Vaughn had a solid freshman season in which he ran for 723 yards and had 119 receiving yards off 16 receptions. It is fair to say that he did not have his best season considering he rushed for eight touchdowns the year before in Miami. He is a natural route runner who can create space against man coverage and find the soft spots in a zone. He would transfer to Vanderbilt but had to sit out what would have been his junior season in 2017. Now onto 2018, he missed the final three games with a high ankle sprain. Williams scored just three rushing touchdowns after posting seven in 2018, but he should bounce back with an improved offense around him. Moss is among the best in that department the draft has seen in a half-decade.

He now has managed 557 attempts, 2,383 yards, and 23 touchdowns. Moss anticipates defenders well moving into the second level and uses his blockers out in space. But despite all that, I was forced to rank Taylor behind Etienne. He has an every down skillset, and depth chart permitting, will be a day one starter. He also obtained 10 touchdowns this season, a very respectable number for any player.

Swift posted a 32-297-3 receiving line last fall amid an extremely crowded backfield rotation. He managed 16 touchdowns this season and ran for 1,239 yards - so yeah he doesn't really mess around. What made me place Ajayi this high was simply because of the side of him we saw this past season. He showcases superb feet and sudden change of direction. Monty Pylon had 99, Motor Singletary had 96. Taylor can pass Etienne this fall by beginning to contribute as a receiver, taking steps with pass protection, and cutting the fumbles in half again.

Swift is a patient runner who shows good ball carrier vision, fantastic burst through the hole and is incredibly elusive in open space. Swift is a joy to watch with the ball in his hands and utilizes an array of violent cuts which he couples with great vision and contact balance to be one of the most electric running backs in this draft class. McCoy has shown crazy juking and finesse since he entered the league in 2009. The Huskies back is a human lightning bolt. Hunt is young and talented, but some teams may view him as too big of a risk to sign. He showed a great proclivity for finding the end zone last year, as his 12 rushing scores were third in the conference behind Hubbard and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Ingram is known to be good at getting in open space. He is in the mix to be the first running back off the board. Quarterbacks dropped , and receivers are coming next week. Keep in mind that Harry was around gobbling up targets on that team. Between Sony Michel, Damien Harris, Rex Burkhead, and James White, they have plenty of talent and depth at the position.

In 2015, Cook rushed for 1,691 yards on 229 attempts and in 2016 he upped that ante with 1,765 yards on 288 carries. Just last year we witnessed Phillip Lindsay take the league by storm as an undrafted. For Wisconsin, Taylor has been an afterthought on third downs. Taylor was Pro Football Focus' highest-graded running back in 2018. He got off to a very slow start after holding out for the first four games.

Tevin Coleman has paved the way as one of the league's premier backups, who could easily start on another team. This gap is extremely big, but I still do not doubt his ability. His agility in close quarters hinders the ability of defenders to square him up properly, and it messes with the angles of those pursuing him from distance. This does not mean the back will be selected in the top 10 but has the potential to be considered that high year in and year out. The important thing that distinctly makes running backs different than any other position is that they do not last very long. For more from Raju, check out his and follow him. Evidently, Gurley had 1,106 yards rushing two years ago and 885 yards in 2016.
