Everybody is blocking for Maryland's running backs, even the receivers

"The best part about being 4-0, is the chance to go 5-0."

There's no hiding the depth at running back for the Maryland Terrapins. The unit has already amassed nearly a thousand rushing yards in just four games, with a committee of talented backs at D.J. Durkin's disposal.

In their most recent depth chart, six running backs were listed as co-starters in the back field, including sophomore Ty Johnson, who was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 200 yards behind just seven carries against Purdue. Talent aside, the blocking they've gotten from their wide receivers has been crucial to the ground attack for Walt Bell this season.

Watch what Bell, Johnson and receiver D.J. Moore have to say about how the receiving unit is helping the ground attack flourish.
