So it seems a mixed bag tonight of starting QB playing. Brady and Ryan played. Looks like can newton hurt his foot already in his first game back. There is a bad field in Canada so the packers sat everyone.
You are right. Most of the posters here don't want anything to do with drafting a RB in the 1st. Just like a large number wanted nothing to do with drafting a center or guard in the 1st. Rd. either. And we know how that turned out. But I digress. I have been a fan of drafting a RB high for quite a few years now. I was even hoping for Josh Jacobs last year but Oakland swept in and took care of that. Even the Patriots drafted a RB in the 1st. Rd. recently. So that approach would be my first choice. There are a lot of good RB's coming out this year so hopefully Ballard pulls the trigger early and get one. If Zeke became available, which I don't think he will, I would give up a high pick. The big difference is he's a proven durable difference maker and still has played only three years in the league. And I don't see the Colts running him into the ground with Luck as the QB. Our offense would be more balanced. A rookie RB would still need to prove themselves so they are still an unknown. Cheaper but still an unknown. Any high pick we give up has a good chance of being at the back of the draft anyway if we have a good year. Adding Zeke would increase that likelihood even more. I'm pulling for Mack like everybody else here. I'm just not sold he's a 100% feature back. We shall see.
