Default Running back 2013

Just wondering peoples thoughts on the running back situation in 2013.

Will Mendenhall still be a Steeler in 2013? Will Dwyer be the workhorse starter or will he split carries with Redman? Do we draft a running back in the later rounds?

Draft a starting RB in round 2 or so and have Dwyer/Redman back him up. 4th string can be Baron Batch.

If we dont FA one or draft one, Redman starts, because he will have a better camp that Dwyer who will be out of shape.

Mendy gone

Dywer the starter splitting carriers with Andre Ellington / Kenjon Barner / Mike Gillislee
Redman the backup

I think that would be sufficient ...

We really need to draft someone or sign someone through FA, the crew we had this year will never cut it. Personally I think its obvious we need a running back and they have to do SOMETHING, my guess is they will draft someone since we never seem to use FA unless its to sign someone that has already been a steeler in the past (plax for example), I dont like how we never use free agency to pick up a big name, it's worked well for other teams.

I say they make a push for Setven Jackson from the Rams. He is a FA. If they can get him for reasonable price, then get him. He is an immeidate fix.
