The 2015 RB Draft Class and Its Depth

The 2015 running back draft class is extremely deep. Georgia RB Todd Gurley, Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon, Nebraska RBAmeer Abdullah, Boise State RB JayAjayi, Indiana RBTevin Coleman Nebraska, UNI RB David Johnson, Michigan State RB Jeremy Langford,and Miami RB Duke Johnson will all likely be off the board by the end of the third round.

The talent doesn’t stop at the top of the rankings. In recent years, late round and undrafted RB’s have made big impacts, and the trend will continue. Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris was a sixth round pick in 2012, and Denver Broncos RB CJ Anderson was undrafted one year later. Both have been catalysts in their respective offenses.

While the ages of the traditional three-down back may be waning away, the deep class bodes well for the future of NFL rushing attacks.
