  • RB's

    Outside of Mcfadden being the top RB in the draft, how would y'all rank the other RB's coming out or potentially coming out for the draft?

    I think mine would be
    1) Darren Mcfadden
    2) Steve Slaton
    3) Jamaal Charles
    4) Jonathan Stewart
    5) Felix Jones
    6) Ray Rice
    7) Allen Patrick
    8) Mike Hart
    9) Ryan Torain
    10) Tashard Choice


    I know that I'm leaving RB Kevin Smith off the list. I know he's good, but I've never seen him play and don't know much about him. So.. I'm leaving him off the list, not b/c I don't think he's good enough, I'm just not sure where to put him?

    If I went 10 deep, as of now, I'd go

    1. Darren McFadden - Arguably the only elite talent in the draft.
    2. Rashard Mendenhall - 40 times will be critical. Probably needs a mid-4.4 number.
    3. Jonathan Stewart - 40 times will be critical. Probably needs a low 4.5 number.
    4. Felix Jones - If he comes out, which I don't think he should and as of now, don't expect, he'll draw a lot of intrigue.
    5. Steve Slaton - I'm not big on him ... doesn't mean he doesn't hold intrigue for a lot of folks.
    5. Ray Rice - 40 times will be key.
    7. Kevin Smith - I'd put him higher on a personal board.
    8. Chris Johnson - Coming into his own ... but is he an everydown back?
    9. Jamaal Charles - Stock is rising and could go higher.
    10. James Davis -Tough back with some pop to guy with size.

    Granted, 9 juniors in the list, and a few are going to stay back. If I added an 11th and 12th, it'd likely be Mike Hart and Tashard Choice in some order.

        I think it's between Mendenhall and Stewart (assuming both come out) and really depends on what the specific teams are looking for.


        Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

          Well he has major injury concerns and isn't the explosive athlete that Adrian Peterson was last year.

            Its not so much that he is falling.. its just Rashard is rising FAST on boards because he has proven he is one hell of a back

                Thats basically how i would put it aswell... all those backs are extremly good and htere is a nice mix.. There are athletes that are great prospects.. then there is great players who wont be necessarily the best prospects ever.. but give you the same effort week in and week out and have produced consitently

                    From an outsiders perspective, I would put Smith above Slaton and Davis. I would put him above Jones too b/c I have a lot of questions about Jones....

                      ive been to all the home games for UCF
                      Smith is good
                      2,100yds and 25tds in one season
                      he doesnt play against Top talent, and doesnt have elite speed
                      but he has great vision, footwork, and strength

                            3rd group- Smith, Rice, Davis
                            4th group-Hart, Slaton, Charles

                              I hear some people like Matt Forte from Tulane as a fullback. I haven't seen him play at all this year, but his numbers are off the chart. Why isn't he getting more hype?
