2. Justin Forsett turns 31 in September
Running backs come with an expiration date. Justin Forsett reached his best buy date, but he might stay fresh a little longer because his container stayed shut most of his career. The journeyman running back saved the Ravens from a terrible situation caused by his predecessor. Unfortunately, Forsett’s big year came about five years too late.
NFL backs get beaten and battered playing possibly the most brutal position in all of sports. Despite the lack of carries early in his career, few players continue playing into their 30s. Last season showed a decline in Forsett’s physical ability. He missed six games due to injuries and averaged over a yard per carry less than in 2014. Ezekiel Elliott not only brings youth to the position, but he brings a different skill set to the position.
Elliott would potentially be a spark plug for the Ravens offense. He is the kind of player that is hard to pass up in the NFL Draft.
