The trend of no running backs being taken in the first round of the NFL Draft might be about to change. In what is considered a devalued position, talent seems to be shining through.
Elite Mens J.R. Richard Jersey “I know over the years we¡¯ve talked about devaluing running backs. At the end of the day, you have to have a few guys who can carry the load,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said. “This year, I think a couple of those running backs at the top have a chance to be special.”
If two are being pointed out as potentially being special, chances are that means Georgia¡¯s Todd Gurley and Wisconsin¡¯s Melvin Gordon. No matter if they¡¯re ordered Gurley and Gordon or Gordon and Gurley, those two are considered by most to be the top running backs in this year¡¯s draft.
Seahawks’ Jeremy Lane could miss start of 2016 season due to surgery
Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane will need surgery after suffering a torn ACL in addition to a broken arm suffered during the return of an interception off Tom Brady, according to Nick Shook of Around the NFL.

The arm injury looked gruesome, yet may not have been the worst injury he suffered on the play. Lane also hurt his knee and could be out through training camp and into the early part of 2016. That would leave Seattle vulnerable at the cornerback position.
Behind All-Pro Richard Sherman and Lane, only Byron Maxwell and Tharold Simon are left as viable options. Maxwell could depart in free agency, while Simon struggled in limited duty. The situation could prompt Seattle to take a corner early in the draft or acquire one via free agency in March.
