True but I think if you dont risk you dont get anything,plus I'm sure we could have him for almost nothing.

I know a lot of people dont like Bush's injury but he has everything to prove and that could be dangerous specially when you know that he has the skills and strength to overcome that injury

should be interesting

We can probably snag Jacob Hester in the third round. He has great heart and is a very effective hammer in short yardage situations. Also has a shorter learning curve because the SEC likes to use pro-style defenses.

He was a questionable 1st round talent before he broke his leg. We' would probably have to give up a higher pick than 4th!

Honestly, I was actually pretty impressed with Carey Davis when he carried the ball.

jonothan stewart isnt falling but the fact is so many other RBs are flying off the board that he might be there when we pick..

by the time the combine is over J stew will be gone before 20 no doubt.

If we go Power back, Id say Forte or Hester, which would be avail later...

I would love to have johnathan stewart but as stated earlier he will probably be gone and we need to address other issues.

That's the only thing I can see. If you are going to make a move for an RB in the off season, why go for a guy thats completely unproven?

I say trade for Steven Jackson in St Louis. They gave us a legend in waiting once, maybe they'll be stupid enough to do it again. (I know this is not possible, but I love his size and running style and am just day dreaming)
I would be happy if the Rams would be stupid enough to trade him to the Steelers for a 1st Round Draft pick and we could throw Willie into the package as well. I love Willie, but Steven Jackson is a beast that definitely would fit the Steelers tradition.

There will plenty of good backs available later, I agree, I love LSU's Hester and he would be a great compliment to Willie, As well, Russell has good upside and he's already ours.
however lets not forget, WE NEED OFFENSIVE LINEMAN!!!!!!!
It Otah is there at our [pick we need to take him!!
