Road to the NFL Draft: LaMichael James

Former Oregon running back LaMichael James has been working out at the Athletes' Performance Institute in Los Angeles, California in preparation for the NFL Combine and Draft.

One of the most highly recognized names at this year's NFL Combine is that of former Oregon running back, LaMichael James.

James, who left Eugene as Oregon's career rushing leader, chose to forgo his final year of eligibility in order to declare for the 2012 NFL Draft.

Though James racked up the accolades during his time with the Ducks, including the 2010 Doak Walker Award (given to the nation's most outstanding running back) and was named the 2011 Pac-12 Championship Game's Most Valuable Player, he isn't resting on his laurels when it comes to the next level.

The running back has been training at the Athletes' Performance Institute in Los Angeles, California for the past few months, working to be in the best possible shape for this year's NFL Combine.

With only a few months to go until this year's Draft, FOX Sports NEXT gets to know James a little better:
