We need a feature back no doubt but we also need openings for that back, he can't run without the blocks, so maybe this is where Hal Hunter comes into play. Where's the tape when Redman and Dwyer both had 100 yrd. games, and who was starting on that line at the time?

All this talk about the RB vs. the OL...just solidifies my thoughts that I would have no issue adding a stud OT if available at 17. If somehow Eric Fisher is there at 17 he has to be the pick. I'm not sure if I would say the same about Warmack. I'm not a fan of the extremely overweight type OL.
Lacy is a step better than Bam was, even if Bam wasn't high. Lacy has a much better ability for YACs then did Bam. Look at how many YACs Lacy has, and those have little or nothing to do with his OL. He has a nice combination of quickness, fluidity and power. Bam was more of a straight ahead pounder with little moves. Lacy had a good deal of moves and spins (not overboard spins like Mendenspin).
