Blake Corum had the best season by a running back Pro Football Focus has ever graded
Blake Corum just had the best individual season from a running back in the Pro Football Focus era.
The Michigan star earned a 96.2 offensive grade from PFF for his 2022 campaign. That’s the best grade PFF has ever given a running back. (The company started grading college players in 2014.)

Corum finished top-10 nationally in rushing yards per game. He was a serious Heisman threat until an injury forced him to miss the Big Ten Championship Game and the College Football Playoff semifinal against TCU.
He revealed earlier this month he had a torn meniscus and a sprained MCL, sustained late in the first half of the Illinois game on Nov. 19. Corum played against Ohio State but saw very little action, recording just 2 carries for 6 yards before hobbling off the field.
That injury also paved the way for a return to Ann Arbor in 2023. A healthy year in 2023 and Michigan will have the best running back in all of college football lining up in its backfield.
