We need a north/south guy. Too much dancing behind the line of scrimmage. Best run was Rodgers 1 cut and gone. Turner should be able to get us that one yard, but he isn't as reliable as he used to be.

Agreed. Turner is slow and looks confused out there. Every time he gets the ball I can't even look because it's more than likely a garbage gain and a waste of down. He's no longer the Burner. He's lost his flame and is slowing down. If he's getting beat by our little guy (Jacquizz Rodgers) then he should be benched. Just feed Rodgers the ball and bench Turner the Burger. I say we draft a RB within the first 3 rounds next year.

Agreed! I like Giovani Bernard from UNC.

I say we draft 2 rb's, 2 lb's and 3 de's with our 7 picks next year. Let them battle it out. Winners stay. losers go. Laughing

He will be the first (maybe second) RB off the board. Hopefully we get him late in the first Razz

I completely agree. I was telling my buddie today, we need to start JacQuizz next week. Our early plan of having turner punch them and then Quizz be our change of pace is not working. We need Quizz to start and then as the defense is spread out and tired, let turner tried to move the ball. If that doesn't work and we consequently lose a playoff game because of it, he needs to be shipped out this offseason...

As to a possible replacement, I like...

FAs: Reggie Bush. Can't think of any other good ones that may be on the market

Draft: Eddie Lacy (Jr), Stepfan Taylor (Jr), Montee Ball (Sr), Michael Dyer (Jr)

The two big no's on your draft list is Taylor (he is leading the NCAA in rushes or close to it, which is a big no no come draft time) and Michael Dyer who is a wannabe thug.

Top eliligible RBs I like are:
Giovani Bernard, RS So, North Carolina
Eddie Lacy, RS Jr, Alabama
Andre Ellington, RS Sr, Clemson
Joseph Randle, Jr, UCLA

And some sleepers:
Kenjon Barner, RS Sr, Oregon
Zac Stacy, Sr, Vanderbilt
Orwin Smith, Sr, Georgia Tech

Bush would fit in nicely with our offense.

I love the idea of Orwin Smith to be honest. runs hard and doesn't have a lot of mileage on him.

I like Lacy and or Ellington. Both are hard runners between the tackles with speed to be able to break away and would complement JQuizz

Just curious.... Did you mean Franklin from UCLA or did you mean Randle from OKST? I like both backs I'm just not sure which way you were actually going there.
