2021 NFL Draft: Highlights from top RB prospects

Considering Atlanta’s lack of salary cap space, the team has to be happy after landing running back Mike Davis on a two-year deal worth $5.5 million. Davis, who racked up over 1,000 all-purpose yards filling in for injured Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey last season, is a starting-caliber back that gives the Falcons options in the upcoming NFL draft.

Now Atlanta doesn’t have to use an early-round pick on a running back, but it doesn’t prohibit the team from doing so, either. Let’s take a look at some highlights from this year’s top RB prospects, including Clemson’s Travis Etienne, Alabama’s Najee Harris and Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard.
