I know I'm probably going to get a stream of comments like:
"Two words: Black + Mon"
"Are you crazy? Blackmon all the way"
But in my opinion, and I hope many others, Trent Richardson is a far better and safer choice. He has a brilliant style of running similar to SJ39 but with more agile cuts and better breakaway speed. He would be a top HB as soon as he got the starting job and until then could learn from one of the best in Steven Jackson. Justin Blackmon is not worth it. I know that we could pretty much take anything with hands atm but you have to compare it with previous drafts; He's no Megatron or AJ Green, or even Julio Jones. Trent Richardson is a mile ahead of any other HB prospect this year but people are already debating if WRs that could drop to the 2nd round could turn out better than Blackmon. I promise you that if we pass up (or miss out) on Richardson, sometime in the near future he will make us pay. I just hope Jeff Fisher and the Rams see that.
