    For RBs... it's ALL about the thighs. McKnight lacks the same kind of bulk. He's more a dynamic type.
    I think he was sayin that all these RBs were taken after the 1st round and proved to 32 front offices that what whatever flaws they saw in their game, it didn't hamper their NFL success...

    Tree trunk legged Jamaal Charles. And Chris Johnson, the oak-legged RB for the Titans.

    Knight is injured all the time, looks smaller than 200#, and is probably more quick than fast.

    I could see him dropping well into the 5th round because of the recent track record of USC RBs in the pros.

    Maybe. I don't think he's as a fast and accelerates like Charles but they're rather similar.

    Exactlly!!! I've been saying this for years, and it's the main reason I was so down on Bush and McFadden as prospects. Chicken legs almost automatically means limited pro potential as a runningback in the NFL.

    There's a huge difference between short and small. MJD and Rice are short, but built like brickhouses which actually works in their favor. McKnight, Bush, and McFadden are all average or above average in height and build, but have absolutely no weight in their legs.

    It's going to be a very deep one I feel. I think the top of the draft could still be dominated by seniors outside of the QBs perhaps, but I think there will be as high of quality guys still available early in the 3rd round as in the late 1st probably. A very strong 2nd and 3rd tier of players i think.

    Gore had injury problems that pushed him down while Drew and Rice were both considered smallish complimentary backs who've hit the pro game hard....I don't see them as very good comparisons as some others have said.

    I see Percy Harvin as maybe a closer comparison skills-wise. College hybrid types who won't be full time runners in the pros.

    But I don't think McKnight will crack the first round obviously. With some great workouts, i could see him slip into the 2nd. I'd say a 3rd rounder atm.

    I think after the workouts he could rise to a first round pick.

    "If I would have come back it would have been to pursue the Heisman,"

    Hahaha whatever Joe is drinking, he should put it down. A heisman for McKnight is nothing more than a pipe dream.
    His career at SC will go down as nothing more than a dissapointment. I compare him to former Penn State ATH Derrick Williams, highly touted with all the physical skill but could never live up to his potential.
    If he performs well in Indy I could see him going as high as late 2nd, but safe bet would have him somewhere in the 3rd.

    He said the only reason he would come back is to win the Heisman? Nice sounds like a pretty selfish guy IMO

    He will be a steal for some team in the 3rd

    I agree. I would like seeing him as a Packer in the second or 3rd
