    We need a bigtime Runningback

    IMO we are NOT set at runningback. Bush is not the answer, neither is Thomas and Miller is unproven. A Q.B.s best friend is a running game and we don't have one. Before the Cowboys drafted Emmit Smith their o-line was not highly though of. Bring in Smith and suddenly the o-line is elite. We need a Doug Martin type of guy. With our first pick we go wide reciever or runningback. If there is a super stud reciever with our first pick grab him. Our next pick based on that scenario should be a kickass runningback. What runningback could we get in free agency? I don't care if we draft one or get one in free agency it's clear that if we are to build around Tannehill we must land an elite runningback. Give Tanny some weapons and he will be great! Playaction only works when the runner is feared and our group isn't scareing anybody. Our biggest need is reciever. After that bring in a killer runnigback. Suddenly our offense will be looking alot better.

    There is no way in hell you pick running back in the 1st round cmon now. If miller is unproven then let's wait to see what he can do.

    Yes we do. We need a big time running back and big time receiver and big time db. Tired of waiting to rebuild.

    both of those being much more a bigger need, it's stupid to waste a 1st round pick on a RB on the current pro pass nfl let alone a top 10 pick which is where we're heading. What running back do you see is worth a top 20 pick next years draft?And since when do you expect a rookie to be "big time" I rather stick with lamar miller who has been doing good for his few touches.

    You can say what you want about the NFL being a pass nfl offense, but look at the past Super Bowl winners. Each one of them had a legitimate run game. Only team you could argue with is possibly the Saints.

    The Giants last year did not have a "big time" running back fyi there is a lot that contributes into a running game not just the running back.

    I only said we need a legitimate running game, not a big time running back. I honestly think we have bigger needs than Running Back. I feel we need another WR, more Pass Rushing, and a play making safety more than anything. Also to solidify our o-line would be nice too. Also the Giants running game was pretty good in the playoffs.

    Big-time RB is not a priority. Certainly not a 'need'. Just have to run it consistently. If we happen to land one, cool.
