2007 Marshawn Lynch Rookie Card Checklist

By

Filling the shoes of a great athlete is never easy, but Marshawn Lynch has already done it twice. The Buffalo Bills running back has carved out his own identity in short order, and looks like he'll be a Pro Bowl-caliber runner for some time to come.

As a freshman at Cal in 2004, Lynch opened some eyes as a backup to J.J. Arrington, who ran for over 2000 yards that season. Lynch took over at the start of the next season, and by the time he left school after his junior year, scouts considered him one of the top running back prospects for the 2007 NFL Draft.

The Bills agreed, selecting Lynch 12th overall. Again he was counted on to replace some solid production - this time from Willis McGahee - and again he delivered. He became the first Buffalo rookie back in over 20 years to top 1000 yards, racking up 1115 yards on the ground despite missing three games due to injury.

Lynch can run with both speed and power, and has soft enough hands to play a part in the passing game if need be. He even threw a touchdown pass during his rookie season, and it's that kind of versatility that helps to set him apart from his peers.

Collectors noticed Lynch's talent almost immediately, and he settled in as the second most collected back from the class of 2007 behind Adrian Peterson. That means some of his rookie cards have already achieved some solid values, though if he can stay healthy and perform at the same high level, the small but loyal Buffalo market could help them climb down the road. Some of Lynch's autographed rookies are fairly scarce - his Donruss Gridiron Gear # 201, Donruss Threads # 252 and Ultimate Collection # 107 are all numbered to 100 or less.
