I hear what you're saying but drafting Gore's replacement this year might not be the best move since he will hardly touch the ball (barring injury). I think '13 would be the time to get out next RB. Just my opinion...
Best case scenario, he rarely touches the ball. Worst case scenario: Gore gets injured (which isn't, like, totally unheard of), and we have an undersized back carrying the load. I understand that Jacobs is insurance against that, but RBs wear down quickly, especially at 28/29. Drafting a potential three-down back would take the pressure off Gore and prepare us for the future.
Whatevs, its moot now. Welcome Brandon.
