You don't take a KR in the first round.
Spiller is far more than a KR/PR. He can catch it, he can run it. He can spell Gore and if (when) Gore gets injured again he'll do a much better job filling in than Coffee or M-Rob.
In three or four years when Gore's production drops off dramatically he'll be ready to step in and assume a full-time work load.
I believe we have bigger fish to fry than drafting a running back in the 1st round.
Who else would you grab there? A power RT will be available with our 1b. A great guard could be had in the 2nd. I could see grabbing Thomas there instead of Spiller, but that would mean Seattle would almost certainly draft Spiller because they need a RB
Exactly. Good teams run a 2 back system, and Spiller can also shift out to WR. He's a threat on so many different levels.
