Doesnt play well with others
You're missing my point.

The vast majority of successful RB's the last 5 seasons have been drafted in the 4th round and later.
We already have a glorified 1st rounder in Bush. Spending that high a pick on another is NOT a good idea.
Here's food for thought:
Any team is only going to get so many running plays, and with our new coach and system, that number is probably going to go way way down.
Reggie Bush showed what he can do this last season if showcased in the right offense. He looked pretty damn good.
Now then, we spend a top 10 on an RB's and two detrimental things are going to happen:
A) Said Rookie is NOT going to get many touches. Not nearly enough to warrant a top 10 pick. He's not going to play special teams either, so his value per touch goes way down.
B) Any touches he does get takes away from Bush, and as I mentioned, he showed exactly what can happen when he gets enough touches.
IF we were another RB away from being really great, then it would be a pick I might consider
WE have many much more pressing needs including, and in no particular order (Well, kind've)
Pass rusher opposite Cam Wake (Denver did pretty damn good defensively now that they have somebody across from Dummerville, and I do attribute their success this last year to Von Miller more than even Tebow)
TE- A true seam busting TE
FS- We all know that we have never had that true ballhawk back there. That instantly shores up the CB spot as they can read and react better with help over the top.
Picking another RB top 10 would make about as much sense as picking another LT or Center right now............
