|Joseph Randle kind of strikes us as a poor man's Darren McFadden. He doesn't have McFadden's injury issues -- the comparison is strictly regarding build and skill sets -- but like McFadden, Randle is a bit of an upright runner with a lower build thinner than his upper, and he's a skilled slasher with standout receiving ability. He was largely a RB/WR tweener as a backup to Kendall Hunter in 2010, catching 37 passes for 427 yards in 13 games, but since then Randle added some bulk and rounded out his game, showing a solid all-around skill set by this year, when he ran for 1,417 yards (5.2 YPC) and 14 touchdowns in 13 games. Although not naturally strong, Randle does a good job of using his momentum to slide past tacklers and fall forward once he gets moving, getting narrow in traffic to slip forward for subtle yardage. If he gets open field, Randle shows good explosiveness and strong cutback ability to break free from over- and under-pursuers. We think he might be the second running back picked after Eddie Lacy, with a good chance of going in the second round. |
