Ranking every running back drafted with a top-five pick since 1980

Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

There is only a week left until the NFL Draft comes to the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia.

Johnny Robinson had a great career, just not with the Detroit Lions, who selected him with the third pick in the 1960 NFL Draft. The most obvious selection since Andrew Luck was taken by the Indianapolis Colts has yet to come to fruition, but even the media intent on spinning every possibility are struggling to link the Browns to anyone other than Garrett. "Garrett ran a freakish 4.64 40-yard dash which is astoundingly high for a 6'4", 272-pound defensive end.

However, as per Chat Sports reports, the three organizations most likely to acquire the 5-foot-11, 202-pound rusher are the Philadelphia Eagles who now hold the No. 14 overall draft pick, the Baltimore Ravens with No. 16, and the Washington Redskins at 17th position as they are the clubs in current need of a young weapon at running back position. One of the main rationales is because of the club's newly-re-hired assistant coach Lance Murphy, who is the running back's coach at Stanford University for the past three years. The Carolina Panthers at No. 8 - I would not be surprised if they were willing to move back. It would be the highest a tight end has been drafted since the merger, but would give Blake Bortles another risky weapon in the passing game to help him develop. Dalvin Cook is poised to slide down the boards after a rough combine outing and looming off the field issues and D'Onta Foreman from Texas is a big back comparable to LeGarrette Blount. Either way, Trubisky and Watson are far and away the top two prospects in this draft.

With eleven picks the Cleveland Browns have the chance to acquire a lot of talent in this draft and build for the future.

Out of all the teams in the draft, the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans are poised to improve on last season as both teams have two first round picks. The Titans were playoff contenders until they lost franchise quarterback Marcus Mariota to a knee injury. Will Joe Haden come close to Pro Bowl form ever again? The front office is also reticent on their intentions with potential movement in the draft, but they did note they would be open to moving up if the situation presented itself when Browns noted "We don't want to get into a habit of turning two picks into one, so to speak".
