    I really want a top tier running back from the 2nd round. 2nd half of last year, after teams focused on taking away Murrays option, it felt like 3rd and 1 was harder to convert than 3rd and 10. I remember in the NE and Miami losses we couldn't convert crucial 3rd/4th and 1s. Having a real weapon at RB, that teams have to account for, will make it so they cant just focus in on taking away Murrays running.

    We saw Edmonds as the bell cow and he got slightly over 2 yards per carry.

    Not voting @Solar7 because I wouldn't use a first on a RB, but I would 2nd round and later.

    No. No. NO.

    We need to go young, or at least get a vet that doesn't have medical issues.

    Sign a vet and draft a late round guy.

    Well, obviously I don't want to reach either, but assuming relatively similar value between multiple players at a certain spot. If Devonta Smith is there in the 2nd round for some reason, of course we wouldn't go RB. But if it's a reasonably placed 2nd round OL player or RB and we have the chance to take Harris/Etienne/Williams, I think going RB is a no-brainer.

    Sorry, I know this sounds like a cop out. This is situational. It depends on who’s available when they pick. Normally I wouldn’t take an RB in the first 2 rounds but if by some stroke of fortune they could move down in round one getting Harris or Williams was there in round two I’d consider it a reasonable option. However if I could get a top 3 corner in round one or a quality receiver in two I’d prefer that.

    EXACTLY. If we fail to sign a cheap FA I think we should pick up a big back like Rhamondre Stevenson in the later rounds to compliment Edmonds.

    I’m on board with drafting Williams in round 2 if he’s there. I get and understand the value of positions but if he can help this team win football games next year that’s all that matters. As a fan, I couldn’t care less if he’s on the team seven years from now if he helps them make it to the playoffs next year or the year after.

    With the toughness factor added to our O-line, a talented back would touch the ball 40% of the plays . . invest in a good one.

    RPO only works when the RB is a threat.

    I would love Etienne or Najee Harris in round 2 (unlikely they’d still be there).

    With that said, and this might sound crazy, but would it be the end of the world to just roll with Chase, Eno, and Jonathan Ward who looked good scoring that TD in week 17?

    We essentially have no idea if Eno and Ward are ballers. I’m not just following the logic, “they must not be good because the coaches didn’t play them.”

    We also kept starting Andy Isabella and not giving chances to guys like Trent Sherfield who could actually catch the ball. We never gave Vallejo a chance even though he shined in his limited snaps. We started Streveler over Hundley who has actually won us a game. We kept Simmons on the bench even though by the end of the year he already looked like one of our best players on the field when he actually got to play. For all we know Jonathan Ward can ball but he’s buried on the depth chart.

    What I've got to ask is - if RBs are a dime a dozen, why haven't the Cardinals had more than 6 RBs who have eclipsed 700 yards in a season in the 33 years they've been in AZ?
