The current odds at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the over under of running backs selected in the first round at 1.5. The under is favored at -500 odds with over 1.5 running backs returning +350 odds.

The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins were the worst rushing offenses in the NFL as they ran for 3.3 yards per run. Jets have Sam Darnold as their starting quarterback so they could be in the market for a back. Jets have the 11th pick in the draft and Swift should be available. Miami has the 5th, 18th and 26th picks in the first round. They are in the market for a starting quarterback with Ryan Tannehill and Josh Rosen on the roster. Dolphins could be a landing spot late in the first round for a back. Rams, Bears and Buccaneers were the next bottom teams running the football with 3.7 per attempt. LA and Chicago have no pick in the first round. Tampa Bay just solved their quarterback position signing Tom Brady in free agency. Bucs have the 14th pick in the draft and a quality running back could buy more time in the pocket for Brady.
