And there are only so many in the pile that can do what LT can do.
You can only run Jacob Hester on traps so many times....swing him out so many times to catch the ball in the flats before the d-coordinators will catch up with him. He's a nice cange of pace guy....he's no bell cow back who can throw his team on his shoulders and carry the Bolts to the big dance. No way.
Tell me why the Chargers have to pick a RB with their first round pick? They have Tomlinson, Sproles & Hester (who was picked before Slaton). They can take a good RB in the 3rd or 4th round if they wanted one. I personally like the Tyson Jackson pick more than I would of a 2nd or 3rd string RB for them, jmo.
