Alfred Morris of the Washington Redskins is an amazing running back who is entering his second season in the NFL after having a rookie of the year type of season. The only reason why he didn’t win the award is because 2012 was the year of the rookie quarterback as Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson and his own teammate Robert Griffin III had three of the best rookie quarterback seasons in league history. Morris had 1,613 yards rushing with 13 touchdowns last year, and besides RG3, he was one of the main offensive reasons why the Redskins won the NFC East. Morris was drafted in the sixth round and played his college ball for the Florida Atlantic University Owls.
It’s amazing how Morris earned his starting gig last season by beating out players like Roy Helu, Evan Royster and even Tim Hightower, but the rest as they say is history. Morris is an extremely shifty running back who compares to Buffalo Bills‘ star veteran Fred Jackson in the sense that he isn’t the fastest guy pounding the rock, but he is like water by flowing downhill and can always find his way through tight seams.
All in all, since it’s the third game the Bills will have to shut Alfred Morris down for at least the first half in order to win and go to 3-0 in preseason.
