Rashard Mendenhall Stats At 200 Carry Mark


Second year running back has now carried the ball 213 times in his young NFL career. I thought I would compile his stats for his first 200 carries and compare them to the some other running backs currently in the NFL at the same point in their careers at the 200 carry mark. You can see that Mendenhall is some great company at this point. He is 7th in yards and yards per carry thus far compared to the others at the same point. I also listed the stats of Willie Parker as well through 200 carries and as you can see, he has edged out Willie so far. I will examine these stats again after the season ends as Mendenhall should have 300 plus carries by then. It is way too early to get a firm hold on what Mendenhall may become, but as of right now, you would have to say things are looking promising going forward.
