Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey is arguably the best at his position in the nation. In 2015, the star sophomore ran for 2,019 yards and eight touchdowns on 337 carries - averaging over six yards per rush. But many believe McCaffrey, who finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting a year ago, isn't getting his due.
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, a gifted player himself, thinks that McCaffrey's status as a white running back is to blame. He took to Twitter Friday afternoon to tell fans not to judge McCaffrey for being a white runner. It's a comment that's sure to raise a few eyebrows.

Regardless of his race, it'll be interesting to see whether McCaffrey's skills translate at the next level.
