    I think I would rather get Mendenhall.

    Do you have an order of RB you think we should take?

    I think we just need something until next years draft when we can draft an all purpose AP like RB

    I think we should build our line then just be able to plug almost anyone back there. I am not longer behind the idea of dropping serious money on one, or spending anything higher than a 2nd round pick.

    I've always like Benson's running style. Not the fastest guy but he can really pound it out. For the right price he'd be a great addition. I'd also really like to take Rex Burkhead from Nebraska if he's there in the 3rd or 4th round.

    NO no no no no

    Benson sure, he's smart enough to come from a man blocking scheme to a zone and made it work last year. Maybe CJ could learn something from him.

    Benson or Brandon Jacobs, both grinders and will get small 1 year contracts. Heck, bring them both in and let them compete for 1 spot in camp. We dont have to get a longterm solution this year. I still believe we should take a late round flier on Lattimore if he is available after the 4th, and let him fully rehab and recover on IR for a year.

    I like him and don't think he'd be a bad pickup. But I think I'd prefer we just draft a guy in the middle rounds (if it was an Either/Or situation). Benson doesn't have very much tread left on the tires. And we need to start looking to the future at that position IMO.

    It's really all about the OL anyway. So many teams are getting solid-to-great production out of mid/late-round guys. We just for some reason have one of the worst OLs in the league despite having two HoF OL on the coaching staff. :rolleyes:

    Draft Lacy if he's there in the 2nd. If he's gone, wait until later in the draft to take a RB.
