Guest Blog: Sam Madison (Dolphins CB 1997-2005, 4x Pro Bowl selection)

Time to continue our series on the history of the NFL Draft. Last week, we gave you the history of the 15th overall pick, which is currently held by the Dolphins. Today, we’ll assess the drafting of running backs.
With countless mock drafts suggesting that the Fins will select Alabama RB Mark Ingram in the first round, I thought it would be interesting to test Troy Stradford’s theory that running backs are a “dime a dozen.”
In 2010, the NFL’s leading rusher was Arian Foster of the Houston Texans, who ran for over 1,600 yards.
