Hey guys, long time Buc fan, first time poster.
I'm hoping the Bucs select Morris Claiborne with the 5th overall pick because a top tier corner for years to come is a great thing to have in a passing league. Especially with the Talib situation still a concern. Ideally, Talib, Claiborne, and Wright are shutting down WRs for the next 5 or so years. With that said, I know the Bucs need a complimentary back for Blount, and I honestly think they can get a solid one in the 2nd or 3rd round. So I'm curious...IF the Bucs don't select T Rich...which RB would you want the Bucs to nab? Personally, I would LOVE a Quack Attack in our backfield. But I want to hear your thoughts. I've listed the next four RBs projected to come off the board after Richardson.
Lamar Miller, Miami: Explosive runner with the speed and quickness to score from anywhere on the field. There are questions about his durability but he's a great playmaker that has the ability to change a game in one play. He is also regarded as a great team player.
David Wilson, Virginia Tech: Has great burst and is perfectly suited to hit the corner and get to the outside. A bit undersized but has exceptional top-end speed. Always keeps his feet moving. Scouts are quick to note that Wilson occasionally put the ball on the ground in college.
Doug Martin, Boise State: Stout runner with sneaky quickness and natural hands. Martin is a solid all-around back with great hands. He's tough. Physical. Though he can and should do a better job protecting the ball, scouts continue to rave about his intangibles.
LaMichael James, Oregon: Very productive running back. Classified as a great change-of-pace back, LMJ is a playmaker. He has tremendous hands coming out of the backfield, but he is quite undersized and probably needs to bulk up a bit. Has had trouble with the law so there are character concerns.
Again, I just want to hear your thoughts and opinions. Cheers.
