I been saying it for a while now. Spiller is a dream and there is little to no chance we select him. RB is THE EASIEST position to fill on a team. On top of that they are horrible value in the 1st due to the average length of their career, and that you can get good performers, in rnds 2 - 4.
While having a stud 1st round RB who piles up huge totals is sexy, look at the most recent SB Champions. You don't see LT with a ring, or Peterson with a ring, or MJD a ring, or.......
RB is a position that imo it is better to have a solid guy like Frank (I would say Frank is a 6-10 kind of guy, but year in year out), let Coffee back up. Draft a RB in the 3rd or 4th to compete with Coffee and MRob, a change of pace guy preferably, and be done with it.
This team NEEDS to spend it's early picks on the oline this season. I am absolutely convinced. I am not advocating reaching for any particular player. This team will continue to struggle if we do not bring in at least 2 linemen from the 1st 2 rounds, IMO.
My dream draft is Trent Williams, Trading back to the early 20's while also picking up an extra 4th and getting Iupati. Then give me Gilyard in the 2nd.
We need to find out what Smith has. We need to protect him and give him weapons and field position. Cause we NEED to move the hell on if/when proven Smith is not the 1. Then we have a stable of weapons and a wall up front for the next guy.

Spiller would be nice... but agreed, it's a pick we don't have the luxury to make. Dream draft would be seeing Haden fall to us at 13 (doubtful) and grabbing Williams at 17 (also doubtful). Then top rated PR/KR in the second providing nobody we had graded as a 1st round pick falls to us in the second.
