    One of Waddle or Smith should be there at 16. I would definitely pull the trigger on Waddle in that scenario because he’s a complete WR. He can play inside or out, he’s an excellent deep threat but can also take a slant or screen to the house and returns punts.

    Why? What's better to use than data from the ultimate prize? What else matters?

    That's like me saying "90% of people that make it to the top of Everest use an experienced Sherpa" and you saying "Yeah but what about those that make it to base camp?"

    One running back might go in the 1st round wowzers. And even that's not set in stone.

    You do like to attempt to misdirect; you try with every post. It's not the number of RBs in the round. Riddle me this: Why would a top organization like the Stillers do such an "obviously stupid thing that should never, ever be done?"

    I'm not short on opinions but the positives and negatives on both sides of the ball last season leave me perplexed.

    I could of course, like you, bloviate on everything with the basic premise that "life's a bitch and then you die" but prefer not to.

    Who said it should never ever be done? I said that it was a luxury pick and unlikely to add value according to analytics.

    The Steelers have very good WR's, a QB under contract and no chance of finding a replacement at #24 and a good defense. They could do with a CB but again there may not be any there at #24.

    So they have the luxury of having very few holes and RB happens to be a big one for them. And I still think it's more likely they go OL or CB and take a RB in round 2.

    Why? Are you seriously trying to tell me that teams making the SB with RB by committee is somehow a misrepresentation of the league as a whole?

    Yes. There's been teams that have won it a with workhorse back too. There's been teams that have won it with a backup QB. There's been teams that have won it with a great defense and crap offense.

    Point being, there a numerous variables to winning the SB. Not just what's at RB.

    Did all the experienced sherpas use the exact same path and do the exact same thing to make it to the top of Everest? I highly doubt it.

    Yep.

    One of.... the three CB's, Smith or Chase, Parsons, or Slater will be there. My hail mary over Collins would be Paye or Waddle.

    Really? You think I meant that no other factors are involved? You think I meant have a RB by committee and you win the SB? Sheesh.

    There only one thing I meant and thats this, just to be clear.

    Running back by committee gives you higher odds of success than a bellcow RB, and that is unequivocally born out by the data. There's no guarantee involved, but statistically committee performs better than a bellcow.

    Actually, if you saw the lineup of climbers and sherpas you'd conclude that they are doing the exact same thing.
