Plus, a rookie can easily come in and contribute if we need a back next season. Even if Gore goes down, I feel like a Hunter/Jacobs duo is enough to win in the NFL.
Hill scares me. I like some of the OGs, but we've spent so many early picks on the Oline, I feel like the 1st is bad value for us. With good coaching, which we now have, a 2nd round OG should be able to produce for us.
So... RB, OG, or Hill. That pretty much describes 75% of the mocks.
Uhh, no we are not. An aging Gore competing against father time just as much as he is defenses, washed up Jacobs, undersized Hunter, and underachieving Dixon is far from loaded.
Gore is not washed up. He may be on the back side of his career, but he's not washed up. Hunter is a little undersized, but he produces when he's on the field. He's short, but compact. Not worried about him. Jacobs isn't exactly who you want as a featured back, but he's a veteran and he can get the job done. Cartwright is also a tough runner, who can start if needed and catch the ball out of the backfield.
Jacobs is a one year thing, but we're not looking bad at RB. I wouldn't feel great wih Dixon starting, but he's shown some ability, as well. Our RB group is looking better than most teams'.
I assumed this meant who we didn't want to draft in the 1st and I hope we don't draft a RB in the 1st.
