    take a lower ranked RB that had good production in the SEC, if you can run in the SEC you can run in the NFL. That's what the Pats did (Ridley, Bolden) Zac Stacy would be a good pick for any team in need of RB help. Pats don't have a need or else I would be jumping all over him (Ridley, Bolden, Vereen, Woodhead, Demps) all but Woodhead are 1st or 2nd year players.

    not many things in life are guaranteed but......0% chance we take a RB in the 1st round of the draft....0 percent.

    I'd say as a rule the best value for RBs is in the middle rounds. Actually except for Ringer's injury problems he was a good value pick. The number of solid RBs coming out of college who can be serviceable NFL players is quite high.

    If we get an early pick in the draft we should be looking at DL, particularly DE without question.

    There is a chance that we can go 9-7. If so, we are going to pick in the 20s. I like Marcus, but we need Oline and Safety help. I think it is too early to talk draft, but since we are, we should look at FA Olinemen and safeties. Finally, I'd much rather cut Griffin than CJ. CJ has no line, Griff is just awful.

    Sadly, the Vols likely ended Lattimore's career

    even if we draft in the mid to late 1st round i dont see why anyone with any common sense would want to draft another 1st round rb. look at the list posted previously about all the rb's that have found success without being drafted in the 1st round.

    anyone who has watched this team this year, knows that this team has alot more needs that come above another rb, especially in this pass heavy league.

    my last point is what i wanted us to do before we gave cj a new contract. we should trade cj for whatever we can get out of him in the off-season and draft a mid to late round rb that could do the same thing for us that cj will do for us in the future, especially if we move into the leagues new pass heavy style with locker
