Default Who will be our HB next year?

Any thoughts? I prefer Eddie Lacy but we will see.

Im very big on Lacy if we do draft a RB. Is he worth a second round pick though? I believe he is because of our need to get a running game going and take the pressure off Ben. Im curious to see if they pick anyone up in free agency.

Lacy, Gillislee, Davis, Lattimore, Taylor, Bernard or Randle.

Take your pick.

Or how bout we draft Lattimore and put him on IR all season and intentionally lose all our games next year so we can get his teammate Clowney :)

Fuck, I'd put Brown at QB and Ike Taylor at WR to tank the season for Clowney.

In all seriousness, he's one of the very few players I'd give up a substantial amount of players and/or picks for. He's the kind of guy to build a defense around and, in 2014, we might need to do so. From what I saw, teams like Jacksonville, Oakland or Tampa will have the top pick next year and I feel like we'd be able to pull off a trade with one of those teams and nab that top pick.

Stranger things have happened.

Bradshaw is too injury prone. He's solid, but he should go elsewhere.

Are maybe we just trade back in the draft with a team like the Jags are some team that will mostly be a top 5 pick next year and pick up there 2014 1st round pick and draft Clowney.

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.

In his five years, Ahmad has played in:

'07 - 12/16
'08 - 15/16
'09 - 15/16
'10 - 16/16
'11 - 12/16

That's not awful. Especially if we draft another RB (ideally, I'd like the Steelers to draft Eddie Lacy). And Dwyer and Redman showed they can be effective in spurts, they're just not ideal for a long stretch. I think Bradshaw would be a pretty high-quality signing, especially if they got him fairly cheaply.
