Very Strong Response!ironically, neither Nick Chubb nor Derrick Henry were drafted in round 1. neither were Jonathan Taylor, Joe Mixon, Dalvin Cook, Eli Mitchell, Antonio Gibson and Damien Harris. only two of the top 10 rushers in 2021 were first round picks (Najee Harris, Zeke Elliott).
five of those players were 2nd rounders. that's the sweet spot for RBs in today's NFL.
I'm not advocating for or against a RB in the 1st or 2nd, but because they have been taken high is not really a great argument...If that's the case why do most drafts have RBs taken in the 1st round.
Yes it's a passing league but teams like the Titans and Browns have star RB that put them in the playoffs each year. Not their shitty QBs
