How crazy is it that a guy who declared after his junior season and ended up being taken #36 overall (3rd RB behind Gurley and Gordon) in his draft class is, AT BEST, Bama’s 4th best RB in the last 10 years.
And could arguably be as low as 6th.
Likewise, Kenyan Drake is starting in the NFL, was taken #73 overall (3rd RB in his class), and he doesn’t even sniff the Top 5 for Bama RBs in the Saban era.
This is nuts.
Who would you put above him in regard to him being as low as 6th? The first 4 are obvious, I just wanna know that 5th man
You could make reasonable arguments for Harris. He needs 1100 yards this year to pass Yeldon, and has 250 less career carries.
Harris’s YPC is 6.7, whereas Yeldon had 5.8. Harris gets a yard more a pop. Yeldon has a huge TD advantage, but Damien has spent 2 years with Jalen snagging goal line TDs.
I still have Yeldon 4th over Harris and Lacy, but my point was that it’s absurd you could actually put forth an argument that Yeldon is 6th without making a total idiot of yourself.
