    Why not bring a young stud in as well as kindof an insurance policy/possible replacement for CT if he opts out in a year or two.

    My choices would be:

    a.
    Chris Johnson (5th if he makes it that far)
    b.
    Anthony Aldridge
    c.
    Rafael Little
    My thoughts exactly, since both of our Rbs msed atleast 3 games last year.

    I would LOVE for us to get Chris Johnson. After running a 4.24 40 he wont make it into the 3rd, and if some how made it to our 3rd pick we would have to take him. Simply to much talent to pass up.

    Re: Who Do we draft at RB if anyone.

    If we get a RB in the draft I think it will be in the late rounds also.
    We would probably add a different type of runner than what we have right now.
    We have a fast, powerful runner in AD, we have CT as the versatile 3rd down back with solid skills, and we have Hicks who is a special teamer and kind of like a less developed CT.
    I think we look for a power-back that can catch and block well, i.e. Xavier Omon

    He is the sleeper pick that our FO loves to find in the late rounds of the draft.
    I think he would be a good project 3rd stringer who could eventually replace CT as AD's primary backup.

    Kevin Smith might be a steal if we can snag him in the 3rd or 4th as well.

    Re: Who Do we draft at RB if anyone.

    I dont think that we will draft a runningback, because if the signign of Maurice Hicks, they also told him that he was in for some playing time, so they might already like him very much.

    However i know that we speaked too USC runningback Chauncey Washington at the senior bowl, so that might have sparked some interest.

    Re: Who Do we draft at RB if anyone.

    it's like a kid in the candy store..... we have entirely too many needs to even think about a Running back unless he's drafted for SPTEams... there's no way we need one.. plus we have quite a few already on the roster...

    we draft a wr before we look at Rb... we have two possible
    pro bowlers there.. i don't see it...

    Didn't we just get Hicks, too? I doubt we draft anyone unless it's the final pick.
