When an immovable object is met with an unstoppable force, something has to give, right?
Alright, maybe that analogy is a little over the top, but it helps paint a picture of a fascinating offseason debate. On one side of the equation, you have those who point to multiple years of coaching history and player usage to predict future involvement. On the other hand, you have those who point out recent results, talent, and draft capital.
It’s been a hot topic for quite a while, so I figured I’d jump in and give my take on it. Here is why you should buy high on Miles Sanders.
College, Combine, & Draft Review
At first glance, Sanders had an unimpressive collegiate career until his final season at Penn State. He was blocked from getting more opportunities and production for two seasons by a generational talent, Saquon Barkley. Having that context helps explain his appearance of late breakout on paper. Regardless, when given a chance his final year, Sanders was a capable lead back.
