6. Justin Forsett, RB-BAL
It is very rare that an NFL running back starts to make an impact at the age of 28. That is exactly what occurred last season when Just Forsett took over the number one running back duties and went on to put up a career season.
In 2014, Forsett finally got his chance to shine and he did not disappoint. He tallied 1,266 yards and 8 touchdowns while leading the Baltimore Ravens to the Divisional Playoff round losing to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
My problem with Forsett is that running backs just don’t rise from the ashes at the age of 29-30 years old . Even with him not being a number one back his entire career, he still has plenty of wear taken off those tires.
Running backs in football start their decline at the magic number of 30 years old. Forsett hits that number this season and it scares me just enough to avoid him early in the draft.
