    Trent Richardson.

    I know the chances are slim but if he were sitting there at 14 do you take him?

    I think I would and I know we all like what Demarco has to offer but Richardson would truly give this team a lethal 1-2 punch at RB and would replace Felix day one. But at the same time there are alot of holes on D that need to be filled and RB isn't exactly a position of need.

    No i dont think so. Way to many holes to fill to even think about it.

    I think the transition from running back to safety would be pretty difficult for Richardson.

    I would love to have the chance to draft him and have someone make me an offer I can't refuse.

    That's the way to look at it, IMO. Agreed.

    yes. Yes. YES.

    A thousand times, yes.

    Run the card up with his name on it. You just added a special talent to your roster. You won't care about what the current needs were in 2012 when you watch this guy's career.

    I'm leaning this way as well. If he's there at 14 I'm sure he will be BPA and if you are truly drafting drafting by your board he's the guy you pick.

    Maybe I was feeling nostalgic but watching his highlights made me think of Emmitt.

    Lol. There is the kid from ND that may be available in RD 2, but I think Poole gives the Cowboys the flexibility to pick BPA. No matter who is sitting there.

    He's the closest thing I've seen to Emmitt since the man himself.

    The thing about this, bro....it could actually happen. He actually could be there with the way backs tend to slide.

    At that point I throw all my draft notes out the window and pray for Richardson.

    First, Trent Richardson will probably not get passed the Rams. Jeff Fisher values the RB position. The Chiefs would probably jump all over him, because he would be a perfect complement to Jammal Charles (coming off a knee injury). The Chiefs love SEC players, and they are a running team.

    Second, there are only 6 elite players in the draft, and Richardson should not be falling in a weak top 10. If the Browns or Bucs or Rams all passed on him for some stupid reason, someone will either trade up for him, or the Chiefs will stop his fall. I don't see the Browns, Bucs, and Rams all passing on Richardson, especially when there is a drop-off after the 6 elite players.

    I think there are 3 elite players. Luck, Kalil and Richardson.

    1) he is from the same city as emmitt smith.

    2) he will never be available for us at #14. NEVER.

    i would pull the trigger. Would turn us to a physical team on offense. Could be a need with murray and felix injury problems.

    Don't like addressing a position where the talent is already there, but I also don't like passing on a top 10 player who slips, no matter the position.

    I've always believed the draft is where you get the best player available (if there's a clear BPA), while FA is where you fill your needs. Richardson would definitely be a BPA pick.
