DeMarco Murray could potentially be one of the steals in this years draft. He is projected to go in the 2nd or 3rd round but he was once a 1st round lock. Injuries have taken a hit on him as his YPC averages have been bad the past 2 seasons. When healthy, he is a nightmare for defenders. He has great pure speed and is a great threat out of the backfield. He reminds me a lot of Darren McFadden who had a lot of success this past year with the Raiders.
