Draft threads belong in the draft forum.

a.) Playmaking WR, Jackson or Holmes would fit the bill. They would give Culpepper another option and make defenses get out of the box allowing Ronnie to get his yards easier as defenses would have to play honest.

b.) OL. Mangold would be nice to pick up if we could move down and get some more picks. Without Ricky's superior vision IMO as compare to Ronnie we need consistent blocking and Center is a glaring weakness on the O line.

Addressing RB in this draft via a selection does not make sense. We have other holes to fill and not enough picks to invest in a benchwarmer. Only way is if one of our 7ths is used to bring in a RB that can immediately impact Special Teams.

the only effect rickys suspention may have on yalls draft is that you MAY draft a RB on sunday.

We did re-sign Sammy and Minor, so we can give Ronnie a break. But I do agree, we need to bring in at least one more WR. Maybe not in the first, but another guy to work, and groom there

Ronnie Brown you better be ready for a load of workWhy? No more than any other starting RB in the NFL. If they didn't think he should be a full time starter, then they should have drafted Braylon Edwards.
On the ESPN draft special last night they questioned whether Ronnie could do the job, stating that he has always shared carries in a 2 back system. However, no one makes the same case for Carnell Williams.
Last time I checked both Caddy and Brown had better rookie years than the guy who was supposed to be more NFL ready, Cedric Benson.
