Editor's Note - Here's a good article discussing one player who could challenge RB Ryan Grant.
He isn't a star running back by any means but I definitely think he could a successful starting running back. He has just been released by the Broncos' probably due to the fact that they just drafted Moreno and that they have a ridiculous number of RB's on their roster.
I think Grant is a good RB and think he should definitely be our starter. He is a north south runner who hits the hole hard and can break some tackles and make some things happen. We bring Jackson in as our 3rd down back, and he is alright but generally 3rd down backs are faster guys who are good receiving and I think Jackson lacks a little in the speed department.
What would everyone think about signing Young to possibly be our 3rd down back? He has good hands, good speed, and he is elusive, which is something I personally feel Jackson or Grant don't provide. He also could come in and run some of the sweeps and stretches we run. As Grant seems to be better when we are in the I-Form and the 2 FB formation we run.
Just a thought. Please share your opinions.
