Seriously? Wow. He is not a top 10 RB my any stretch of the imagination, but to say that about him... I think he proved he has room to improve but I thought he did well last year.
Sean Taylor #21 a Redskin forever...

Draft winners, not stars.

Hail to the Redskins
Hail victory

All up to the philosophy of the team. Tons of teams have blockers in as their 3rd down back, tons of teams have speedsters. I personally agree with matty and like a blocking back with the addition of they have to be able to run routes, catch, and run after the catch well.

I wouldn't say kw's spot is necessarily safe though. When two RB's are drafted (and the possibility of and undrafted back coming in...this is shanahan we're talking about), nobody but the top dog is safe. IMO the top dog is Torain. I think it is probable that we carry 4 RBs this year, but I wouldn't call KW "safe."

Re: Redskins Draft Analysis Thread

You still need a guy on the roster that can block on 3rd downs, Torain can't, and the rookies are going to be way too behind to pick up the nuances of pro blitz pickups in camp. I would actually say KW's job is safer than Torain's.
