    i like the idea of going rb fairly early. we need a 1-B guy

    I think you guys are selling Samuels short. Remember, we had a poster in here who said last year at this time that Conner was only a backup. Period. Now Conner’s a pro bowl runningback. Let’s see Samuels now after he’s had a chance to be in our strength and conditioning program, drop a little weight, etc. etc.

    I’m all for adding depth but to think we need a 1b runningback is a little premature.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (8 years after Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    We need another RB. Conner started off hot but faded vs good defenses.

    He averaged 53 yards a game the last 5 games. Not sure his style of running is good for a full season.

    I don't believe this to be true. The offensive Coordinator stopped running the ball. First and goal, at Denver's 2 yard line and Conner didn't get a carry. That's not Conner's fault. If Conner gets 20 attempts, he's fine IMO.

    im not selling Samuels short. In fact i see it is a compliment to him and his versatility if we draft another RB. He can play TE.. slot.. FB....TB.. i would expect to see him on the field in packages with Conner and/or our other RB.

    if we pencil him in as our #2.. i believe it somewhat limits the other things he can be used for to creates mismatches

    Okay...your trying to leave Samuels fresh and open to be able to do more things. Got it.

    RB is one position in this draft that we can get an immediate impact player for cheap. We need to take advantage of that IMO

    Yeah..but this RB class isn't that great is it? Then again, you really don't have to be for what we need from it.

    I would like a Eric Pegram, more modern day, Tarik Cohen/ Darren Sproles type change of pace scatback type, to be our THIRD RB...

    Those types are easier to pick up because teams our afraid to use those " smaller " types as backups...

    But, We already have Samuels as our backup...So we may be able to get the best, or one of the best, of THESE TYPE of RB's...And even better....Can probably still get them with a later round pick
