RB is not a top need if Gore comes back but his injury is not the type that is easily mended, so where would you pick a RB in this draft?
I see the top three needs as pass rush, CB and QB but will the 9ers be able to find a RB in the 4th round if Gore isn't coming back. Or, if Gore's recovery concerns the team will they move that need up the list?
This is one reason I could see them trading back in the draft for more picks and picking one of the top guys in the first.
1. R. Williams, Va. Tech (similar to Gore, great receiver, durability issues?)
2. M. Leshoure, Illinois
3. J. Rodgers, Oregon St.
4. M. Ingram, Alabama
5. D. Thomas, Kansas St. (big & tough to bring down, great receiver, very durable)
WCO running backs need to block in the backfield, receive, and run inside and out. Who can do all three?
