[DiLalla] Vic Fangio on Javonte Williams: “He’s a damn good back and we’re thrilled to have him.” Said he made something out of nothing a few times. Will continue to get plenty of work.

You know, the running back is actually damn good

I’m so excited to have him. I can’t wait to see him break out

It feels like more and more fangio is getting to play the guys he is excited about. Really Hope it all comes together for him

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I think running backs are a complete waste of a draft pick. Elite RBs are obviously wonderful to have, but how often are the top rushers top draft picks? Not very often. I swear, I see more UDFA top rushers than first and second rounders. IDK, could just be me, but look at Ingram, Fournette, Barkley, Moreno (a bit older lol). All first rounders that are just run of the mill backs. That being said, I hope Javonte Williams kills it.

I don’t think Williams was the best use of our second pick, but most of the top rushers get drafted in his range (Chubb, Henry, Taylor) and we literally just saw Melvin Gordon, a first rounder, beat out the guy considered to be the top UDFA back. You definitely get better backs in higher rounds

If anything doesnt it make more sense to secure a legit back through the draft on a rookie deal rather than signing someone tried and proven (aka expensive) in free agency or by trade? Even if its a 2nd or 3rd rounder, if you know he's your guy and you can afford the draft pick, you are getting him for much less than what these acclaimed running backs in the league are asking for.

RBs are definitely a waste of a high draft pick, but they're an even bigger waste of money to sign in FA. RBs really don't matter at all, they have very very little affect on the game. Rushing success is more about the O-line and QB than RBs.
