Default Thoughts on 2013 rb prospects

Based on our current situation at rb I believe there is a need to draft one this week. Which prospects would you like to see get drafted
I would look at four

Montee ball- a noise for the endzone good vision decent speed
Leevon bell- big back decent speed hits holes pretty good was a playmaker behide a awful line at Michigan state
John Franklin - overall good back
M lattiemore- I know he coming off 2 knee injuries but he is very talented and will fall in the draft

We don't need a RB! We need the FB that we have on the roster to actually be used!!!

Yeah personally I say... give Dwyer a chance, with Decastro in the lineup ... but that's not saying I couldn't see Haley getting a 3rd round RB ... on a Kenjon Barner type back ...

you got to remember Haley doesn't like the big power backs like that... He would rather have McClusters and Charles ... and I see Kenjon Barner being able to play that style of play , excellent speed and able to catch the ball

Dwyer is a truly mediocre back. He needs to be replaced.

The best RB in this draft was Lattimore until his injury. I know he's declaring for this draft, but there's no way he'll be ready for next season. He just can't be - that injury was gruesome and horrifying. That being said, a team will still use a third / fourth round pick on him despite his injury. Whether or not we should use one is up for debate.

I think we should grab either Bernard or Davis - Davis in the later rounds. I know this defensive class is absolutely stacked and taking an offensive player seems like a wasted pick, but that's our current situation. Dwyer has been a massive disappointment in his playing like and this has unfortunately lead us to taking a running back in a draft that is stacked with defensive players. Grabbing someone like Giovani from North Carolina would give us a back that runs like a Matt Forte - quick with explosive play ability and fast getting around the edges.
