The list of 2018 NFL Scouting Combine RB invites is pretty impressive and includes everyone from Rashaad Penny and his FBS-leading 2,248 yards rushing to early season Heisman candidate and jack-of-all-trades Saquon Barkley. There's also a pair of FCS stud running backs that will get their chance to shine in front of NFL scouts.
You may not have watched a ton of Jacksonville State and Fordham games the past two to four seasons, but these schools each featured some of the greatest running backs in team history.
Let's get to know them.
Edmonds was on pace to break the all-time record for most rushing yards by an FCS running back until injuries hamstrung him in 2017, but the mighty back still ended his Rams' career with an incredible 5,862 yards on the ground and 67 touchdowns.
Edmonds' quickness and versatility out of the backfield would make him an absolute steal in the 2018 NFL Draft.
A former five-star prospect who appeared in 23 games with Auburn from 2014-15 and found the end zone a trio of times, Thomas really made his mark the past two seasons after transferring to the Gamecocks.
He finished his career at Jacksonville State with 1,847 yards and 20 touchdowns. His 13 rushing TDs led the Ohio Valley this past season while his 88.8-yards rushing per contest was the conference's second best.
He's also the master of the spin move.
