Here's a thought: Not knowing today what will happen with Rick (some say 20% chance he beats the case ) and with a need at Fullback , what if he White falls to us? A split backfield ? You need quality RB's in this league. Thoughts? ( He says grinding his teeth)

I doubt it. We have no need at fullback because we signed Fred Beasely this offseason. We also have Sammy Morris. If we lose Ricky, I think we'd be more likely to sign an inexpensive free agent and let him compete with Sammy Morris and Travis Minor...

I'd rather draft Jamar Fletcher again.

:yeahthat:..Well said,Only way we take a RB in the first is if reggie bush somehow falls to us...as much as I don't wanna say,but were going D in the first :(.

I say let Lendale keep falling....he is projected to go in the LATE 1st round or possibly the 2nd....why waste a #16 on him when he has turned into the Pillsbury Doughboy and has a gimpy leg? :confused:

The only back I might take at #16 might be Lawrence Maroney of the U of Minny.....but even that would be a stretch and we don't need running backs.

Before we signed Beasley I thought that could be a possiblity.

If ricky was out, lendale would be a nice fit for us. He reminds me alot of the bus, and would be our thunder in short yardage situations.

Ronnie is no lightweight though, hes 6'0 and 232 lbs, while White is 238 lbs. (For some reason he just looks thicker.)

I dont think we need to go there now though.

I have a feeling Beasley is gonna do wonders for our rushing game though, having a FB like him will open some nice holes:)

If he was there i would pick Jimmy Williams, Lawson, Cromartie, Allen, Jackson or anyone else...but no a Rb

LenDale could barely do ONE bench press....not sure how much was on the bar but it was not much. He just looked like a lazy guy...I am sure he never worked hard at USC. This guy is the next Maurice Clarett.

You have to be kidding me? We signed Beasly and have Barnes/Morris that can play the FB position. Now with more glaring needs at DB, OL, LB, QB (backup), why would you even consider taking a RB with the 16th pick? I have to say all you who think this, or even let this thought of taking a RB at pick #16 cross your mind as something logical, should just....well, let me not say....:fire: Aside of the bashing, be reasonable. We have a stud in the making, and we don't need another stud RB at the expense of filling a need, with a stud of that position. If we had a 5th or 6th round pick I could see it then. I wouldn't waste a pick in the first 4 rounds on a RB.

:sidelol::sidelol:..damn that's harsh!!!!! haha..


It's like going to prom and forgeting to pick up the girl..one of the most important days of his life and he bombs it.How could he be so dumb and show up to the combine out of shape and almost get out bench pressed by the punter...I agree this guy smells of bust.

Your not saying that White is a 5th or 6th round pick , are you?

I wasn't joking, and no that would not be a good pick.

Yeah, lets pick a guy with the attitude of Ryan Leaf, at a position we dont need. Brilliant.

Unbelievable.

I dont care if Ricky misses the next 6 years, that would be a wasted pick when you have Ronnie Brown

If we go offense I think it will be Santonio Holmes or Chad Jackson

Negative. Just saying that if we had a 5th or 6th round pick, I wouldn't mind using it on a RB. Since we only have a 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 7, I don't see us drafting a RB unless it's in the 7th.

I think it'd be a waste for a bunch of reasons.

1: We have way more important needs than RB to waste our 1st rounder on one when we already took a franchise RB in round one last year

2: We had Ricky and Ronnie last year and didnt seem to effectively use them. If anything it just gave away what we would be doing to the opponent whe one or the other was in. I also think it HURT Ronnie, Ricky too, because it seemed like everytime they'd get somefortable and into a rhythm the other would be subbed in and BAM, there goes the momentum. There was just so much potential there and I don't think we used it effectively.

3: Nobody knows what is going on whith him lately. He was great this year, I think he was the better RUNNING BACK (in terms of pure runner, not all around player) at USC, and he was the only real effective part of the "unstoppable offense" in the Rose Bowl against my Longhorns. HOWEVER, his weight is going crazy, hes got high body fat, and, for a POWER running back he had one of the lowest numbers of bench reps at the combine. I don't usually judge a guy on his combine but that raised a red flag in my book. I know he has the hamstring injusry, which is just another red flag oin terms of how he will recover, but a hammy doesnt effect bench pressing, and he did HORRIBLE, he got out benched by tiny Reggie Bush and was towards the bottom of the reps list for ALL positions, not just RB.

Thanks for the post and the well thought out reasoning. I post White's #'s for those who can't seem to remember or never saw the kid play , so it's not directed at you.

Like I said , I apprieciate the well thought out reply. As I mentioned , I was wanting some thought on the pick SHOULD we lose Rick to suspension. Myself, I like having two quality backs. I thought both backs did well and if menory serves , Ronnie was hurt at one point and couldn't go in a some games. The luxury of having another great back paid off.

Thanks for the sensible reply.
