    Brandon Jacobs

    I just read an article on NFL.com that mentioned Jacob's having been released by the niners just prior to the post season, I didn't even know he was a member of their team. Does anyone think there would be any value in bringing in a player like this to ease the load on McFadden? They mentioned he came off an injury but is healthy now and is looking to play again in 2013 and as McFadden is injury prone bringing in a bruiser like Jacobs could help to keep DMAC healthy.

    If you want a big back I would rather go after LeGarrette Blount, younger and believe it or not less drama. I believe Jacobs best days are behind him.

    No to Jacobs, get Blount or get a physical RB in the 6th.

    I think he's going in the 2-3rd round..I would like Monte, but I think we could get an alternative RB like him later in the rounds and focus on defense/o-line for our first few picks in the draft. Stefan Taylor might fall in the 4th, I'd like to get a guy like him.

    No thank you on Brandon Jacobs. There are quite a few free agent RB's that are likely to be available. Some may get resigned, but you can consider:

    Peyton Hillis
    Felix Jones
    Shonn Greene
    Reggie Bush
    Rashard Mendenhall
    Cedric Benson
    Danny Woodhead
    LeGarrette Blount RFA
    Ronnie Brown
    Tashard Choice
    Jonathan Dwyer RFA
    Ryan Grant
    Chris Ivory RFA
    Steven Jackson
    Chris Rainey
    LaRod Stephens-Howling

    ^ That's a lot of RB options. Not everyone fits what we likely want, but certainly just about any fan here can pick at least 2-3 off that list that they feel could benefit us. There are options.

    This is blood for blood and by the gallons. These are the old days man, the bad days, the all-or-nothing days. They're back! There's no choices left. And I'm ready for war.

    Jacobs? Meh...I'd see what he has in camp first

    Out of that list, I'd like to get Hillis or Reggie Bush. Hillis because he's got enough power for the short yards and Reggie because he's dynamic and is as good as a receiver as a runner. I doubt we get Bush but Hillis could get a shot and he'd be teaming up with DMC again which might make for some good chemistry since they're both good downhill runners

    Chris Ivory is another good prospect and is tough between the tackles

    Set your sights higher man. Choice is one of the worst RB's on the list.
