We may not know if or when the season's going to take place, but at least we know for sure that the NFL Draft will take place starting this upcoming Thursday.Nothing can energize a fan base like a good running back selection. Last year, the Detroit Lions picked-up Jahvid Best, and his abilities are a great part of the reason why the Detroit Lions fan base are showing some signs of optimism. I thought I'd share this list of the top running backs heading into the draft, so you see who your club may be picking up this Draft, if your team's in need of one. We just started a series (entitled Top College Running Backs) where we provide the characteristics and measurables of the top running backs heading into the draft.
If you know any young guys that play the running back position that aspire to play in the NFL, this may be valuable information for them, so they know what to shoot for.
