Little Lebowski Urban Achiever
In today's NFL drafting a running back with a shelf life barely into his 30's just doesn't make fiscal or team building sense. Every year it seems that 5 months before the draft... there is some all pro stud running back who is going to go as high as AP and play like AP... then as the draft gets closer and closer... the seem to slip further and further down to the middle of the 1st round or to the end..... or in some cases out of it altogether.
You want to use the argument that he looks as advertised in college and will be the next adrian peterson? Ill sign up all day for that. Unless of course a franchise quarterback is "as advertised" or a pure elite pass rusher is "as advertised".. because in todays NFL, a great running back is a luxury, an all pro QB and pass rush is a necessity.
