Default ANY SUGGESTIONS ???

We have Willie and Najeh , What kind of additions to the backfield should we make I would really like to see us get Micheal Bush and give him a shot for a spot any suggestions ? Willie is our guy but what happens if he has to miss considerable time?

the steelers have usually gone with 4 backs and a fb under cowher. i would think tomlin would do the same.

haynes and duce were let go, so i would think we get atleast one in the draft and possibly keep kuhn on the roster until haynes is able to return.

assuming no trades to move up or down, i'll say this back we get will come in the 3rd or 4th round.

If not later. Don't we have more pressing needs at LB, O-line (2?), DE and maybe cornerback? So we need more than FWP, Dump Davenport & probably Verron back healthy later?

Davenport just got resigned, i doubt he'll be dumped,let him prove himself as a backup to Willie. But it will be nice to have Haynes back.

Are there news that the Steelers might resign Haynes? I hope so because he means more to our team than Najeh does in my opinion. I hope that we can resign him and maybe draft a RB in the middle of the upcoming draft..
God Bless

If we could pick up Bush in the 3rd,.....i think it would probably be one of the biggest 'steals' of the draft. However,....he may not last past the 2nd rnd. (Of course this depends on how he performs at his Pro Day workout)

There are some questions about Michael Bush's upright running style making him prone to injuries---same things they say about Najeah.

Are there any other "pounder" type big-backs in the draft? Thats what we need.
