The Stable of Alabama Running Backs
As we all have seen the past few years the Crimson Tide have pumped out some very talented running backs. I didn't go back very far, starting back in 2000.
2000 - Sean Alexander (19th)
2003 - Ahmaad Galloway (235th)
2007 - Kenneth Darby (246th)
2009 - Glen Coffee (74th)
2011 - Mark Ingram (28th)
2012 - Trent Richardson (3rd)
Even backs like Shaud Williams (UDFA) and fullbacks Le'Ron McClain and Brad Smelley have made it in the NFL.
What gets even crazier is what is yet to come with Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon, with Lacy likely the top RB in this draft class.
Then we see that they have 3 big time commits for 2013 in Derrick Henry, Tyren Jones, and Altee Tenpenny. Not saying that any of them will pan out, but I would have to venture a guess that at least one of them would.
The questions is...can we look to Bama as a new sort of Running Back U? Besides the fact that it is just oozing with crazy talented kids all over the field.
