If Adrian Peterson is there, take him. Otherwise, you can probably find a great starting RB in the second or even third round almost every year.

I voted no, but of course it depends. If you think the last piece you need to contend for a Superbowl, then sure. If you think he's HOF caliber, then sure.

I voted yes. If the talent is there and the guy is way up on your board then you take him. Todd Gurley is a lock to go Top 10 in 2014. Richardson is a stud. He just doesn't fit their system and the Browns need a QB in a bad way.

I voted yes but ONLY if you already have your QBOTF and you feel this is a once in a generation type of player.

So, if the Packers/Falcons could draft AP/Tomlinson/Marcus Allen/Bo Jackson this offseason then yes...

According to most of you, the only position worthy of a top 10 pick is QB. Think of how stupid that is?

You need impact players all over the field. You don't have to have a great RB to win, but it sure as hell doesn't hurt.

Really depends on quite a few different variables.

IMO, the poll question is whether or not you should put a RB that high on your board in the first place.

That's not even remotely close to correct. The consensus, by and large, is that you take OT, QBs, pass rushers, a dominant NT/DT, CB, or WR.

There's plenty of reasons why the average draft position of RBs has dropped over time, including the fungibility and short careers of RBs and the move to pass-heavy league.

Build a good oline and system and many backs can be very successful.

See Shanahan and the Broncos:

Terrell Davis
Mike Anderson
Clinton Portis
Reuben Droughns
Tatum Bell
Olandis Gary

Granted, TD was special, but still...

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.
pretty sure that type of nuanced argument isn't allowed. FYI.

I think you may have the wrong cause. Your first sentence should be "Have your offensive linemen dive at defenders' knees and the backs of their legs, and many backs can be very successful."

Only if you are sure you are getting the next Adrian Peterson or Ray Rice. Other then that other positions are more important.
