    Okay, I have to admit I'm finding this subject maddening. I feel like the general vibe is very much against upgrading the RB position in any meaningful way.

    How do you actually feel? What's your reasoning behind it?

    I don't really fall into any specific poll answer camp.
    I think this system makes the RB position far less valuable. Because of Kyler's running and the quick passing game, any RB can function effectively. Edmonds has proven he can handle the duty when needed. However, I don't really see him as a clear cut starter. I think he is better suited as a rotational piece with another RB. I see more of a 1 and 1A type RB situation. I would like to see us get a bigger goal line/short yardage type back to pair with Edmonds.
    Not sure why Eno didn't get any carries. Maybe Etienne falls into Rd 2 but I don't think we need to draft a RB high unless they are absolute BPA.

    My dream draft is trading down from 16 to mid20s.

    nabbing Newsome or Samuel there

    and picking up Javonte Williams in the late 2nd with the gained draft capital.

    My dream scenario is Javonte Williams, Rd 2.

    Trade back in the 1st, acquire a 4th, then use that 4th to acquire a RB.

    I want to get one in the draft, maybe 2 actually.

    Probably trade down in the second and use the 3rd or 4th we get to draft one, than maybe one of the 7th rounders as well.

    Wherever we have to take them based on what’s happening, hopefully there isn’t some stupid run and we can do this.

    I say they draft an RB in first or second round and he becomes the starter. Do prefer the 2nd round.

    I figured either plenty of options or people would complain it was too simple.

    I mean, a FA with experience would be nice, especially a bigger bodied one but a rookie RB could be good too and choosing the round to take them before you are even in the draft is kinda a weird thing. LEts go BPA 1st, need second. If one of the best guys available at one of your picks is an RB and he will fit and have more impact than another position, get em.

    We probably need two more RB anyway.
    it's all pretty basic.

    RBs are a dime a dozen.

    I sign a cheap one in FA to complement Edmonds and draft one or two with a couple of our later picks. Then bring in some more via UDFA. Throw them all against the wall and see what sticks.
