Running backs from Sooner State looking solid

MOBILE, Ala. — With so much focus on the quarterbacks, linemen and wideouts at the Senior Bowl, the running backs have not received a whole lot of attention this week.

That’s not to say, however, that there aren’t a pair of difference-makers at the position. Oklahoma State’s Kendall Hunter and Oklahoma’s DeMarco Murray are both demonstrating they have some ability.

They each have talent as runners, but it is their blocking that caught my attention on Wednesday.

Hunter and Murray helped themselves with a strong showing during blocking drills against the linebackers. If they continue to improve in that area throughout the week, some scouts will view them as potential every-down backs.
