Deangelo williams is 30 and Jstew cant stay on the field. With everyone talking about our need at wideout we have a need thats going to need to be addressed within the next 2-3 years thats going to conflict with the re-signing of keek and star. is kenyon barner the future at the postion? maybe if he bulks up some but i don't see he being in the league after his rookie contract is up. Is drafting a RB early really that out of the question?
The long term solution at RB

Getty has said he wants to draft players that can make an immediate impact.
With Stew, DWill, Barner and Mike on the roster, let's just say I doubt it.

Barner is not an every-down back. He's not even a third-down back.
We can't do anything to fix our backfield until next year, when we can cut D-wil without issue. If Gettleman hadn't restructured Stewart we could have cut him too, but I guess we have a soft spot for training bike regulars.

I wanna hang myself looking at our 100mil backfield compared to what Ben Tate, Moreno, MJD, McFadden all got.

Deangelo has been pretty solid for us lately. Not elite but he's good enough. I hope he ends up staying with the team until retirement because at least he has shown he can stay healthy and produce at his age.
I've wanted to Stewart to be the feature back for a while now. He was the chosen one but the guy literally is never on the field.
It all depends on Barner. Did he bulk up? What can he do? If he proves to be a home run threat or a weapon in some capacity I'd be pretty happy with him and Deangelo. Give Tolbert more carries. He's basically a RB for us anyway.

Barner's not built to be an NFL RB. Give him a little space and he can produce, but from what I've seen, Warrick Dunn was a bruiser in comparison.

in this league, there is no such thing as long term solution at RB
adrian peterson is the only exception.

DeAngelo Williams performance is directly dependent upon the performance of the O-line. A lot of people will drop poor game performance at his feet, when in reality, he runs as well as the O-line in front of him plays.
