Trent Richardson 12 FFC, 35 CBS
With all do respect to those mock drafting over at CBS, Trent Richardson is a top ten fantasy back already. I don’t care if he has yet to play a snap in the league, we are in desperate times to find true foundation backs in the NFL and Richardson is one of them. Not to mention he has the kind of talent that should make him an elite player at his position and could do so from year one.
Many draftniks and NFL annalists view Richardson as the best running back prospect to come out since Adrian Peterson. I believe they are right; remember Peterson had a big breakout rookie year, and did so splitting time with Chester Taylor.
Richardson will be the feature back early on, and while he plays in a tough division, I point to the success Peyton Hillis had two years ago, as a reason to believe Richardson can produce in this offense.
If Richardson should happen to fall to you in the late second to third round, it is advisable to select him, as you would have the chance to pick him up as an early RB2 option.
