Brett Morse for Iowa. Morse has started since he was a RS Soph and is now a RS Senior. He was the starting FB for Shonn Greene's huge year. But I am biased.



Wisconsin always has huge FBs.

Edit: Except this year I guess they're not that big.

Stanfords Owen Marecic is exactly like that. He is a hard nosed blocker and exactly what you look for in a classic fullback. In the last Notre Dame game, ND started sending linebackers to cut block him and accept giving up a defender. He is a big reason Stanford runs the ball so well.

i will look for both guys in future games.
would like it if the bucs would add a true FB next year which can really help us in the run-game

Brett Morse will likely play in the NFL for awhile. I doubt he'll be drafted.

Day One Pick

Pitt's Henry Hynoski, but he's a junior. He was one of the all-time leading rushers in Pennsylvania high school history, but has really settled in as a hard nosed throwback style FB.

FB Eric Stevens (RS) Sophomore from California gonna be a beast when he's a senior, maybe the 1st FB drafted in 2013

Marecic is the epitome of a FB, probably back to a time when they were really relevant in football. The guy will pound it, block, play special teams and can even fill in at linebacker. Make him a deep snapper at the next level and he can probably fill 3 roster spots.

Zach Boren is pretty beastly. Only a true sophomore. Best fullback OSU has had since Jamar Martin (and really the only true fullback since him).

What about Stanley Havili? He might play RB in the NFL but I don't know.

I'm totally bias but Anthony Sherman from UConn is pretty studly. Great blocker for two backs who racked up a ton of yardage in Donald Brown and Jordan Todman. He's also a great special teams player.

Like others have said Owen Marecic from Stanford is the freaking man, one of the best full back prospects I have seen in quite some time, note he is the only two way starter in Division 1 football!


Other guys that have not been mentioned yet are Devon Ramsey of UNC but he is a junior, still might come out. Preston Dial of Alabama is solid and so is Patrick DiMarco of South Carolina.


Stanley Havili of USC and Charles Clay of Tulsa are more the pass catching type of full backs, but still very rarely are there this many solid fullbacks in one draft. Heck these two type prospects have not come along in forever, name me the last pass catching full back out of college. One of these two could become the next Larry Centers.


Heath Evans, Brock Bolen or Jacob Hester maybe but they were all more versatile full backs that could run and catch a few passes but none were as productive as pass catches as Havili or Clay.



Still great group of full backs this year.

Isn't Preston Dial a tight end?

According to Alabama's website, he is indeed a tight end.

I believe Dial plays H-Back now, which is like a full back / tight end hybrid.

A third down receiving back. Ala Brian Leonard.

I really like Charles Clay. He's always impressed me the few times I've seen him play.

he seems too talented to be just used for that.

So did Brian Leonard.

If you want to see some highlights of Marecic just look at any of Toby Gerharts highlight tapes. Marecic consistently gets the one on one block to allow Gerhart to hit the hole. Just look for #48.

Some of the clips are redundant, but I love the ND game one.
