This was an odd year for running backs. After Najee Harris, Travis Etienne and Javonte Williams, everyone else is a wild card. Sermon may be the biggest one of those. He had a huge end to the season before getting injured in the National Championship game, but still remains a bit of an enigma. On the plus side, running backs in a Shanahan offense have to be taken seriously. While the 49ers already have Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and Wayne Gallman, none of those players have every truly established themselves as the alpha back. While Sermon has a long way to go in order to earn playing time, he could be very productive in this run-centric scheme and he's going to be a popular rookie pick in the second or third rounds this off-season.
