    Which RBs do you guys think are still available for the pats? I think we need a power running back. Jonathan Dwyer? - but there are concerns that he is a system running back. who else?

    Jonatahn Stewart plays for the Panthers. Dwyer? Yeah, we could get good value in him. He was projected in the first round a few months ago. I just posted in a couple other threads about Joe McKnight. He reminds me of a young Kevin Faulk although a little bit taller. He has speed and agility.

    Starks from Buffalo, they supposedly had in.

    Anthony Dixon from Ms. State is a good bruising RB kind of like antowain smith (when he was good).

    Lonyae Miller and Andre Dixon looked pretty good at the shrine. Dorin Dickerson might be give some consideration as a 3rd-down back.

    I would go with Dwyer or James Starks for 1st and 2nd down-type backs and Chris Brown for a 3rd down back.

    At opposite ends of the spectrum, Anthony Dixon and Deji Karim. One bruiser, one skitterer.

    What I love about Karim is how compactly he runs. He hits full speed (which is mighty fast indeed) in a low, tucked-in stance that makes him tough to tackle. He's useful catching the ball, too.

    Deji's my late-round binky. I think Lonyae Miller might be a steal late, too, but I think they'll go after Starks, who missed his senior season but had over 1,300 rushing and 52 catches his junior year: University at Buffalo - Football - Go Bulls!

    Johnathan Dwyer is the best available by far. NFL.com said he's a boom or bust type.

    Right after football ended, I remember him being 2nd or 3rd best back in the early 2nd round.

    No Jersey Selected

    National Football Post has Dwyer as third ranked RB, behind Best and Spiller.

    "Dwyer isn't a burner once he gets into the open field, but he has enough speed to consistently reach the corner and create big plays once he gets into space."

    A pounder who can get some 10-15 yarders. I'll take that.

    Blount, Deji karim and Joique Bell but I would not draft any before the 6th and preferably the 7th round
