Use the other first rounder on a pass rusher or Eric Berry and we're set.
We will NOT draft Best if we don't unload one of our HB's, you can quote me on that
(this based on the theory that Best 1) declares, 2) goes in the 1st round, 3) goes in the top 10)
And why not?
The Titans drafted Chris Johnson to compliment Lendale White. The Niners almost drafted Deangelo in 2006 after we knew Frank Gore was legit. The Cowboys drafted Felix Jones despite Marion Barber. There are million examples.
If Singeltary wants to run the ball 60% of the time, we need two elite backs. Coffee is a nice backup running back, but he's starting to get overrated by Niner fans.
