Jeremy Langford showed a lot of promise last season when he filled in for Matt Forte following an injury. In the two games following Forte's absence, Langford had a combined 324 yards and three touchdowns. He even went on a streak of rushing for a touchdown in four straight games.
Now Forte is gone, and Langford is expected to take over as the starter. Even when Forte returned last season, Langford showed excellent production while sharing touches, averaging 83 total yards per game over the final nine weeks.
While Langford is expected to start, he has some competition. Chicago selected Jordan Howard in the fifth round, a talented, powerful running back. There's also Jacquizz Rodgers and Ka'Deem Carey fighting for touches on the roster.
In addition, there should be some doubt towards his skills. He averaged 3.6 yards per carry in 2015, which was fourth-worst among 44 backs with at least 100 rushing attempts. There's not a characteristic of his game that makes you jump out of your seat.
If a more talented back was in Langford's position, he'd probably be worth taking in higher rounds. There's a lot of excitement surrounding Langford simply because he was good enough last season, and is going to start this year.
Assuming he stays healthy and maintains his starting role, he should at least be a solid RB2.
