The value of the RB position is horribly low. Probably the lowest it has ever been.
When you combine the value of the position in todays NFL along with all of the successful backs from mid rounds it is hard to spend a 1st round pick on one at all let alone a top ten pick on a RB.

Dwayne Bowe
Mike Mamula
Tony Mandarich
Trezelle Jenkins
Jon Baldwin
Ryan Leaf
Jamarcus Russell
Rashaun Woods
Freddie Mitchell
Matt Jones
Jarvis Moss
Ron Dayne

In a draft where these guys are the top 12 prospects, the answer is no.

Dwayne Bowe
Dan Marino
Adrian Peterson
Walter Payton
Reggie White
Lawrence Taylor
Anthony Munoz
Joe Montana
Walter Payton
Jerry Rice
Tony Gonzalez
Dick Butkus

"Worth a top-ten pick" is purely a function of who the other top players are. If it's a weak draft class, someone is worth a top-ten pick even if they're going to be a below-average NFL player, as long as they're one of the ten best prospects.
You have Payton listed twice in un-relatable scenario #2. lol

Yes, if he is that talented you do it without hesitation. Ozzie Newsome who is considered the best GM by most people took one at #5 overall and immediately won the Superbowl. I don't think the game has changed so much that you avoid RBs early. Especially with the new rookie wage scale in place. Hell, last year two guards went in the top 10. Are RBs really even in question?

What about someone like LeSean McCoy? Someone who is great at running the ball AND great as a receiver out of the backfield. If you planned on running an offense suited for a back like that, would you consider him worthy of a top 10 selection?

No, it all depends on the talent. This year's class will be a pretty talented class all around and a RB (Todd Gurley) will definitely go top 10. Maybe even top 5. He's a top 10 lock.

Yeah, that's what I think. We know that it's a passing league now. But if you have a guy with great hands like McCoy or our own Jamaal Charles, why would you not take a backfield receiver who can also keep defenses honest up the middle or off tackle? Battering ram running backs in the mold of George Rogers or Christian Okoye may be out of vogue due to the terrible rules changes, but dual-threat backs should be all the more valuable as a result.

A biblical home run at RB doesn't protect them from a failure to find a solution behind center. A fact which pretty clearly shows both the risk inherent at QB as well as the value of both positions.

Too many people focus just on the risk half of the equation and ignore the reward factor. Missing 3 out of 4 times on a QB will ultimately put you ahead of teams that hit on lesser positions. Because that one hit changes the entire dynamic of a franchise, and puts them in the catbird seat for a decade.
Minnesota is a highly retarded exception. Anyone who KNOWINGLY takes Matt Cassel to be a part of their squad? Come on, man.

If the Chiefs could have traded Jamaal Charles to someone early in the 2011 season for a 1st round pick, knowing that QBs like Luck and RG III were likely to be available in the draft, would it have been a good move? I think so, because in addition to 2 1st rounders, it would have improved their chances of sucking enough to make one of them the first overall.

I like what both Indy and Cleveland are doing here. And I like Trent Richardson's chances of eventually playing in post season games better now too.
