Oregon State RB Jermar Jefferson has an injury history. Many/most college RB's do. Bradshaw did (Along with swiping some other kid's Play Station, if I recall.) Some don't; I don't remember Barkley being injured in school. Of course everyone wants that bullet proof RB that's guaranteed. But the point is there aren't any guaranties as to whether injuries, or a lack thereof, will assure an ability or inability to contribute on an NFL roster.
Jefferson might be a 3rd round pick, but his history will likely drop him to later in the draft. Despite that history, if he can pass the physical, I like him later in the draft as a potential solid RB prospect. Tough nosed, talented, and productive when he's played, with a 6.5 yard average in 2020.
