i don't think that's their plan, though.
Woodhead and Hillman are gone right? What about Oliver and McCluster? Seems like we got a bunch of average joe's behind Gordon. Something I would want to fix ASAP if I were TT...

Hillman signed with the Vikes. I wouldn't mind going for a mid to late round draft pick of a RB. One question mark is Watt. If they're not going to use him, cut him. However, I sure wish they'd use him more. Maybe with our new HC we'll see a change in philosophy.

I wonder what Oliver's status is post surgery? With what you posted, I'd cut McCluster and keep Watt... Maybe take a gamble in the 6th or sign an UDFA.

Actually, I found out Hillman signed with the Vikes, but McCluster is still a FA. His deal with the Bolts was for only one year.

yeah, a bunch of guys behind gordon that will be lucky to even make a teams roster. the fact that the chargers let both woodhead and oliver walk tells me they intend to draft a RB somewhat high.

it's not simply a want in my mind, it's a need.

Agreed. I am not thrilled at our talent level at RB. FB. HBack. TE. This draft allows ample opportunities for upgrades/greater depth there.

Again, Google and you will find comments from Anthony Lynn, regarding how much the loss of Karlos Williams negatively impacted the Bills offense. This was with Shady McCoy in tow.

I agree that finding a capable back up running back/third down back is a big need. The only problem is that you can say that with practically every position on the roster aside from QB and maybe TE.

RB gems are frequently found later in the draft, and this class is loaded. The volatility of the position and the frequency of late round gems make it a bad investment if you ask me. I can't justify spending a high pick on a RB when we can still use a starting NB, S, OG, RT, and LB.

Gordon, Farrow and Watt are under contract. Andre Williams is an exclusive rights FA and has been tendered by the Chargers. Hillman, McCluster and Woodhead were FAs not tendered by the Chargers. Oliver is a restricted FA and has not been tendered by the LAC.

How about trading down drafting McCaffrey in the 1st, and a Safety, OL, WR in the 2nd &_3 rd round, a backfield combo of MG & McCaffrey could solidify the RB position and leave us high picks to address the other positions?? With this new HC the RB position is Paramount to be filled with blue chip talent...

I think by signing Kenjon Barner, the McCaffery speculation is over
