College stats got these guys drafted. Once they're on teams, those stats are no longer important.
What matters now is what these guys do in practice and in preseason games. So far, Thompson's the guy who has stood out, and all the reports out of training camp have been very positive. Maybe Thompson doesn't start the year as the starting RB, but I like his chances to be a significant part of the running game early and take more and more of it as the year goes on.
