    Where are the best places he could land? Where are the worst?

    Teams that might need rbs—KC, HOU, PHI, BALT, OAK, NYJ, JAC...?

    Houston, Kansas City, Jacksonville, Baltimore all don't need to spend a early draft pick on a RB. I havnt taken time to think about teams that need one but those teams don't

  • Second person to mention Houston. They have Foreman and Miller. Am I missing something? I dont see Texans needing to spend a top draft pick on a RB

    Considering most backs will go the 40-80 range is it really spending all that much? Plus, if it’s an elite back, I would if I’m the coach.

    You have two good running backs... I don't see Houston NEEDING a running back though to be listed as a team that needs a RB.

  • I agree, I don’t see Houston drafting an RB before the 3rd round.

    Well, honestly that all depends on how you view the RB you may be passing on. Adrian Peterson was passed on by 6 teams in the 2007 NFL Draft, some teams thinking "we have a good back or two"... NOt saying you're wrong @Doobie_Snacks , just that if you thought a guy in this draft was the next Zeke or AP, a good back like Miller and injury prone Foreman are irrelevant. So, to me, I'm taking it that you don't like these backs in 2019? If so, you aren't wrong or right, all opinions are awesome... but I think you're arguing a point from a different angle is all. If I'm any team other than the teams that have the top 7 ish RBs in the NFL, I take the best running back in the draft class in round 2 without hesitation. Like it's not even close.

    We were listing teams that need a RB. You put Houston on that list? I'm not saying the Texans have their franchise RB and couldn't use an improvement and draft one. I actually think they will draft a RB this year. This years class is deep. I just don't consider them a team that should be listed as "need" at the RB position. Want? Yes. Need? No. They have bigger issues like the offensive line. I'd list that as a "need" for the Texans. They allowed 62 sacks.

    Obviously if Texans think someone is the next AP you don't pass them up.


    Edit to add what I consider Texans bigger issues are.

    Offensive tackle, Interior offense line, safety, cornerback, tight end and edge rusher depending what happens with Clowney.

    I'd seen a few people say that HOU isn't in love with Miller. If Singletary is going to be EE, or Barkley, you take him. I didn't list CHI, but who knows what they will be like next year, keeping Cohen AND Howard? Scheme fit? Who knows.

    @Smitty

    I'd also like to add my comments are in regards to the topic of Devin Singletary as the #1 rookie running back and someone asking the landing spot for him. I can't see the first RB off the board falling to Texans at #54 and Texans are crazy not to address other needs like O line in the 1st round unless they feel he is the next AP and he is available to them in the 1st round. Perhaps some confusion in what you thought I was talking about.

    I never did answer what could be the best or worst landing spots. I just started talking about the teams that might draft the #1 RB. I don't see any of these teams landing the top RB and the best spots don't neccesserly need a RB. I just like what the top RB would add to the teams listed

    Best spots: Kansas City, Indianapolis, Green Bay, Chicago
    Worst spots: Any team with franchise RB like Giants, Rams, Dallas, Carolina

    Prediction: Eagles draft the first RB off the board

    Seriously, after all that you are gonna put KC whom has their 2019 starting playing like a beast right now pn your list, and Chi who has a two headed monster combo in the clubhouse right now as well? Both of those teams are in far better RB situations than Houston - far better.


    Desperate RB needy teams:
    Eagles, Indy, NYJ, Bills, Ravens, Raiders, Redskins (unless you like a 34 year old primary RB), TB (looks like they whiffed in 2018 draft), SF (can't keep a RB healthy past 2-3 games, that is a problem....)

    Maybe looking for replacement RB teams:
    maybe Green Bay (but they have a serviceable RBBC), Houston ( both their RBs are not reliable, Miller is aging with miles and Foreman is always hurt), ATL (Coleman will be gone and Freeman keeps getting banged up, they;ll be looking for depth and are a going to be better on O in 2019 IMO)

    REAL TRUTH - I do not see one team taking a RB in round 1 this year, I see about 6-8 of them taking round 2-3 RBs and using them as starters and committee lead dogs though. I just listed 11 teams off the top of my head and prob missed one or two with contract RBs leaving...

    I like Marlon Mack in Indy...not sure they need a RB and Redskins have Guice returning from ACL to consider.

    Guice had infections and his knee is not healing right... Bad bad sign, do not get surgery in Washington, its like the third time a staff infection hit a player post surgery...
    I could see the Mack taking that job, thought he would 2 years back, maybe hes a late bloomer

    I could be wrong, but I feel like he's already taken that mantle. Not saying the Colts WONT draft a RB, but I think they're confident in what they have in Mack.

    Did you not read what I said? This is a list of BEST landing spots but not necessarily teams that need a RB. Just a landing a spot that I think would have been interesting to see the best RB land. I clearly said I don't see him going to any of these teams

    @Hawk12
    I spent many post earlier yesterday talking about teams that need a RB and took teams like KC out of the list. Obviously I don't see KC, Indianapolis, Green Bay, or Chicago NEEDING a RB. I thought I made that clear in my post. That was just a list of hypothetical "best" spots not logical spots. I spent enough time already limiting my teams down to the ones the "need" a RB that I went back and answered hypthicatl best and worst landing spots. Clearly I don't see the #1 RB going to Giants, Rams, Dallas, Carolina either but I listed as WORST spots.

    Agree...
  • @Hawk12

    I agree teams like Eagles, Bills, Jets, Raiders are teams that NEED a RB and are the ones likely to take the first RB off the board. You seriously misread my msgs :)

    His lateral agility is off the charts. Watching him start and stop in traffic is unreal. Over 1000 of his 1300 rushing yards came after first touch. He just looks the part..I have only two real concerns... One is his size.. Not horrible but 5 ft 9 200 lbs doesn't scream 250plus carry back.. But he does play bigger then his size.... My bigger concern is that watching his highlights he looked video game good but against university of Buffalo... North Texas and Akron... How would he look against Alabama?

    Sounds like you’ll have to choose from some other RBs.
