Coming in at number 4 we have former Penn State football running back Miles Sanders. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft, he was picked 53rd overall.
On March 15th, 2023 the Carolina Panthers signed Miles Sanders to a 4-year $25.4 million contract.
He has had an incredible journey in his young career. He also recently played in his first super bowl where he and the Eagles fell short to the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 2018, Miles finally had his opportunity to take over as the lead running back for the Penn State football team. He sure took advantage of that opportunity as he racked up 1,274 yards and 9 touchdowns in the 2018 season alone.
Due to the low amount of carries he had during his college career, and the dominance he showed during his 2018 season the Eagles took him in the second round. During his career with the Eagles, he racked up 3,708 yards and 20 rushing touchdowns.
The Carolina Panthers are building something special from the ground up and they currently hold the #1 pick in the 2023 NFL draft, so Miles could be introduced to a new rookie quarterback if that’s the direction they go in.
