Why are so many people clamoring for us to take Ingram with our first round pick? We have a starting RB in Best and also have some solid back ups. In the NFL, the RB position has undergone a major change in the past 10 years. You don't need a Stud RB anymore. The game is more about passing and exploiting match ups or using shifty runners as receivers. We have a change of pace/speed back in Best and north-south pounders with Smith/Morris/Felton. Getting a vet through free agency would also be a better decision than taking one in the first round. They will be cheaper and we will know exactly what we are getting.
Plus, burning a first rounder for a RB is foolish since the shelf life of RBs are about 6 years now. Since we already used a first round pick on Best, we shouldn't invest another high draft pick for a guy who will be around for only two contracts. I'd rather we focus on the best player available, though on the defensive side of the ball. I'd settle for the Offensive Line as well, though I also feel that this spot can be had in later rounds as well.
Taking another RB in the first is just wasteful and for people who only like watching college RB highlight reels. Didn't we go bonkers when Millen kept taking WRs with our first picks? Yet now some of you want to do this with RBs? Nuts.
