I see Spiller as a return guy more than a pure RB. and that IS a need.
Like I said, I would only be happy with this IF we were to solidify our line via FA first.
i like our BD's also but we were in the bottom 5 for pass defense... The names are there but the numbers dont lie.
a Returner is not a 1st round need
Really? are you saying your fine with .7 return avg for battle. That's not even a yard! Please when rossum was healthy he alone could take it to the house and put us in the lead. Hester return game his rookie year took his team to the superbowl. Sure i agree oline first but a game changer when all season we loss by 7 or less would make those games a lot different.
we can easily get a good return man later
gilyard in 2nd
ford in third
and i know he has much more positives but look at his weaknesses per a scouting website (walter football)
