I wouldn't mind a mid round pick used on RB. We absolutely need to find a way to get rid of Stewart. He is being paid a ton and just cannot contribute. Maybe someone (Giants?) will take him for a 7th.

Williams will probably be a cap casualty, but if all was even I'd absolutely want him over Stewart. He is actually contributing, even though he came up small yesterday.

Drafting offensive line improves run blocking and pass blocking.

Runningbacks aren't a priority in the league anymore unless you're Peterson, McCoy or Forte (and a few others).

But we still need a talented RB who isn't expensive or injury prone. Look at how much Green Bay improved with Lacy.

While I agree that improving the offensive line could help our RB situation; it does not fix the cap, injury, and age issues we get with Double Trouble.

I don't see how we get rid of both unless Stewart did a restructure that was cap friendly.

Exactly. I think a 4th or 5th rounder on a RB would be fine, assuming we take care of WR/OL/DB concerns with the earlier picks and free agents.

Stewie is a great guy, but I am sick of him just eating up our cap and not even playing. The fact that he couldn't go yesterday made me pretty angry.

Nope, we need to revamp the oline then see how our runingback perform next season. Next years draft will be just as deep as this year with fantastic running backs coming out of the SEC, TJ Yeldon, Mike Davis, Jeremy Hill, and Todd Gurley are just a few.

It is absolutely a need, however the cap figures and contracts for #28 and 34 don't allow us to address the need or make a change.

I think we need to fix the OL and add a play making WR and roll with our current RBs for next year, and hopefully we can rid of them in in 2015.

There are plenty of talented RBs to be drafted 3-4. We'll see how it goes. I'd draft offensive line 1st or 2nd and I'd be fine with Tolbert, Barner plus a decent signing.

Offensive line simply helps everyone. They need to apply the same strategy they did with the defensive line to the offense this year.

The Patriots have completely shifted their offense because of their offensive line, not their runningbacks.

Again, Williams contract is not even remotely hard to get out from under. I have no idea where all this is coming from.

It's a big concern. I think we go OL early and often. No one is going to run effectively behind our OL. Also, think about the issue Cam often ran into while waiting for plays downfield. Our OL needs to be majorly converted.

What is D-Will's cap hit if we release him? Is there a cap savings or no? We are stuck with J-Stew so I hope he can be productive. I think it's time to look to the future at the RB position.

Well we are currently stuck with Double Trouble...and then we have Tolbert...and Cam...and don't forget Barner. Then add another running back in the mix...

6 guys with 5 ineffective carries each will destroy our running game. Right now we are stuck with what we have. We should play out the year and hope to draft a suitable replacement that can carry the load in 2015.
