When Ahmad Bradshaw was drafted out of Marshall by the Giants in 2007, I admit that I was not a believer. I didn't think he had the size or durability that would be required from a running back to succeed on this team. I am happy to say I was wrong.
A look at Bradshaw's 2010 season:
1235 yards rushing
For a seventh-round draft pick that isn't too bad. It was this draft that convinced me the Giants are in good hands with Jerry Reese at the helm. That being said, with the lockout still unresolved and Bradshaw's free agency being a major question mark, it isn't a foregone conclusion that he will be back. There are plenty of teams who may seek out his services, but these next five in particular could be big players for the Giants free agent running back.
