Rams RB Daryl Richardson – In Good Company?

Previous performance predicts future results?  Maybe not, but looking back patterns can be seen.  Looking back at Eric Dickerson we can see how his career progressed.  The same for Marshall Faulk and others.  This year the Rams starting running back is a second year player with an unknown future.  That running back is Daryl Richardson out of Abileen Christian University.  Let’s compare him to some of the Rams’ greatest running backs:

Eric Dickerson                    
Year Pos No. G GS Att Yds TD   Rec Yds Y/R TD
1983 RB 29 16 16 390 1808 18   51 404 7.9 2
1984 RB 29 16 16 379 2105 14   21 139 6.6 0

Dickerson was a legion from the first time he stepped foot on a pro field.  He was selected to the Pro Bowl and 1st Team All Pro in each of his first 2 years.

Marshall Faulk                        
Year Pos No. G GS Att Yds TD   Rec Yds Y/R TD
1994 RB 28 16 16 314 1282 11   52 522 10 1
1995 RB 28 16 16 289 1078 11   56 475 8.5 3

Faulk also exploded right out of the gate.  He was selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first 2 years.

Steven Jackson                    
Year Pos No. G GS Att Yds TD   Rec Yds Y/R TD
2004 rb 39 14 3 134 673 4   19 189 9.9 0
2005 RB 39 15 15 254 1046 8   43 320 7.4 2

Jackson become better each year and was selected to his first Pro Bowl in his 3rd season (2006).

Daryl Richardson                    
Year Pos No. G GS Att Yds TD   Rec Yds Y/R TD
2012 RB 26 16 0 98 475 0   24 163 6.8 0
2013                        

Richardson showed promise his rookie year, but the jury is still out. Given the Rams expected strong offensive line in 2013, it’s possible for him to begin his journey towards greatness.  Hopefully, he will stay healthy and 2013 will be a great year.

Go Rams!!!
