    It's going to be Steve Slaton. LenDale White. Chris Henry. Steve Slaton.
    We all know we will pick a RB in round 2. It just so happens to be Slaton ;)

    Slaton recieved a 2nd round grade from advisory committee

    We will not draft a running back in the 2nd round. Steve Slaton is to small.

    They need a smaller, faster back. What is Willie Parker too small too?

    The talent in the 2nd or even 3rd round for RB looks to be really good this year. On one hand, it'd suck having to spend another high pick on a RB, but it's hard to argue taking the BPA for that position to me, I think we can use help there.

    Two guys I've seen a lot that impressed me were Rice and Choice. Both may be 3rd rounders. Didn't see Forte from Tulane, but he's got a bit of a buzz, and he's a bigger guy. Boyd from SC impressed me, but I guess he's more in the 4-5 round range.

    watch us draft a late round RB and he become our starter next season. that would be crazy, i doubt it, but this years RB draft is deep

    Taking Slaton would be a mistake. He went downhill at the age of 21. That's not a good sign. Dropped 2 yards per carry within 1 season, when he was supposed to be better. He was out of shape, and we don't need another RB to come in to camp 20lbs over weight.

    If we had to take a RB I would hope it would be either the guy from Arkansas or Jamal Charles from Texas. They are about the same and both would be an improvement over what whe currently have.

    no RB in 2nd round please, please, please

    if Earl Bennett is still sitting there then it should be an easy choice if we didn't go WR in Rnd 1

    Between LW, CB and CH we need no more help at RB

    Brown isn't in the mix so we do need another RB. I think we need to take a serious look at any RBs who can catch the ball and return well.

    I really like Chris Johnson if he slips to us in the 2nd round. He can be our 3rd RB, an occasional WR and a dynamic KR. The guy has blazing speed. I would be very happy if we could draft either Doucet or Bennett at WR and Chris Johnson in the first two rounds.

    I know trades are not always easy to make in the draft but I wouldn't mind seeing us trade down a few spots in the 1st, maybe even to the early second and trade up in the second. The high value IMO for RBs and WRs is going to be early to middle 2nd round. I certainly don't want to sit where we are in the second round and watch Bennett get picked right before our pick.

    We need to re-sign as many of our DL and OL guys as we can (maybe gage as well) with our CAP money and draft some play makers. Our new OC will know how to use them.
