I have experienced twinges of envy every time I watched Trent Richardson carry the ball for the Browns. We need a tough, reliable guy like that (like we always had in the past!). My wish is that we get Eddie Lacy. Of him, it has been written that "he will make his money between the tackles". Lacy will convert those 3rd & shorts. So, the collective hope of Steeler Nation should be that Eddie Lacy is there when make our pick.
I have a hard time taking a RB early but when you look at Doug Martin and Trent Richardson it makes a case. Look at the NE backfield. They always have a serviceable RB because Brady stays on his feet. He usually has a couple good receivers and then some retreads like Stallworth and Branch.
I am flip flopping all over the place but maybe we trade back and take the TE from Stanford and grab an extra 3rd. Round 2 we look for a WR and then round 3 we go Rambo and a LB?
Thoughts. When was Ridley or Vereen drafted?
Just looked it up........Ridley 73 and Vereen at 56
Montee Ball or Stephan Taylor if lacy is taken...
We had serviceable running backs last year. How'd that work out?
