In which case hes would be future.
Cant really compare where gore as picked to where LMJ was picked. If Frank didnt have the injurys he would have been the first back taken. Brown, Benson, Williams, Arrington, and Shelton were all drafted ahaed of him, but everyone and their mom knew he was the best back at Miami durring his era. He as better than Portis, He was better than Mcgahee. Guy had a 9.1 YPC average as a freshman, which as the second best average in school history. If it wasnt for Gores injury's which have hurt his speed over the years we would be talking about gore as one of the best RB's in the history of the game and a for sure first ballot HOF. Only reason he was drafted where he as was because of the injurys.
But i agree RB isaint a necessity, with Hunter, LMJ, and the unknow Hampton on the roster, but with all of our picks, if the right back fell it would be worth spending a mid round pick on one.
