    Although it doesn't mean running with no starting RBs improves a chance at winning. I still don't see a starting RB on our roster. Hence our dilemma, as we don't have the mid-round ammo we need to get a starting RB.

    You don't. Most everyone else does.

    There's literally a 3 year starter on the roster for a team that's made the playoffs 2 out of the last 4 seasons he was there.

    Now, wouldn't that be something. I see Waddle as the best receiver in this draft. Instead of trading up, I could also see them trading down a tad & drafting Harris before the Steelers snatch him up. We owe that to them for trading up & snatching Shazier & Dupree just before our picks.

    That's great. I hope "most everyone else" is right, because that would mean we're playing well. I don't see Conner as some RB knight in shining armor. I don't see an Edmonds/Conner tandem as a starting time share as any kind of solution on a team that wants to make a serious run. Especially with KK at the helm. Fingers crossed that the spit and baling wire approach works out for us.

    The #Giants are slated to pick No. 11 in the NFL Draft, and trading back is already something they are internally considering, I’m told. That spot will have real value. … How rare would a trade down be? GM Dave Gettleman has never traded down in the 1st round in 8 drafts as a GM

    We already covered these points at length

    1. You don't need a knight in shining armor
    2. Many, many teams have made or won the SB with worse RB's. Including the 2008 Cardinals.
    3. A good RB isn't the key to a good offense. A good offense is key to a good running back.

    Like I said earlier...this isn't 1984.

    The Eagles won a Super Bowl with pretty much scrubs. Kyler Murray is the centerpiece of this offense. Surround him with good receivers and competent RBs and a good OL. The Cardinals need one more receiver.
