Dear god why do people always get such a thing for RB's? The most fungible spot in the NFL next to guards and you want to go top 5 pick. You think Richardson changes one aspect of that score today? No thanks, ask AP how much he helped his team, or MJD helped his. Elite RB <> success in the modern NFL.

Hey we can say that Raheem successfully led the Buce to the 5th pick in the 2012 draft. Put that on your resume Raheem

It's going to be Claiborne, Kalil, Blackmon, Richardson, or trade down.

i think a RB that hits the hole hard, and is a 3 down back would tremendously help this team.  didnt earnest graham have our best running day of the season the game he started?

i do tend to agree that 1st round RB's are not wise...but it is easy to become enamored with richardson.  i could get behind the idea of drafting richardson and say osemele and picking up a FA like nicks.

with some new coordinators we could have a SF turnaround.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

So basically a RB as slow and untalented as Graham had our best day and you want to spend a high pick on a guy to do what you admit a undrafted hybrid FB/RB can do? Don't get it.

Trying to "win" the running game isn't the route to success in the NFL anymore. Name all the great RB's heading to the playoffs this year?  We need help but not elite help.

And an OT or CB will?

Hasn't the bust rate for highly drafted OT's been through the roof lately?

It really all boils down to QB play.

Only way I want Richardson is if we take care of some other holes in free agency first. Richardson may be the bpa at 5. If that is the case, you have to take care of the other top position of need in free agency.

i dont think an undrafted hybrid FB/RB can do what richardson can do.   i think we should take BPA. 

i understand the that the NFL is a passing league, but thats not the only way to win.    if we want to pass it accurately 50x a game, we might as well trade freeman now.

They're gonna help more than the RB.  We have an RB that can run the ball when we're not down 42 points in the first half. Richardson isn't going to be that much better a runner than Blount so you are "buying" him to upgrade your RB receptions and that is about it.

The best ground and pound team recently (NYJ) had Shone Greene who no one will compare to an all star and an aging LT. That's not great RB play going on. It was determined running calls. Look at the Saints taking the Heisman and he's not just a committee member....think they got value from that trade?

RB used to be a high value spot. i argued like hades for Caddy for example but the league has turned so far so fast that the RB value is just almost gone.

The Bucs offense is no way near one player away but we need to add some impact playmakers.  Richardson or Blackmon would just be a piece.  In a perfect world we could add a player like Vincent Jackson in FA and Richardson or Kahil in the draft and then continue to build from there.  The Bucs have a ton of work to do to rebuild this roster and dump a lot of garbage

I'm starting to agree with the offense draft strategy. As long as you fix up that oline and lbs too. Claiborne is a nice pick too. I just agree with the guys saying that offense is what its all about right now. Look at all the top teams. They have great offenses. Our defense would be a lot better if we just got that lb position improved. So I'm thinking you get the bpa at 5. It will most likely be Blackmon or Richardson.

completely disagree.  i think richardson will be a much better football player whereas blount is still only a runner.  blount is great for highlight reels, but he doesnt move the chains.

i thought the saints were idiotic going after ingram.  ivory and thomas are underrated imo, and similar backs i believe.
