    Well we know we need a RB, mostly likely our 1st round pick next year will be a RB. I looked through a lot of the teams for young but good guys, I just want to know what you guys think, how would this players do in GB.

    Ryan Motes
    Chris Perry
    Michel Turner
    Marion Barber

    RBs are pretty easy to find you really dont even have to get 1 in the first round i wish we would have got Brian Calhoun, but that didnt happen because the gay lions were a pick ahead of where we were going to take him.

    You just never know. It isn't real often a Reggie Bush comes along. He looked pretty good in his first game.
    I don't know anything about the guys you mentioned, so i really can't say who would or would not be good.

    Same here, I was wishing for Calhoun too, patiently waiting for that pick and right before the damn Lions had to step in and take him. Pissed me right off.

    I like Calhoun too..........the thing is, none of us even know if the Packers would have picked him had he still been available.

    I'm high on Perry. I think Perry can be a great starter in this league and run for a lot of yards. Barber might not be a good fit here but he's a good back who can get you the tough yards. Turner I think can be a solid fit and would do well. I also see him as a future starter in this league.

    Ryan Moats isn't well known probably because he played at La Tech in college but did well for filling in for Brian Westbrook last year. I don't see him as a true starter in this league. More of a change of pace back.

    I thought Barber looked pretty good when I saw him play.

    I don't think Barber is an option simply because Parcells likes him, maybe a little better than Julius Jones. Moats had been in Reid's doghouse for a while but is really only a Westbrook injury away from starting again. I have only heard good things about Perry, both running and receiving.

    Out of those 4 I like Turner. He's got good speed and would be more well known if he wasn't behind Tomlinson

    Maybe we'll suck again next year so we can get Steve Slaton :lol:

    Actually, I don't feel having a star HB is needed to win. If you have a good line and a good scheme, anyone can run for 1000 yards and 10 TDs. Denver proved that. I'm more concerned with finding upgrades over Manuel and Poppinga. I'd also like to see an athletic TE and another WR, and of course improvment at the Guards. HB is about 7th on my list.

    ^ Slayton might be a little undersize in the NFL and might end up being a 3rd down back in the NFL. He needs to bulk up.

    I'd like to see Turner or Perry brought in at RB over Peterson. Don't get me wrong Peterson is great but I rather have Calvin Johnson who I think is the next Terrell Owens minus the attitude.

    Ricky Williams (i'm serious, he could chaeffeur K-Rob next year!)

    Leonard (Rutgers) isn't bad.

    I think Perry would be the best fit in Green Bay although I doubt Cincy would let him go for anything cheap. His best attributes are out of the backfield as a receiver which would fit perfectly in Green Bay's scheme. I hope Cincy does let him go since I feel bad for him being stuck behind Rudi Johnson.

    If Micheal Bush (Louisville) comes thru his broken leg 100%, I want him...also Tony Hunt of Penn State is a bruising back with some burst, reminds me of Larry Johnson, and is climbing up some scouts' boards

    I like Bush as well. Right now pending his health he could take a shirt and play at Louisville another year or he could enter. I don't see him slipping much though. Maybe early 2nd if he's not healthy but that's as far as he would fall.
