RB options behind Gore

RB options behind Gore

With Westbrook's FA plans and the teams wishes so cloudy the RB situation behind Gore is very unclear at the moment. I like Dixon but would feel better if we have at least 1 other good RB in case Gore gets hurt.

I really like Westbrook and think he could thrive if utilized correctly.

My pick re-sign BW and spend a pick on a RB between rounds 3-7 that Harbaugh likes.
We need a young speed back. And we have to start planning for a future without Frank Gore.
Dixon is OK but ideally we'll be a team that can finally pass the ball successfully and therefore mitigate RB depth as being a priority.

I really think Dixon can be special so I say just resign Westbrook but still let Dixon get his share of touches.

Offer Westbrook a contract..if he doesn't come back move Dixon to #2 and either draft a cheap veteran 3rd string RB...or draft someone.

I think Dixon is your classic pre season rb. dude comes in and tears it up. because he looked so damn timid in the regular season. he wasn't the bruiser he showed in pre season

Under Weiss ND did a lot of passing. But he still ran well when he had to. The OL has not been great for the Irish so every yard was a battle. Allen has had a bit of the injury bug but his surgery went well and they cleaned up a lot of issues that he was unaware of. He's posted a 40 in the 4.3's before so I expect him to run fast if he's (as reported) back to 100%. His ability to contribute rushing, receiving, and returning makes him an ideal late round pick. Coming from ND means he passes the intelligence test and he's played in a pro system for the majority of his career.
