I'm looking for the top guys that will be in the 2012 draft. Who has the best hands out of the backfield?

Although I dislike the guy, but LaMichael James is a pretty good pass catcher.

James, Richardson, and Miller are all pretty good prospects in terms of being able to catch the ball as receivers.

In no order:

LaMichael James, Jeff Demps, Isaiah Pead, David Wilson, Chris Rainey

Chris Polk of Washington needs to be in the top 5 if not at the top of the list.

Chris Polk is a guy I've grown to really like as a prospect. I think he's going to be a very pleasant surprise for whichever team drafts him. I'm a fan, myself.

I'm biased as a Husky fan but as i've said i'd rather take him in the second round than any of the others in the first round, maybe that's just me.

Polk's one of my favorites, too. From his scout.com profile as a HS senior:

"Last season while starring at tailback, wide out, and defensive back, Chris Polk rushed for 384 yards on 62 carries and had 62 receptions for 1,167 yards, and a total of 23 touchdowns (11 rushing/12 receiving)...

"Polk: "I’m very aggressive and go to the ball. I play wide receiver like a running back and will come at you and run you over. But I also have good finesse and am a good runner.

"I want to work on my route running and not just use my speed so much. I need to improve my feet." "

Seems like he was actually anticipating being a wide receiver in college. I like him a lot in the second round, maybe even late first. Think he'll be a solid starter and a Pro Bowler in the right situation. I like the Matt Forte comparisons, but I think Polk is a bit more physical. Forte's more of a slider.

Could pretty easily see him going to the Pats or the Packers at the end of the first round, two teams that A) throw a lot and B) lack a strong, versatile running back. both those teams platoon depending on what they're doing; Polk would make those offenses more unpredictable because he brings so much to the table. He's probably my #2 behind Richardson, but like I think Babylon said, I'd rather have Polk in the second than Richardson in the first.

Rodney Steward should be a big weapon in the screen game in the NFL until he gets broken in half. kinda like a Quizz Rogers very elusive little water bug.
