    Default Do the Steelers need a speed back in the running game?

    I think the running game could do with speedy back for certain circumstances although I can't see them using a high or medium pick on another RB. Mendy has done well as the workhorse and Redman is a good short yardage man. I'd like to see a RB with elite speed back in the fold.

    Heres a guy I was looking at. He's got a 4.34 40 dash time.

    I'm sure the Steelers are familiar with Devine. I question his size and durability, he's definately not an "every down" back. But if he can catch and he's still around in the late rounds... who knows? He might make a nice replacement for M.M.

    I think the Steelers should skip running backs altogether this year, unless a gem falls into their hands.There is much need at other positions, same with QB.

    Devine has the speed, incredible acceleration, but definitely injury prone......I agree with Crossbones...I think we should concentrate on the OL, DL & DBs in that order........
