18 drafted and 7 top 100


1.


2. Leonard Fournette  LSU 6'1 240 top pick in 2015 late 1st in 2016 with lingering health issues..which player are you getting? likely both...that 2015 player was special.  elite power/speed and moves combo when healthy  looked slow in 2016 showe up heavy at Shrine work ethic? 



Davin Cook Florida St 5'10 210 speed/balance combo not an elite blocker or receiver undersized for a feature back but makes WOW! runs  reminds me of a slower Marshall Faulk some bust potential


3.Alvin Kamara 5'10 214 Tennesee Alabama transfer from JC junior 3rd down back/pr  very athletic  flashes power and quickness to be a #1 rb


4 Christian McCaffrey Stanford 5'11 202 elite vision, understanding how how to set up blocks, patience and burst...still a gadget player needing a  Josh McDaniels type OC to use him as a weapon  not a wr or feature back



5. Joe Mixon Oklahoma 6'1 226  hit a woman after she hit him twice...not going to bury the young man after losing his temper and doing something stupid at the age of 18.  as a rb has the weight to be an feature back, solid pass a pass receiver and in pass pro runs through arm tackles




6 Kareem Hunt Toledo 510  216  fast powerful, relentless Senior bowl rushed for 1355  in 2016 and 4,825 yards in his career runs angry like Jay Ajayi  pff top-graded HB in CFB last season & forced 76 missed tackles as a runner, 2nd most


7 D'Onta Foreman Texas  6' 1/20 233 ist team Big 12, was the nation's leading rusher and totaled 2,028 yards on the ground despite playing in just 11 games. He averaged 184.4 yards per game in 2016 shades of Marshawn Lynch with his light feet and ability to find holes and power over people..just lacks great speed


8. Curtis Samuel Ohio St 5'11 200 similar to McCaffrey but not as talented.  3rd down back, very fast


9. Jamaal Williams  BYU 6'0 212 9 5/8 30 1/2 has starter ability  but would be elite #2 back  strong, fast Nfl body, good speed solid pass pro  plays angry


10. Brian Hill 5'11 220  mean  loves to run over people or block..just wants to hit someone  good enough speed to start.  elite #2  back


11.Samaje Perine Oklahoma 5'11 235 not overly elusive straight ahead runner all academic productive 2409 yards over the last 2 years


12 Wayne Gallman,Clemson 6'0 215 quick feet, good vision/eyes solid rb just lacks elite power  solid not great feature back prospect

Elijah McGuire RB UL-Layafette 5'10 216 good kid speed


13 Elijah Hood North Carolina 5'11 220 Alla academic class kid powerful runner, loves contact lacks breakaway speed.  Great #2 back

13 Marlon Mack ucf  6'1 210 very fast lacks power but very fast  good change of pace back
14.JOSEPH WILLIAMS  UTAH 5106 202  very fast but  not overly  elusive 
15. Corey Clement  Wisconsin 5102 221 9 7/8 30 7/8

16 Jeremy McNichols Boise st  5'9 214  27 td very good receiver solid 3rd down back 


17De'Angelo Henderson Coastal Carolina 5'8 210  the NCAA Division record by scoring a touchdown in 35 consecutive games (all 14 games of 2014, all 12 games of 2015 all nine of his games in 2016). 2016 Walter Payton Award National Offensive Player of the Year Finalist ability to make 1st defender miss 

Aaron Jones Utep 5'9 208 very good receiver fast lacks upper body strength /legs to run through tackles


18 De'Veon Smith Michigan  5107 220 senior bowl shows some burst backup type 
19 Chris Carson Oklahoma St 6'1 218 JC kid injured 2016 but flashes real power receiving skills  attacks D players

20 Matt Dayes North Carolina State5085 207


21 Donnel Pumphrey San Diego State 5'8 176 elite small rb
