That's exactly why I want them to take RB in the first or second round. since Spiller won't be there and I think there's a group of backs that follow, the best course is probably for them to take the highest rated back with the 2nd round pick.
I don't want them getting cute and waiting for the perfect value in Round 3, only to see that all the RB's in the group after Spiller are gone. There's a void of talent at RB and you have to put some resources there.
