In Response to Re: CJ Spiller
[QUOTE]In Response to CJ Spiller : If they are drafting an RB, I want them to draft an every down back, not a 3rd down back. On top of rusing and catching, tha tback needs to be able to block well occasionally. Does Spiller still fit (I don't see him)? ZBell, for this reason I don't like McCluster. He'd be run over by the pass rush (unless he chops illegally).

He can chip in to be sure.
But to be clear. I don't expect NE to get a realistic shot at Spiller. And Spiller is in a different class than McCluster because he is almost as fast, but larger.
When I see McCluster, I think about how NE was thinking about taking Harvin last season. He can be a weapon on different fronts.
And he is cheap.
Dwyer is another good option, although he is different than the others.
Charles Scott could be had cheap too, and is a FB/TB tweener.
But NE won't be getting shots at Spiller. I would love it if they did, but they won't. So when threads like this start, I like to propose sensible alternatives.
Suh, Cody, Spiller, barring any injuries, terrible combines, or criminal incidents aren't even in their range.
