I cant think of a player I have been more up/down on in such a short amount of time. I went into the draft with him being a distant 5th of the RBs I was reaally interested in (Moreno, Wells, Brown, Greene) but over the course of the year he slowly won me over. While I knew he would never be a brian westbrook or a solo #1 back (do they make those anymore??) I thought he could be something if put in the right situation.
I dont know what happened as time has passed but I have completely fallen out of love with the guy and in turn fallen for a handful of RBs that are projected to go around where we picked mccoy last year. I did get excited when I came up with an idea during my mock draft ( http://bit.ly/chSTRT ) about pairing him up in an earth, wind, fire trio with dexter mccluster and lagarrette blount but that idea was quickly shot down when I was reminded of the Mike Bell signing. Looking at all of the different possibilities with that trio and the relatively small amount we actually have guaranteed to Bell (500K) I dont think its completely improbable to see us bring in those 2... but at the same time not very likely.
With all that being said, assuming Mike Bell makes it through training camp, who else do we bring in?? Does anyone else even view this as an area we need to address in the draft?? Maybe with Donovan around we could squeeze by with those 2 but I really think we are going to have give Kevin some more to work with if we want him to succeed. Do we look at a big power back (Gerhart, Blount) or does Weaver got that under control?? Do we look for a smaller scat back (best, mccluster) or is that supposed to be Shady's area??
