LAST WEEK: Outside LBs

Today in the 'Philm' Room, we're looking at running backs and how they transfer from the college game to the pro game. There are three components required to play the running back position in the NFL:

1. Vision and Instincts

2. Inside running

3. The capacity to hit the home run

We use examples of former Alabama running back Eddie Lacy and former UCLA running back Johnathan Frankin. Both players, coincidentally, were drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 2013 NFL Draft.
