I was on the Spiller bandwagon early, but I think it's completely out of control now. I would rather have Best than Spiller. They are very similar; however, I think Best is the better pure runner. My only hesistation with Spiller is that he will cost an early 1st and I just don't see him as a guy that will ever challenge for a rushing title. He's more of a situational guy, IMO. I think he's best be suited for a team like the Eagles or the Patriots.
Also, I think McCluster was a bit overrated for a while on this board also. I wouldn't spend our 2nd on him, but if he's there in the 3rd, I wouldn't hesitate to grab him. McCluster is a poor man's Harvin. If we continue to play out of the Shotgun, McCluster would fit our offense nicely. He has the quicknes and speed to get up field in a hurry. Plus, he's even more dangerous as a receiver.
To take it a step further, I think we really have to land one of these speedy backs. If you watch the Chargers play, you'll see how much Rivers relies on dumping the ball off to his backs and TE. We have Vernon, but we don't really have a threat out of the backfield. I love Gore. Don't get me wrong, but I don't think Gore is that big of a threat when the ball is dumped off to him. We need a player (like Sproles) that has some dangerous speed and that can make people miss in the open field. When Sproles gets the ball in space, no one has an answer for it. He's too quick and nearly untouchable in the open field. That's something our offense really could use. We don't have that high percentage, dumpoff pass for Alex. The better QBs usually do: Brady-to-Welker, McNabb-to-Westbrook, Peyton-to-Clark, Romo-to-Witten, etc..
Vernon should be that guy for us, but it hasn't happened that way. He isn't the best at getting seperation, unless he's darting the field. Plus, since we lack a deep threat, Vernon has kind of been stuck in the role of stretching the field.
To wrap this up... I think Spiller could fill an important role for us, but I think Best or McCluster could also do the same. Of the three, I think Best has the highest ceiling and is the most talented. His concussions and size are limiting his draft status, but I think he's the most talented RB in this class. Best would be an absolute steal if he's there in the 2nd (I think he'll go in the 1st though). Spiller would be a good pick, but I have doubts about him. He's a better version of Reggie Bush, IMO, but not really a franchise RB. I would prefer not to spend a 1st on him, though I wouldn't complain about the pick. McCluster will struggle running the ball as a traditional RB, but I don't think he'd be drafted for that anyway. He's a 3rd-down RB and someone that could really help a QB in the passing game. That's why I wouldn't touch him before the 3rd. Since we have Gore, I think McCluster would be a solid pick for us.
I've tried to stay out of the whole Siller discussion, but there's my take.
Rant complete! Now, back to my studying.
