Watching a running back turn something into nothing is one of the most exciting moments in the NFL.
The bouncer who pops out of the mosh pit to shake tacklers and take it up field; the burner who cuts the corner and is suddenly a blur; the bruiser who carries defenders 15 yards for that desperately needed first down.
Today's NFL has a handful of backs who make defenses stand up and pay attention. A smaller group still that hold in their hands the power to turn a game around in a nanosecond.
Trent Richardson, the third overall pick in last year's draft, is already one of them.
One of the most exciting backs in the league, with blazing speed to match his brutal style of play, Richardson is a game-planning nightmare for opposing coaches.
Richardson is first in our six pack of great backs in the NFL. Turn the page (going old school here) for the rest of the list.
