Competitiveness is a great and imperative trait needed for success. Yet, we also have to be smart about things, and that includes where to compete.
I like, no love, all three of these guys as RB prospects, but one of them has to be thinking about bolting. First, they face immediate competition from T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake. Plus Dee Hart will be back.
Then, once they escape that playing-time blockade, each guy will have to battle two other good backs for carries. If I'm one of them, maybe going somewhere else isn't a bad idea.
