Same here, basically. I'll qualify it with, if Adams and Smallwood aren't fighting each other for their lives in training camp, Howie failed.

The top two running backs in this RBC better not be on this team right now.

I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO HOOK THE SLED TO ADAMS THIS YEAR. HAVE HIM DO THE HEAVY WORK, GIVE ME MOST OF THE CARRIES. I'D GIVE THE KID A CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF, DRAUGHT A YOUNGIN.

SMALLWOOD HAD A GOOD SECOND HALF OF SEASON, BUT I DON'T THINK HE'S THEIR GUY.

I don’t disagree on that last point, but Smallwood was twice the player Adams was. He’s one of those “looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane” players.

Meh - neither was Ajayi when they acquired him. I like Howard, but the price has to be pretty low.

Both of these - Ajayi has way more Yards after Contact than Coleman (who was actually very bad doing that). Ajayi isn't elite, but he's in the very good tier when healthy. If the price is right, you have to like him. Try to draft the Kamara to his Ingram.

My guess is maybe Ajayi has some sort of offer in hand and was told to do better elsewhere and bring it back. Although, the Colts have some familiarity with him, but I don't see where they have an ideal number of carries for him with Mack and Hines.

A healthy Corey Clement is as good as Tevin Coleman.

Does this make Matt Breida available? I'm going to go out on a limb and say Howie makes a run at him. He's gotta be the odd man out now.

That would be a good pickup IMO.

McKinnon , Coleman and Mostert (the Special Teams/RB) makes him somewhat expendable, correct? I'm checking depth charts because I get this weird feeling Howie has something like this in mind. If he chooses the wrong guy in the draft, he needs to have a very solid Plan B. That player is not on this roster.

I thought they liked Breida but I don't understand adding Coleman if they plan to give him any meaningful role. Maybe they are using a committee too.

I like Crowell too. Would like to keep Ajayi if possible.

Shanahan may carry four backs since McKinnon and Breida are both coming off injuries. If not, Howie should kick the tires.

Of the remaining running backs left, Crowell would be my first choice.

Ajayi has me nervous because he's coming off a serious injury and he's a physical back with a chronic knee condition.

It appears this running back draft class may be weaker than previous classes and I don't trust them to get the right guy. As a result, Crowell may be the safest pick.

All I know is that I don't want to see anything that resembles last year's backfield.

Exactly. Either you or someone else said it - what we were missing last year was that guaranteed 3 - 4 yards on first down that we had with Blount/Ajayi. Don't need anything crazy given our skill players at WR/TE, but someone who is reliable.

Eagles & 49ers talking trade. No specifics yet. They need a wr pretty bad.

Mostert just signed a three-year deal with the Niners.

Think you're right that either breida or mckinnon will be traded. Can't imagine them keeping all those rb's and trusting jordan matthews as their wr.

They wont sign any RBs who were free agents. its pretty clear by now that they are trying to amass as many conditional draft picks from this free agent class as possible. that means they can only sign free agents from their team (like darby) or players who were cut by other teams before their contracts expired (like Desean).

Therefore a trade for McKinnon makes sense here.

you were referring to Malik Jackson being cut by Jacksonville and then signed, not Desean. They traded for Desean, then signed him to a new contract.

Overall, I agree with your take on the new philosophy:

- Keep your first and second round picks
- Be willing to move picks to acquire players (especially picks in rounds 3-5 for good players: Bennett, Ajayi) Note: McKinnon has a large cap number and is coming off the ACL
- Monitor the comp pick action, and gather up some additional picks in rounds 3-6
- Don't sign other teams' free agents if possible
