I hope you don't cop out and say Gio.
I'm not a big Gio fan. He is basically Ryan Williams to me, injury history and all. I like Eddie Lacy a lot if he declares. A big bruiser with balance and the type of athletic ability to punish you for hitting him. Much more so than a Stepfan Taylor. I toss Le'Veon Bell in there too, though without the injury history. Just don't really see his upside as a 300 carry back.
I don't disagree, it isn't great at the top, but I think there are a number of backs who can be the "lead" back in an RBBC and have good careers. In no part. order Mike Gillislee, Montee Ball, Ray Graham, Knile Davis, Stepfon Taylor, Dennis Johnson. They all won't be that, but could in the right situation and blocking scheme.
As for other underclassmen, I like Jawan Jamison and Joseph Randle a lot too as do everything backs who, once again, need the right system but can excel. Apparently Cierre Wood is also close to declaring and he a lot of talent.
Heck, I didn't even mention Marcus Lattimore. Some real talent here if you need a RB and it won't require a high pick.
To get back on topic, I need to watch more of Rouse. Fresno is high on my list to watch during this winter break, but he sounds like the type of player I generally like at the RB position.
