I'd rather win football games.

I think since way back in 2004, no Super Bowl winner has won the big game starting anything higher than a 6th round pick at RB. A big reason why isn't that first round RBs aren't good, but it is better to spend draft picks on positions more important than RB.

But speaking of good vs. bad, RBs taken in the top 10 haven't been GOOD for the past 10 seasons. There have been 7 RBs taken top 10 and only 1 has worked out well for their drafting teams (Peterson). Bush, Ronnie Brown, Benson, Cadillac, Darren McFadden, CJ Spiller) have been major disappointments in their careers and haven't lived up to their draft status.

The Bucs would be insane to take a RB top 10, and even more insane if that RB were Trent Richardson. He is NOT Adrian Peterson, not even close. He's a good RB, a lot like Boise St.'s Doug Martin, who will likely be available in round 2.
