We got it.
Not sure how you got "I hate Slaton" out of "Slaton is small and I don't want to see them run him into the ground ala Double-D".

Seventeen touches per game would come to 272 for the season....baring injury. Now that leaves how many opportunities for the beaner? With a roster which features, Andre Johnson....Kevin Walter, Owen Daniels.....there are only sixty plays per game....someone is going to be sitting and wondering where their touches went. I believe that player isn't SS. So you're going to pay the beaner how much, fifteen pick money, for how many touches per game ?
How many people wanted to bring in a free agent running back like Ward to back up, or split carries with Slaton? He would have been making more money than him. Why was that not an issue, but a draft pick making more is?

Quote:
Like it or not Steve Slaton is this teams bell cow back for '09. 270 touches....Kubiak, by his quotes, thinks he's got it in the tank. Over reaching for a power O back...in the first round...doesn't help anything.
So we're going to be a twisted ankle away from having a 4th round guy as the starter?

There's guys in the 4th with potential, but if everyone thinks they're such great, sure fire prospects then why aren't they being talked about in the first? Day two is a crap shoot. You might get a Double-D one in 6 rolls of the dice, but you're probably comming up snake eyes with Wali Lundy the other 5.

I'm just the opposite. There's really not a lot that I like about Moreno at all.

He's 2.5 inches shorter, 20 lbs lighter, doesn't run as hard, doesn't have the sick stiff arm, is slower, and lacks the same kind of quickness that Wells has.

How does Wells not fit the system? Ron Dayne fit the system.

The zone blocking scheme is about making one cut and getting up field. That's something Wells does. He also has really good cutback vision which is important in this system.

I would like a different position, but the value just isn't there. Picking a 4-3 defender means reaching on a guy 8-10 picks early. I would take a trade down over Wells, but at 15 I think he is the best pick.
