    So I am really digging Stephan Taylor out of Stanford this season so far. This dude reminds me of Ray Rice so much it isn't even funny.

    Also, I totally disagree with anyone who think Barrett Jones will be a 2nd round pick. This guy looks like the second coming of Bruce Matthews to me and any team in the mid/late first round who needs OL help would be insane not to grab him.

    It was a dream to have Barrett in the 2nd, lol my bad.

    I'm stuck on Le'Veon Bell from Mich St as our RB. Could be obtained in the 2nd and use our 1st on a S/OG/DE

    Bell is my second choice but I'd be happy with either one.

    I think Taylor is the more explosive of the two though and I know he can produce in a high powered passing offense. Taylor reminds me of Ray Rice/Brian Westbrook and that what our offense needs now.

    Honestly, I've never seen Taylor play... so I can't comment. YouTube here I come.

    If you can try and look atg his most recent game vs. USC. I think that is his signature game. Taylor's issue is that he was overshadowed so long by Luck.

    Yeah looking a game tapes, I remember him in the Bowl Game... he's got the body size. His receiving stats aren't that amazing, for having Luck throwing to you. Looks solid though. I just hope we take a runningback 2nd-3rd round.. someone to knock CJ and his teeth off this team.

    It was more having so many other targets in the offense. Also, Harburgh doesn't feature a ton of H-Back passes in his offense.

    .......maybe when he had Luck. Now Harbaugh is all about running.

    There's a ton of solid RBs this year

    *Marcus Lattimore
    *Le'Veon Bell
    *Eddie Lacy
    Andre Ellington
    Stepfan Taylor
    Montee Ball
    *Knile Davis
    Rex Burkhead
    Silas Redd
    *Joseph Randle

    Running, yes.
    Throwing it to the HB's, no.

    This is the year to get a HB

    For sure dude. I'd be happy with ANY of those runningbacks.
