#17 overall in 1990. He would've went a lot higher, but he had a bad combine.

I will say this to everyone watching the situation. You will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever see a featured back under Mooch. If the Lions only had two backs, Priest Holmes and Troy Hambrick, Mooch would still give Troy 25-35% of the carries. Its just the way he works.

Well that kinda makes sense. When you're up 40 points halfway through the 3rd quarter, you sit Priest and just run the clock out with Hambrick up the middle every single play, thus he ends up with 25-35% of the carries. Don't want to risk injury when the game is all but over.

1997 Garrison Hearst 234 carries, 1000 yards (13 games injury shortened)
1998 Garrison Hearst 310 carries, 1500 yards
1999 Charlie Garner 241 carries, 1200 yards
2000 Charlie Garner 258 carries, 1250 yards

Like I said, any coach will use one guy if that one guy can do everything. Mooch used a feature back approach his first four years coaching the 9ers. This should be a clue for all FF coaches. If Mooch is looking for more RBs, he isn't confident in the guys he has. IOW, stay away from the Lions for a fantasy RB, even a backup.

As a Lions fan, I would be mad if they wasted a first rd pick on a RB this yr.

There are simply too many immediate needs for this team to add another young RB to our roster. 5 under 28 yrs old is plenty.
