That's precisely why I am confident in Keiland Williams, James Davis or any other bum off the street.

agreed, it's not a position that I see him worrying about early in the draft, given that he's got no 3rd or 4th round. If a guy like Ryan Williams is there in the 3rd or 4th & we've acquired a pick, I wouldn't be surprised if he took him. Lucky for us, the RB class is not too deep & tempting. If there were great prospects to choose from it might just complicate the draft even more.

Bumping this so I can say I told you so when we sign one of these guys next week.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai

I have one question for you...

Did you watch the draft? Did you at least look at the outcome of our picks? Did you see RB next a few of them?

No, no, and no...oh wait...NO!!!

None of our RB picks are on the roster.
None of them are signed.
Only one of them is projected to make the roster.
I'd love to see the Roy Roy backfield be successful but they have yet to even attend an NFL training camp.
But thanks for the smarta$$ remarks anyways, sonny.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai

Personally I think Helu is going to be a stud. The rest is just a matter of the lock-out ending. Technicalities at best...

Glad you love my smart$ss remarks...

I like the rookies we drafted, Helu in particular. He's got the quickness you look for in Shanahan's system, one cut and homerun. No need to do anything at this position, we're good.

Re: Mewelde Moore/Cedric Benson/Joseph Addai

What Schneed said, except that this is a particularly loaded RB class. In a normal free agency year, this is the kind of class where you know that supply exceeds demand, so you can let the market decide who isn't going to get signed, and then in July you go out and pick up a back like a Jerious Norwood or a Leon Washington who can actually make the difference in one or two out of your 16 games.

Problem is, the market isn't going to set until the middle of the preseason. Now, we are in an advantageous position because we have no need anywhere on the RB depth chart. I still think Shanahan brings someone in, even if it's unlikely they make the team, because it's so rare that a potential starter at RB will be available in the middle of August on a one year contract, but that's where we're at this year.

This would have been more effective if you actually bumped it after we signed one of them

Not enough space on the 79 man roster in camp. We need RBs with fresh legs.

Eh this is better than another Haynesworth thread or a stupid "tanking" thread.
