Some Saints fans over value the RBs that we have.
Again, I do like Pierre, but come on man, we don't even have one the top 25.

Sproles is a specialty player.
Pierre can't handle the workload.
Ivory can't stay healthy.
Ingram has been a bust so far.


I can't begin to tell you everything wrong with what you said here.

And Lattimore will be gone in round 5. Seems like his rehab is going very well and he will be a day 2 pick!

I love Pierre, but Pierre > Lattimore is nuts. We haven't had a 1000 yard rusher since deuce. Ivory and Mike Bell only had in the 700s.

Even if we save Lattimore until 2014, he's a steal in the 5th.

Everything you just said makes drafting another RB, in the later rounds, believable.


Couple things. The Saints not having a 1k rusher has nothing to do with the quality of the backs. Any one of their backs could go for 1k if they were given the opportunity. The Saints however are a Runningback By Committee team. That means no back is really going to be given enough carries to get a ton of yardage. The other thing is Sean Payton is a throw it first coach. The Saints love to throw. Even when the Saints ranked 6th in rushing, they didn't have a RB over 1k. Lattimore wouldn't change anything.
