The biggest steal of the draft at running back might be USC running back Allen Bradford. I've said for awhile that I've wanted this guy because he really showed some serious running ability this year at SC but that was also because of my homerism. After the combine, though, I don't see how anyone can disagree.
This tweet says it all:
Allen Bradford is bigger (242), stronger (28 reps) and faster (unofficial 4.56) than Mark Ingram. #justsaying
and this one just for fun:
Wisconsin #Badgers RB John Clay (231lbs) 4.77 40-yd time isn't helped when USC #Trojans RB Allen Bradford (242lbs) runs a 4.56 40-yd.
242 lbs and a 4.56 40 time is incredible! Top that off with more reps than over half of the offensive linemen and his stock just skyrocketed to the first 3 rounds. He's also very fresh with less than 300 carries throughout his college career, great back to replace SJ in the future and is also a hard worker.
Thoughts on your steals and who intrigues you at running back?
On another note, Stephen Paea leads the combine with 49 reps to go along with his impressive play on the field. I wouldn't mind that guy with the 14th pick at all. Julio Jones is making a strong case as well, might even be picked ahead of Green when it's all said and done.
