Recommended Posts

Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama. Previous Rank: 10

10/18/11: Richardson had a massive game running for 183 yards on 17 carries with four touchdowns against Ole Miss. It was another dominant performance.

A couple weeks ago, he ran through Florida for 184 yards on 29 carries with two touchdowns.

Against Arkansas, Richardson had a massive, unstoppable game, gaining 126 yards rushing on 17 carries as well as three catches for 85 yards and a touchdown (on a 61-yard screen pass).

He went over 100 yards for the first time this season against Penn State, running for 111 yards on 26 carries with two touchdowns.

Thus far in 2011, Richardson has 16 total touchdowns (15 rushing, one receiving). He has run for 912 yards while averaging 7 yards per carry.

8/24/11: Trent Richardson finally gets the chance to be the lead dog at Alabama. He combines good size (5-11, 224) with excellent speed to break off long runs. After averaging 5.6 yards per carry in his first two seasons, Richardson is poised to have a big season in 2011 when he is the focal point for Alabama's offense.

With RBC being so prevalent in the league, and having 2 first round picks (Addai, Brown) and a recent short yardage back invested in our running game, I just do not see it. We have way more pressing needs at this point. Besides, Alabama is a run first system where there is not too much blitz pickups by the RB, that is another thing to think about.
