I'm all for getting Willie a compliment. I was just making the point that if our OLine doesn't step up we could have 3 or 4 quality backs and it wouldn't matter.

You can't run before you can walk . . .

We need O'line help, with a line that dominates Najeh could break 750 or so just complimenting Willie!

We can afford to take a chance on a RB with a late pick, but it is by no means a priority!

Yeah. The contention that 1000 yards per season makes Willie our goto RB rings on deaf ears when you look at key seasonal matchups and games in which Willie barely gets 20 in a game. One point.

But then how bad was our O-line (or how good were they) in thoses games?

That's my biggest peeve with Parker. He either steals the show or hides on the sidelines. He just isn't consistent enough to pound defenses like B-more, San Diego, J-ville ... etc. I think a good look would be like a tony hunt. I am not completely against Najeh, or signing someone like TJ Duckett (which seems to be what a lot of people a "quickfix" to our power running game), however, what if we were sitting tight at spot 15 and the likes of marshawn lynch was just starring at us begging to be picked.

... this draft is extremely deep with players in skill positions, its actually proabably one of the deeper drafts in awhile. I don't see us taking a RB in the draft until late day one or very early day 2.

Remember, Najeh didn't go through mini camp, training camp or preseason with the Steelers. With that under his belt plus last year could make a big difference. He look like someone who could compliment WP. We will see what happens in days to come.
