1.) Trent Richardson finishes Top 5 in Rushing Yards
-Drafted with the 3rd Overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Trent Richardson is one of the rare RB prospects that can do everything. Richardson will be the workhorse back in Cleveland in part because of his ability to catch passes out of the backfield along with his impressive blocking ability. The Cleveland Browns traded up for him to secure the player who they feel can lead their franchise for years to come, much like Adrian Peterson has done for the Minnesota Vikings. This season Richardson will have the chance to be the man for this Browns offense, while rookie QB Brandon Weeden will try to adjust to the NFL game, Richardson should see a majority of the carries in the Browns backfield, along with the goal line work. Thanks to a stout offensive line led by the best Tackle in the game Joe Thomas, and Alex Mack is ready to establish himself as one of the better Centers in football. The situation is a perfect one for Richardson, and with the league in a transition to the passing game, there should be no reason Richardson can’t finish among the Top 5 RB’s in rushing yards.
