 256 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for 321 yards and five touchdowns against USC, but had some struggles against California and Stanford. The speed back is a threat to score on any carry, but he doesn't compile yards after contact.

They're my two favorite , I think running backs slip in this draft due to it being deep defense and one of these two will be their in the 4th

The BPA ast 17 is not a RB.
