8. Giovani Bernard – Cincinnati Bengals

Bernard has great running and catching ability and because of this he will see a bigger role in the Bengals offense this season. It is not unlikely that he will have a breakout season that propels him to elite status.

7. DeMarco Murray – Dallas Cowboys

DeMarco Murray is another versatile running back who could benefit from a change in the offensive scheme. If Murray’s health serves him well there is a possibility for him to break into the top-tier of running backs this season.

6. Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks

Lynch took off in Seattle last season and was a big piece of the Seahawks Superbowl season. Lynch is now 28 and after carrying the ball 300 + times last season, his durability and age could be an issue.
