    I love Ryan Williams, but I want to fill that safety need first. Steven Ridley out of LSU and Damien Berry out of Miami look good in the later rounds.

    I agree since it seems Barber will be gone.......we need a tough yardage guy who will make the play and not turn it over.:)

    If we take a RB, I might murder someone.

    That means it won't be a RB.

    I rather have mikel leshoure he seems more of a down hill runner with power and alittle speed aka steven jackson. He can do it all.
    6 feet and about 230 his ten yard dash is 1.53 which shows burst

    he is something like mendenhall but you can get him in round 2. I think he even broke the schools rushing record (mendenhall I think went to the same school).

    He's 5'9 202 and runs the 40 in the low 4.5's. So he's neither a powerful back or a burner. He is versatile and was very productive in college. The question with him is whether his lack of size and elite speed will translate to the nfl. Personally I would stay away from him at #40.

    i would too.
    I rather have leshoure there if Garrett and Co. decide to go running back to get more physical.

    I've seen 5-9 1/2 212 on him. 84 yd run @ Miami so he still can run pretty well.

    If Dallas were to take a RB I would hope he would be a big body short yardage type runner, someone we can put out there on those 3rd and 1 or 2 and or goal line. Allen Bradford at 5'11" 242 and tough between the tackles would be a good compliment to Felix. Would not look to RB though until late in the draft

    There's only room for one starting RB...that's Felix.
    The kid from Tech would be a great short yardage and 3rd down back. He runs hard with violence for short yardage, and he has great hands and is good in the open field.

    I'd dump MBIII and let this kid fight Choice for the #2 spot.

    Why? We need a RB...maybe not in round 2, but we definitely need help in short yardage and on 3rd down.

    I don't like the idea of RB, especially since Jerry is talking about wanting his third RB to play special teams. That's just not worth a second round pick, and considering how long it took to get Felix regular carries, I can only imagine is taking 2-3 years for any RB we draft now.

    I agree, however I would look to the later rds to find that role player. A guy who can come in on short yardage or goal line who can push the pile

    speaking of allen bradford I like the video's i seen of him (youtube scouting :D ) he is big, tough, breaks tackles and looks to have some deceptive speed like brandon jacob. I think we can get him in prolly the 4th or maybe the 5th which would be great value.
