I see both James and dixon being gone by next years 53 man roster
I kind of agree with him. I just don't see LMJ purpose. He can't run up the middle and he has problems breaking tackles. His style is just not conducive to the power run scheme. I'm not saying he isn't good but maybe a move would be good for everyone because he has ability. I think people believe he's going to be our darren sproles and I don't think Harbaugh wants that for the offense. If he does we should just pick up Dri Archer or someone a little more agile the LMJ.
I love Hydes running style but I don't we need another RB. People need to start considering what we have on the roster and how long we will have it before they decide we need to draft somebody. We have PLENTY of RB's on the roster. We have PLENTY of DL on the roster. Ideally you want to wait for contracts to expire and replace them with draft picks.
I think the best time to draft another RB will be next years draft. We have Gore, Hunter, and LMJ all with expiring contracts. That years class will be absolutely insane. Yeldon, Gurley, Deanthony thomas, Duke Johnson, Jeremy Hill, Matt Jones, Tre Maon, Melvin Gordon, Isiah Crowell, Michael Dyer, and Mike Davis. There's going to be wealth of fast, power runners and we could easily pick one up with 3-5th rounder.
