The 2017 NFL draft may be just under one year away, but it’s never too early to start looking at the next crop of likely prospects jockeying for early-round consideration.
Let’s take a look at some (not all) running backs worth keeping an eye on throughout the summer. The 2017 running back class is considered a strength of next year’s draft, and it may be the strongest crop to come out in many years.
Keep in mind this is not a ranking; rather, it’s meant to serve as a guide as you begin to scout next year’s class.
Georgia RB Nick Chubb does not appear on this list. He is one of the top running back prospects in the country, assuming he can return to form following his devastating knee injury last year. As his tape becomes available, he will be added to our ever-growing library.
