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.
With the Dolphins off this weekend, I figured today would be a good day to post my first quarter “grades” for the team. The Fins are currently 25% of the way through the regular season and, at 2-2, are chasing the 3-1 Patriots and Jets in the AFC East. The Fins are one of seven 2-2 teams in the conference and one of 13 in the league.
