If Darius Guice is there at 27 you can not pass him up. This is another Deuce McCalister type dude. He just way outproduced Deuce in college. Heck he outplayed Leonard Fournette in college. IF DARIUS GUICE IS AVAILABLE AT 27 PICK HIM! We picked Deuce at I think 22 when we had Ricky Williams coming off like a 1500 yd rushing season and can we agree Deuce was a good pick?

I agree with your reasoning.

See last year we had Ingram and Peterson...
We make some trades and draft a RB... Kamara.

And we all know how that turned out. You stay true to the board and draft BPA needs be damned.

Just don't see the need to ever take a RB in the first round - ever...

This is a West Coast passing league now - QBs, CBs, DEs, OL are the premium positions now...

Kamara, as great as he was, fell to the third round before we traded back into the draft...

But, for the record, Kareem Hunt was still on the board when we took Anzalone...

in the scenario I would 100% trade back

with only 1 pick in the top 90 we need someone who will see the field

If Mayfield somehow fell, I think you pull the trigger; we wouldn't have to change our offense to slide him in once Drew is done...

But totally agree, we still need front seven help on defense, interior offensive line with those Day 1 and 2 picks...

The past few years have shown us the importance of a dominant running game. Guice would be a steal at 27. If the right offer doesn’t show up I say you have to draft him. He is a game changer and from Louisiana. No doubt we are stacked but could you imagine Guice and AK for the next 3-5 years....
