Running back Alfred Morris had a sensational rookie campaign in which he set multiple franchise and rookie rushing records. His 1,613 yards on the ground were good for second in the league behind only Adrian Peterson (NFL MVP). His 13 touchdowns ranked second in the NFL behind only three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro running back Arian Foster.
The list of extraordinary accomplishments goes on. To say the least, the sixth round rookie far surpassed everyone’s expectations.
That’s why, when Pro Football Focus (PFF) released their ‘Top 101 of 2012’, Morris cracked the list at number 38.
PFF is known for analyzing the next-level stats beyond the overall rushing yards accumulated and/or rushing touchdowns scored, so be sure to continue reading and find out why they came to the conclusion that they did.

So where did Williams rank, exactly?

Drops are one of the trickier stats in the NFL, because one man’s drop is another man’s incomplete pass. Determining if a pass was ‘catchable’ is a judgment on the part of the stats crew, and is rarely a black and white discussion.
With that being said, the Redskins had one of each in their top two receivers catching honors: Jabar Gaffney, for his ridiculously good hands this season, and Santana Moss for being uncharacteristically shaky.
Here’s a look at the numbers, with a possible explanation for the failures. Read more »
