If Peter Schrager is accurate, there may not be a faster-rising draft prospect than Georgia running back Sony Michel.
Coming off a spectacular senior season, which capped an all-time great Georgia career for a running back, the FOX Sports writer and Good Morning NFL host had some recent high praise for Michel. In comparing Michel to former Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara, also the 2017 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Schrager wisely sees the value Michel brings to an NFL franchise should he manage to match the success of Kamara.
Schrager is of the belief that Michel could rise as high as a top 10 pick in the upcoming draft. While that lofty status seems like a high price for a club to pay, if they receive a performance from Michel worthy of NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2018, it’s a price most would be willing to spend.
Any chance you see Michel rising up the draft boards enough to land in the top 10?
