      There are going to be a couple teams in round 2 that end up with one hell of a runningback.

        Other than DMac,Stewart,and Slaton do you think there will be any other junior RBs that declare?

          In fact, there are at least six junior running backs who, if they opted to come out early, would immediately jump ahead of the current #1 senior Mike Hart in my running back rankings for the 2008 NFL Draft.
          I don't expect Scott to know exactly who is going to declare, but I'm pretty sure he thinks if any junior RBs declare it will be most likely from these 10 guys.

            Can I assume that the #1 next to Jonathan Stewart's name is a typo, or do you have him rated on the same level as McFadden?

              Obviously a typo, but I don't think Stew is as far behind McFadden as people think.

                  Interesting list. I tend to have Mendenhall as 2nd right now, and I think Rashard could be a top 15 pick. I'd have Kevin Smith a tad higher, even if he only runs in the mid-4.5's.

                    Just me personally, but I think Charles and Ray Rice should be ahead of James Davis, who I really like too.

                    How could anyone go wrong with Felix Jones, Steve Slaton, or Rashard Mendenhall? Total toss up there for me.

                        I would love to see miami snag Kevin Smith in the 3rd or 4th round to get a good backup to ronnie brown for the future some protecton since he is injury prone

                          Anyone think Andre Brown will actually declare? IF he does, he's one of the guys whose going to pass the eye ball test and most other tests at the combine. Hopefully he can run at least a 4.5.

                          If he does, he'll be a steal for someone.

                              after breaking his foot this season, I highly doubt it. Baker and Brown have actually been outplayed by Jamelle Eugene this year. A Brian Westbrook type back at 5-9 200 with great receiving skills. Not a burner by any means, but will consistently get you the 3, 4, 5 yard runs and break off a 20 yarder every now and then.

                              Andre Brown's biggest concern, to me at least, would be his propensity to look for the homerun every time he touches the ball. He'll take a loss running laterally just to try to take it to the edge instead of picking up a good 4 yards running downhill. Brown is going to be a big boom or bust type player, but he'll definitely turn heads during workouts. He'll clock in the lower 4.4's to upper 4.3's. A less heralded Ronnie Brown maybe?
