Terrance Ganaway would be perfect in the NFC East and should carve a nice niche with each team until he is ready to take over full-time duties.
At 6’0, 240 lbs., Ganaway isn’t going to make many tacklers miss, but would immediately become the most bruising runner in the entire division.
His large frame and violent style of running is something that is absent amongst the four teams and his presence would add an element that would change each offensive attack.
The Dallas Cowboys have two promising backfield talents in Felix Jones and DeMarco Murray, but both come with injury concerns.
In his only season as the featured back, the Baylor product rushed for 1,547 yards with a 6.2 average and 21 scores on the ground. This proves that he is more than capable of carrying the load.
Some may suggest that he's a "one-hit wonder," but it really points to how little abuse he's had to endure.
If the Super Bowl champions selected him, the New York Giants could deploy him in a role similar to Brandon Jacobs. The seven-year pro could return to New York, but Ganaway would provide a cheaper and more promising option.
Aside from Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy, the Philadelphia Eagles don’t have much depth in the backfield.
Fullback Owen Schmitt remains a free agent and only saw 16.7 percent of the Eagles offensive snaps last year. Chances are that Philly won’t carry a fullback next season—which makes a big-bodied bruiser important to have on the roster.
The most intriguing team for the downhill runner would be the Washington Redskins.
It would be a shocker if the Skins didn’t select Ganaway’s college teammate Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick. By reuniting the duo in the professional ranks means the two rookies would be automatically ahead of the learning curve thanks to their chemistry.
Mike Shanahan is known for his ability to get the most out of his running backs. And even with a crowded backfield, Ganaway could be viewed as a way to protect their franchise quarterback more than anything else.
