In an Insider piece, Matt Williamson foresees a strong group of running backs in three seasons.
Williamson projects the top 10 running backs in the NFL for the 2015 season. Three AFC West players are on the list. Williamson believes San Diego’s Ryan Mathews will be the No. 3 back, Oakland’s Darren McFadden will be No. 4 and Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles will be No. 8.
I think all three could be in the top 10 in the NFL as soon as … now. All McFadden, 24, and Charles, 25, need is health. All Mathews, 24, needs is to find consistency.
It’s a strong time for running backs in the division for the present and the future.
