These top 10 prospects, on average, stay in the league longer than the average NFL running back. Can we agree on that?

and can we agree that the running backs who have the most success are the higher drafted, heavier ones?

Because, if we can, then we can understand that that data was put in place in the first place to refute your claim: edit: that i agree with, but not to the extent that it covered the weight differential in our original argument

c'mon son.
