Todd Gurley, LAR – It really is a shame that Gurley has this chronic injury issue with the arthritic knee. It is possible that we have seen Gurley’s best years on the football field already, even though he is only 24 years old. With that said, it is possible that Gurley could still be productive. I do not think he will ever be as productive as he was though. The Rams backfield could become one where Gurley still sees a healthy portion of carries but Malcom Brown and Darrell Henderson play significant roles. That’s the way the wind is blowing, so if you scoop up Gurley (late), make sure you pick up Brown or Henderson. For me, I’ll be watching camp closely to see if I can figure out who the true RB2 is, and then I will draft accordingly.
David Montgomery epitomizes the NFL back of old. Stout tough runner who when you need four yards, takes the ball and gets you five while running some guys over. He doesn’t have great speed or a great receiver so many will have him lower in their ranks. For me he has been extremely consistent in college and one of the best runners in this class.
