[Insert Broken Cadillac Pun Here]

The rumor of the day, courtesy of the premier rumor mongers in the NFL, is that Cadillac's career may be over. I put zero stock in this rumor, mostly because the PFT crotch puppets have admitted that they have zero journalistic integrity. This is a website which blatantly manufactures stories to generate traffic to their website.

That being written it is very likely we will not see Cadillac for the first part of next season. The knee injury Cadillac suffered (torn patellar tendon) is much more serious than an ACL tear. Before the 2006 season Browns center LeCharles Bentley suffered the same injury (although he also had to deal with serious staph infection) and Bentley has not played since.

It will be interesting to see if the Bucs consider drafting a runningback in this draft. While the Bucs look to be in good shape with Graham as the very-down guy and Michael Bennett potentially being the big-play guy, there is a good deal of back depth in this year's draft.

If the Bucs were to pick up another back, who do you like?

Regarding scouting talent, I totally agree. Frankly, I always though McKay was a miracle worker when it came to that aspect, and if we could get someone of his caliber, we'd be in good shape.

most of the backs i like will be drafted in the 1st or 2nd round, and i hope the bucs spend those picks on other positions. backs are a lot like linebackers, you can find value in the later rounds, i.e. earnest graham.

for whatever reason NFLDraftCountdown.com has Steve Slaton rated as the 9th best back, most likely because of his size. Slaton's speed would make a nice 1-2 punch w/ Graham.
