Let me get one thing straight right out the bat, I am all for Morris Claiborne. Our defense, in my mind, is too weak and has too many holes for us to use picks on offensive players in the first three rounds. Claiborne would bolster our secondary and you can always find a scat back or valuable RB in the later rounds that would create a perfect compliment to LGB.
Now, with that out of the way, T-Rich is an amazing player and I won't throw a fit if we select him. Everyone tries to say that we would use both LGB and T-Rich as a 1-2 punch but truthfully, T-Rich would get 80% of the carries if he were to join the Bucs just because of his ability to NEVER stop and consistently make plays.
A big reason people pin T-Rich to us in the first place is because of our 30th ranked running game. What everyone chooses to avoid is the 32nd ranked rushing attempt number. People expect our rushing game to be stellar when we are giving it the least chance in the league? Really? THE PATRIOTS RAN MORE THEN US! That is sad, and is why I am ecstatic that Olsen got jettisoned.
With either player, we are looking at a instant starter and possibly a future blue chipper.
