PROJECTED 2013 SEASON STATS

2013 Projections1325874.44862086
2013 Outlook: Tate has been a tough player to figure. He missed all of his rookie year with a broken ankle. In '11, he was perhaps the best backup runner in football. But last year he was largely a nonfactor. Injuries have been a big part of the problem, but Tate wasn't all that effective even when he did play (seven games of 20 rushing yards or fewer in '12). Coach Gary Kubiak says he expects a lot more out of Tate in '13, and it's a contract year. Plus Arian Foster wasn't able to play a single snap of preseason ball, giving Tate a chance to show his wares. If you draft Foster early, you have no choice but to reach for Tate, too.
2. Chris Ogbonnaya, Cle RBYEARRUSHYDSAVGTDRECYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics8303.8024187013
2013 Projections492084.2130226046
2013 Outlook: Ogonnaya has seen some passing-down work for the Browns over the past couple seasons, but could be relied upon for more than that in '13. As of this writing, he's pretty much the last veteran standing in Cleveland; we expect that he'll already spell Trent Richardson some on third downs, and should T-Rich get hurt, Ogbonnaya would probably play a big part in replacing him. He's by no means a Richardson handcuff, but he's in the mix.
3. Willis McGahee, Cle RBYEARRUSHYDSAVGTDRECYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics1677314.44262210106
2013 Projections853634.321176053
2013 Outlook: McGahee will be 32 in October and lost the final six games of last season because of a broken leg, and when the Broncos drafted Montee Ball in April, the writing was on the wall. This summer, McGahee will seek to latch on somewhere as a veteran part of a platoon. When healthy, he moves the pile, has a bit of agility left, and is very good in pass protection. But wherever he lands, we'd expect him to serve more as a mentor than a bell cow.
