Maybe there is less faith in Guice. 

And Love...and the former Perine...and the former Jones...

 

RB is one of 22 starting positions, should be drafted once in every 3 years, and yet instead of 4.5% of picks, we have used 20% of our top 4 picks each year on a RB.  In today's NFL that is criminal.

True. Don't think Peterson will be back next year either.

He better be either A. An amazing RB, or B. A Wide Receiver or otherwise Ron Rivera can get out and stop trying to be Bruce Allen.

 

Ive never seen a team value the least valuable position on the field so much.  Every year instead of a linemen or something actually useful we add another high round 

Spent first round picks on linemen 5 out of the past 6 years. Used multiple picks  on middle and late round offensive and defensive lineman as well recently. One first round pick on a wide receiver in the past six drafts.

Somebody is paying attention!

Welcome to the Redskins Antonio Gibson!

 

I'm told the Redskins plan to play Memphis' Antonio Gibson as both a receiver and a back, and the expectation is that he'll practice at and learn each spot. Staff had versatile types McCaffrey and Samuel in Carolina. Hope is, Gibson will be more of a true hybrid than either.

Some clips from my previous watching of Gibson that I posted on other threads.   Him and Bowden IMO were the ultimate swiss army knives in this draft.  I've liked Gibson slightly ahead of Bowden.

 

KR-RB-WR.  YAC. Physical.  Beast of an athlete.  He is going to be the ultimate tool IMO in the backfield -- sweeps, end arouds, handoffs.

Meh if they are using him as an RB its not much of a value added pick. If they use him more as a WR it is a good pick. To add I say that because Love and Guice are more talented RBs than Gibson

He's a hybrid which is a valuable toy to have in today's NFL.

Like I said as an RB it is a stupid pick. WR it is a smart pick. Hybrid is a fancy way of saying he doesn't have a true position. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Makes way more sense as a WR

It works when you have a new regime with plans for him and non existent or predictable running backs.
