So let's review our offense here:
Upgraded WR drastically (hard to do in the first place but we did it)
TE was already solid
QB is unupgradeable
It looks to me like our only offensive issue is an RB.
Things have really gone 180 from the Denver Teams of old. I'm inclined to think that it really doesn't even matter who runs the ball anymore as long as they don't fumble and tend to get positive yardage. Maybe find a guy that is talented at the goal line stuff.
A power runner is what is needed. Not just for goal line situations, but for getting the tough yards in general and closing out games. This is why I find myself wanting Le'veon Bell more and more. His value is looking like its right around our 2nd rounder (or close enough it won't take too much to trade up to him), and for what we need at the position he looks to be a perfect fit.
