And may I add, good players at premium positions.Just take good players. And it seems they got four good players who could start/contribute in meaningful ways this year. I never thought they'd take a RB this high
One thing I completely dont understand is why anyone assumes any of these backs (beyond the top 3) would be better than Gaskin. (If you want to say Ahmed as well, the same applies) I’m not the biggest Gaskin fan, but he put up good numbers...and at times it was with the shitshow passing game where there wasn’t a receiver on the field the defense needed to respect. It would stand to reason Gaskin could be much better simply by having the likes of Fuller and Waddle on the field. You start lining those two up all over, or sending one in motion, it’s entirely different situation for any back. Or you likely want to incorporate more quick passes to those guys in lieu of running plays. Guess that’s just a long way of saying, I think the most important part of a successful running game is going to be line play and scheme.l more so than forcing one of these second tier guys.
Plus they still could get a guy like Chuba Hubbard, who wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up a good starting back.
