I say we trade 2015 and 2016's first rounders for Matt Forte. Or is he already a Patriot (according to incarceratedbob)?

I think they might be waiting for a resolution on this cap thing before they try to bring back Fletch. If that's not the case, then idk.

What do you guys think about them planning to re-sign Hightower? Is he still the starter?How will the carries be distributed between Hightower, Helu and Royster. Do you think they'll draft another RB in the later rounds?

I think we resign Hightower and he remains the lead back (and a vital key on third downs). I also think we'll get some UDFAs or 7th round RBs.

I would never trade 2 1st rounders for any RB.

Shanny just loves drafting RBs. Although I didn't think we would resign Tim Hightower.

I would love to resign him. He's a....pounder. Hard running SOB.
Options are...good

[QUOTE]Shanahan plans to have five or six running backs on the roster entering training camp this summer, he said. Roy Helu and Evan Royster capably replaced Hightower last season as rookies. Tailback Tristan Davis is on the roster after finishing last season on the practice squad.[/QUOTE]

Looks like we're drafting one or two backs this year.

LaMichael James? Terrance Ganaway? Chris Rainey? Jeff Demps? Doug Martin? Lamar Miller? David Wilson?

None of those guys except Demps or Rainey. If we get a RB it will be one of the guys I mentioned here.


[quote=Dirtbag59;903267][URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/vick-ballard-28/"]Vick Ballard of Mississippi State[/URL] and [URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/edwin-baker-4/"]Edwin Baker of Michigan State[/URL] grade out similarly to Helu. Decent vision, good speed, similar pre-draft grade.

Obviously Shanahan might not be looking for the next Roy Helu exactly but those two seem like candidates.

Other mid-round guys to look out for due to above average vision and one-cut run ability:

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/chris-rainey-1/"]Chris Rainey - Florida[/URL]

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/ronnie-hillman-13/"]Ronnie Hillman - San Diego State[/URL]

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/lennon-creer-5/"]Lennon Creer - Louisiana Tech[/URL]

And the highest rated vision among potential Shanahan Backs

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/tauren-poole-28/"]Tauren Poole - Tennessee[/URL]


The following backs all are reported to have very good vision but are considered a risk to go undrafted. All are falling due to durability concerns. Shanahan has picked guys graded in this range before (Royster and Torain)

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/jonas-gray-25/"]Jonas Gray - Notre Dame[/URL]

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/jeffery-demps-28/"]Jeff Demps - Florida[/URL]

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/jewel-hampton-27/"]Jewel Hampton - Southern Illinois[/URL]

[URL="http://www.profootballweekly.com/prospects/player/bryce-brown-8/"]Bryce Brown - Kansas State[/URL]

In short anyone from Florida should make us happy as should a certain back from Tennessee.[/quote]

If Hightower is healthy hell yeah you bring him back. He runs very hard and is good all around. Helu makes a great change of pace back in this scenario. If Hightower has lost a step because of the knee injury I think we have to add another starter to the roster.

I'm not confident in Royster. He strikes me as a backup.
