    (My options were to long to be in a poll haha)

    Would you rather...


    Draft David DeCastro in round 1 to replace Lilja at LG, and look to fill RT via Free Agency?

    Draft David DeCastro in round 1 to replace Lilja at LG, and a RT in rounds 2-3?

    Draft Jonathan Martin or Riely Reiff round 1 to fill RT, keep Lilja at LG for another year, draft developmental OG like we did with Asamoah?

    Draft Jonathan Martin or Riely Reiff in round 1 to fill RT, and draft an interior lineman rounds 2-3 to replace Lilja?

    Draft Jonathan Martin or Riely Reiff in round 1 to fill RT, and fill LG via Free agency (such as Carl Nicks or Ben Grubbs) to replace Lilja?

    Draft Trent Richardson round 1, we will have the best run game in the NFL with him and Charles no matter who our line would be... Address RT in round 2, leave Lilja at LG, and a developmental interior lineman rounds 4-6?

    Draft Trent Richardson round 1, Address RT in round 2, replace Lilja via FA (Grubbs or Nicks)?

    If we picked up a good LG in free agency, then I would be all for grabbing Richardson if he was sitting there, and then get a RT in the 2nd round. But otherwise, I feel we should address OL before RB. Plus, if Richardson is there when we pick, there may be some people looking to trade with us to grab him.

    They drafted him to be a ROT because they wanted to protect the blind side of their left-handed QB.

    Not that I was saying that Brown was a better football player, but, IF JC had not been injured in 2011, and looked equal to what he did in 2010, yes, I would get Brown over Peterson.

    HBs just don't tend to last that long in The NFL, and Peterson has been starting to show signs of aging, including what happened to him in 2011.

    If it were not for the availability of ROTs, and our raised need for a HB, I would definitely take Brown over a HB.

    That always works out so well.

    It's the first priority of all "skill position" players to make enemies of your blockers. Just check the success rate of Larry Johnson since deciding to slam into his blockers' backs.

    What a lineman learns from that is to get out of Mr. Toughguy's way and let him slam into a defender instead of his own back.

    Getting hit with cheap shots in the kidneys does not improve anybody's skill level.

    Even if Charles was healthy this year, I would still think the need for a between the tackles runner would be about the same....Fact is Thomas Jones is wearing down fast, and we need someone to take his place, so this has nothing to do with the idea that JC was out this year...Plus I want JC to be around for awhile, and another workhorse RB will help keep in around by taking some of the load off of him.

    Actually....In high school I was an RB, and had a similar situation during practice where on of the reserve OG's was getting some reps, and he was going against one of our best DT's.. About 3 plays in a row I got hammered in the backfield as I was taking the hand-off because he blew his blocks. I got so pissed I chucked the ball at him and yelled at him to block somebody because I was tired of getting my a** slammed every time I was handed the ball. My coach then ran the same play with him as the RB, and no OG...He got plowed over, and believe me, he didn't miss a block the rest of the afternoon...

    It is not the need of a between-the-tackles RB that raises Peterson's value for me. It is the need of a premier HB, due to the questions surrounding ours. Hence why JCs injury is a big factor... to me.

    If not for the raised injury risk for Charles, I would be looking for a complimentary big back, not a high dollar premier back.

    Lol.

    There is always some incredible story for an unreal notion, isn't there?

    We are talking NFL players who have been in the position for years. You are no longer going to get some hidden player out of those guys by trying to beat it out of them.

    Some high school back up has very little experience, and probably hasn't reached down within himself to find the best football player he can be. There is probably something in him that he hasn't found yet.

    If you have inferior blockers (at the pro level) you are not going to turn them into superior blockers by being a d**k to them. You can turn them into enemies though.

    Again, I refer you to LJ.
