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.
Sunday’s showdown against the Steelers at Sun Life Stadium is going to be a battle in the trenches. The Dolphins offensive line is going to try and instill their will against Pittsburgh’s powerful rush defense.
Finatics will be keeping their eyes on Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams to see if Jake and the big men up front can provide them running room.
