I kinda feel the same way.
I wanted us to draft a RB.
In absolutely no way does signing a 29 year old running back to a 1 year deal stop us from drafting a RB. First round or otherwise.
Jacobs, like Moss, is not a lock to even make this team.
If it were this signing alone, but if you factor in Gore, Hunter and now the Jacobs signing, drafting a 1st round RB is definitely a luxury that this team (on the verge of a Super Bowl run) might not be able to afford. Not saying it can't or won't happen, but it's not likely (IMO) unless Trent Richardson falls to #30.
Gore and Jacobs may not be on this roster next offseason. Heck, Jacobs may not be on this roster this September.
We have zero long term solutions for a 3-down back. And there is no need to paint ourselves into a corner next draft when we will desperately need one, and pray somebody good falls to us. Not an envious position for a run-first team.
If a legit 3-down option is available to us in the draft, we will take him.
