The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — There is a decent chance that this year’s draft class does not produce a top-20 running back, but we should see a run at the position shortly after that in the late first and early second round. The top four backs are legitimate top-50 talents who can step in and make impacts as rookies.
