And all evidence so far is they will do it with a back. So my Question to your question is what if Steve Slaton is not on line by September ? Then what ? What we know for a fact that at sixteen touches a game Steve Slaton broke down in 2009. I mean I'm with you in one respect. I do what I have to do to get Iupati and shore up the rushing attack. That's should be priority one. Only so many Houdini third and longs Matt has in the tank, then we're going to pay a heavy price. Matt goes down, won't matter who the CBs are or the Rb or the DT is. We're toast.
I would draft Mathews in the 1st.
Asamoah would be a great pick in the 2nd but I would take the best DB in the 2nd. Because there isn't much difference between Asamoah and Newhouse. Who should be available in the 3rd.
You've fixed the OL (finally) added your work horse RB and upgraded the CB (Dunta) position. IMHO
