Re: Position Breakdown: Running Back

Overall, even with the potential/probable loss of Bell, this group is very solid. Still would like for the Saints to find a guy who can do 25 carries per game, not saying he would but just need someone who can. This current group lacks some stamina.

Re: Position Breakdown: Running Back

I have to agree on drafting a powerback somewhere in the draft. After watching Beanie Wells have such a good rookie season last year, I wouldn't really be too upset, if we took a RB in the first round. First downs keep the defense off the field, and there were a few times last season, where having a hard hitting short yardage back in there would have helped. I might just still be missing Deuce though.

I read what you're writing; I'm not that impressed with Wells and yet I acknowledge he still had a quality, productive season in that offense...

So should our power backs (RB's not named Reggie Bush) be producing more in the Drew Brees-led offense?
