There is no secret. I want the Bucs to draft Trent Richardson. But this isnt a fanpost trying to convince you on why we should draft him. I had to make this a fanpost because I feel this is a good point and many of you may have missed it. I know alot of you that are opposed to Richardson and are for Claiborne and I get that. But some say that we don't need to get a running back that high, or that we can get a running back in the lower rounds or undrafted.
So lets say Polk or James in the draft are available in the 2nd or third round for example (which many of you feel are good alternatives at running back instead of drafting Richardson at 5. Why are we even drafting them that high if the logic is that you can find good running backs off the street? Why are we wasting a 2nd or third round pick on drafting polk or james? Why dont we use that pick for another hole to fill on defense and get a running back off the street?
Please let me know what you think.
