Leonard is a 30 year old camp body brought in because Schiano was his college coach. He won't make the final 53 and doesn't even factor in.

I disagree. I think he makes the roster as the #3 back. Blount will be traded, so that will leave us with Martin - Rookie - Leonard.

I don't disagree with your assessment of Leonard's talent and upside, but you could have said the same thing about Ware and he stayed on the roster all season. If Leonard gets cut, which running backs do you see making the final 53?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

I think some are putting too much stock in the Leonard signing.  IIRC, he was signed to the vet minimum.  Far from a lock to make the team.

I would think that their ideal situation is they get the/a RB in the daft that they really like to be Dougie's #2.  Either guy can and would be the third down back.

I dunno. A rookie for sure. Maybe two. Or maybe we sign a FA running back after the draft. If Bradshaw's foot ever heals, he would be a great pick up.

That's exactly how I see it.

I think the eventual roster at RB will break down like...

Doug
Rookie
Michael Smith (as much as some may disagree/dislike)

I'm in Los Angeles, if we have the opportunity to draft the RB Franklin out of UCLA we should hop on this guy. Not spectacular combine number but he is a work horse, never fumbles, extremely intellegent and can catch the ball out of the backfield

Hmmm, think some of you domers need to back away from the crack pipe.
Leonard was brought in as blitz protection and a situational receiver.
Beyond Martin, who else has demonstrated the consistent ability to block and catch in the NFL?
Not Blount, not Smith.
If Leonard goes, it's because Blount and Smith are gone first and we have two better guys on the roster.

Good RB's slip every year.

Exactly. If I were a GM I am drafting a RB every year in rounds 4-7.


Do we really need another Najee Goode? (the answer is no)

Purdue RB Akeem Shavers has seen interest from the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears. Shavers could sneak into the late stages of Day 3 of the draft.

Guarantee ya we take a RB.

Question is - which round do we go after one?  With a pair of 4ths & a pair of 6ths, Dom & co. are in a position to be very patient as the guys who slide become revealed.

I think if Monte Ball or Stepfan Taylor is there at the end of the 2nd/early 3rd....we have to think about going after them. With one of those two paired with Martin we'd have a backfield comparable to the Texans. For a run first team, that is big. Especially late in the season and into the post season.

Other than those two, there is a plethora of solid RBs that will be available in the later part of this draft. They aren't special like Ball or Taylor, but we should be able to get a solid upgrade over what we have in the 5th or 6th round.

Love Taylor!!!
