Dolphins | Taking RB in early rounds unlikely
Thu, 27 Apr 2006 12:46:40 -0700
Jason Cole, of the Miami Herald, reports a <A href="http://www.kffl.com/team/22/nfl">Miami Dolphins team source has said it's unlikely that the team will draft a running back in the first, third or fourth rounds because there are too many needs at other positions. However, Miami could select a running back with one of their three seventh-round picks or look to acquire one via free agency.

I saw that. Its probably a good idea not to spend a high draft choice
on a RB because we have other needs. But to get one as DEPTH in the
draft or free agency as an INSURANCE policy is a good idea...

But who really knows what Saban will do. He's not gonna give away his strategy either....

I'm cool with that idea. We do have a lot of posititons to fill and not enough picks. There is a lot of depth at RB in this draft. Does anyone know of some solid 7th round picks out there?

yea it would be completely ridiculous to draft a rb in the first round when we already have ronnie the #2 overall pick last year and when we could use the help at other positions...im not buying into that we are desperate for a running back because all we need is a solid back up running back its not like we are in the running for a new starting running back its not like many teams in the nfl have that many great back up running backs

drafting a running back is absurd, just like greg cote.

Why? The article says he would probably take one in the 7th round..
Drafting a RB in the 7th is " absurd" ????

a 7th round RB is definitely a good idea. Little risk because we have 3 players, and Saban will pick a guy with potential. Was not Willie parker a 6th round pick or so?
