    Every year we hear about a late round/free agent running back who makes a roster, buys his time and ends up fighting for playing time early in his NFL career. Therefore, today we highlight some of the top potential late round/free agent type backs who could all fit that mold for this year and end up out producing some of the “more talented” running backs drafted before them.

    Allen Bradford: Southern Cal
    If you want a big, strong, explosive runner to take a flyer on late, Bradford is your guy. He possesses good power, gets up to speed quickly and knows how to create after contact. He lacks a great feel in tight areas and isn’t an overly instinctive runner, but the skill set is most definitely there for him to be able to mature into a very good NFL running back if he can get into the right scheme that simply allows him run toward daylight.

    Donald Buckram: UTEP
    Buckram rushed for over 1,500 yards as a junior in 2009, averaging over 6.0 yards per carry. On tape he was sudden, fluid, explosive in tight areas and displayed a real feel between the tackles. He runs a bit upright, which led to him struggling to stay healthy as a senior. However, if he ever learns to keep his pad level down, the guy has the ability to consistently create for himself inside as an NFL runner.
