Ranking the RBs in the 2015 NFL Draft

The 2015 draft for running backs is the best I’ve seen in years. At the top, we have maybe six backs who can be solid-to-great starters in the NFL. Then, another 20, at least, who can be solid contributors to varying degrees. Then, after that, it’s more of a lottery situation, with a lot of talent, but big deficiencies, too.

And I really don’t mean to fight against traffic, but I seem to be the only person who doesn’t think Todd Gurley’s a transcendent talent. I don’t know why this is – maybe I’ve never seen the right games – but I do think he’s a very good power back with adequate athleticism. I absolutely love TJ Yeldon, my favorite back in this class (though he’s ranked 4th or lower in most other people’s lists), with Melvin Gordon only slightly behind him.
