With more and more emphasis in the passing game, coupled with teams gearing towards a “running back by committee” approach, the day and age of the franchise ball carrier is starting to fade away. One look at this year’s tailback class and it is easy to see that there is one true franchise running back in the group, and the only player considered to be a certain first round pick – Alabama’s Trent Richardson.
