    I liked Bell weeks ago when I posted my picks, but I have him in the fourth might have to move him up to three. He's a different type of back than what we are use to see teams drafting.
    He could be a combination of Franco Harris and Marcus Allen, lets get him Pittsburgh!

    Oh look... A whole bunch of Redman/Dwyer/Bettis types.

    The Steelers already have the big bruising back, what they don't have is the Todd Haley-style pass catching, explosive RB.

    They do? They have a plodding back in Redman and a back who needs to trot off to the sidelines after 2 runs in Dwyer. Who is the big bruising back you mention? Not only is Bell big, but is is agile and fast - not merely some big guy who only can plod straight ahead. Did you look at the video of this guy?

    I was big on Redman at the beginning of last season, but he was a total disappointment. We need a RB. Mendenhall is soft and Redman is average. We need people who can extend the chains and find the end zone.

    I wouldn't mind seeing us get a RB on day 2.

    I guess I should have said.......Mendenhall was soft.

Willis McGahee and Frank Gore were able to come back to have solid pro careers following gruesome knee injuries in college, and we all saw what Peterson did this season.

    And Todd McShay is awful. Kiper is a joke anymore, and I'm convinced that ESPN hired McShay solely to make the overrated Kiper look better. ESPN can have their goofy spray tan and their Eddie Munster haircut during the draft...I'll be tuned in to NFL Network to watch Mayock instead.
    The problem with Lattimore isn't that he's had one devastating knee injury. It is that he's had two in three years.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    And you're not going to get that in this draft. I'm fine with taking a flyer on Lattimore in the mid-rounds, otherwise, I'll pass on the other RB's.

    In just a couple of minutes I saw this to. How did he do against the Irish? Seems to be a natural instinctive runner that either you have or don't. Is he a high character guy also?

    I fall in love with these promo vids way too easy.

    Agreed. shades of Spindenhall in some of those clips.... but as others have said, this year's RB crop blows, so gotta take a shot in the late rounds.
