Five times in the last 20 years, NFL teams have used first-round picks on running backs, only to see them not have any 1,000-yard rushing seasons until after they landed with other teams. What is the only team that has salvaged two of these backs?
Oakland Raiders, with Tyrone Wheatley (Giants) and Harvey Williams (Kansas City). Other late-bloomers include …
Cedric Benson (drafted by Bears, played better for Bengals).
Thomas Jones (drafted by Arizona, five 1,000-yard seasons with Bears and Jets).
Reggie Bush (drafted by Saints, went over 1,000 for Miami in 2011).
