You're passing on him?
I'd be very hesitant to draft him yes.

Based on th longevity of the position in today's NFL and the trend of being able to find suitable backs elsewhere, I'd be hesitant

That's kind of what the Colts just did.

That's the key. RBs break almost inevitably.

Look at Knowshon. They're risky.

Yep. Or about any rb. Though he had a very good game last week.

If the answer is yes, then you should have drafted a QB with that pick.
This isn't QB v. RB.

Any team that doesn't take a QB if they don't have one should be expellede from the league.

No, it doesn't really make sense to draft them high. Runningback has become more of a complimentary position in the NFL, with the explosion of the passing game, and the league as a whole has shifted towards stables of specialist RBs rather than featured single backs. There's a few exceptions of course, but they basically prove the rule.

You never really know what you're getting until it hits the field. That's true with any position, but more so with RB's.

They also tend to have shorter careers.

It's riskier than a QB. If the QB sucks, you'll have a shot at picking another and hopefully better one sooner rather than later. If the RB sucks, you're stuck in a reverse one dimensional game that will kill most QB's.
