C.J. Spiller Talk Heats Up | NFL Draft Rumors
As we move closer to the NFL combine next weekend, rumors over witch teams may draft Clemson speed burner C.J. Spiller continue to grow. Teams like the Lions and Seahawks have made it very clear about how they view this ultra talented speed burner and now the 49ers are rumored to be interested as well.
Both the 49ers and the Seahawks have two first round picks this year, and it looks as if the 49ers are considering drafted Spiller with their first selection at 13th overall. Seeing that the Seahawks have the 14th pick, it would be wise for the 49ers to select this stud runner before the Seahawks have the next pick.
While the 49ers already have a star running back in Frank Gore, it wouldn’t kill them to have a talent like Spiller backing him up this year. Not only that but Spillers great skills in the return game is something that is up high priority for the 49ers coming into this offseason.
San Francisco struggled all year to have a productive kick and punt game and Spiller would instantly provide a major spark in those areas.
Not only that but Spiller can also put a game away in a heart beat with fresh legs at the end of a game.
It will be interesting to see how far the hype train goes for this talented runner as he stands to be the top running back in this years’ draft.
