RB Christian McCaffrey's Last Name Spelled Wrong on Combine Jersey

FSU's Dalvin Cook and Stanford's Christian McCaffrey, two of the best running back prospects in the draft, both said they met with the Redskins.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, whose son, Luke, played high school ball with McCaffrey, is a believer.

"First of all, Christian McCaffrey is an unbelievable young man", Del Rio said.

The former Stanford star managed only 10 repetitions on the bench press (225 pounds), which was far below the total of other top running backs. Then he tore it up.

Teams are also peppering him with questions about bypassing the bowl game, he said. I think you understand their perspective but don't necessarily think it's a positive thing for college football. He's incredibly quick and fast, which is why he was in the Heisman talk two years ago, but he's undersized as a three-down National Football League back. "When I thought about it, kind of the old school in me wanted to come out and say, 'Why would those guys not play?" "They gave me a little ovation, and I got a lot of love from my teammates". That's just the way it is. "It's a great family, Lisa and Ed, and I'm really happy for them and their kids". I don't feel like I'm insane disrespected. That's my whole life. He said discussions about that controversial decision don't last very long.

McCaffrey said he's not just a running back who can dabble in trick or specialty plays.

Prior to the Cardinal's bowl game against North Carolina, McCaffrey made the personal decision to sit out the game and start preparing for the NFL Draft as an injury earlier in the season was still lingering.

In addition to adding pieces along the offensive line, there aren't many moves the Broncos could make this offseason that would have as big of an impact in so many areas of need - running back, slot receiver, return specialist - as McCaffrey would. "I really try to pride myself on route running, catching and being able to be a mismatch anywhere on the field".
