RB Ranks

Postby Kareighuis » Thu Jan 07, 2010 4:20 pm

One of the websites I frequent posted a ranking of draft-eligible RBs at the mid-point of the college season. This is how they ranked them-

walterfootball wrote:1- Jahvid Best, California
2- CJ Spiller, Clemson
3- Johnathan Dwyer, GA Tech
4- Ryan Matthews, Fresno
5- Anthony Dixon, Miss State
6- Evan Royster, Penn State
7- Toby Gerhart, Stanford
8- Montario Hardesty, Tennessee
9- Charles Scott, LSU
10- Noel Devine, WVU
11- Andre Anderson, Tulane
12- Joe McKnight, USC
13- DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma
14- Javarris James, Miami
15- Keith Toston, OK State
16- Keiland Williams, LSU
17- Chris Brown, Oklahoma
18- Michael Smith, Arkansas
19- Ben Tate, Auburn
20- Brandon James, Florida


A couple of things jump out at me. Gerhart, an eventual Heisman finalist, isn't top-5. Where's Blount? I've seen McKnight much higher.

If you were to redo this list, how would you correct it?

Take Royster off the list - he is apparently returning to Penn State for his season year.

C.J. Spiller over Best - Spiller is Chris Johnson lite. Southern Cal RB Stafon Johnson really needs to be on the list. U Conn RB Andre Dixon is another omission. Also don't forget James Starks of Buffalo who was injured shortly before the 2009 season started. Starks is a BEAST - he's listed at 6-2 and 211 lbs. and obviously has room to add weight to his frame. 8-o

Joique Bell could be an interesting sleeper...he won the D2 Hiesman equivalent. looks like he has some decent size (6'1", 223lbs) but 40 time is only 4.55...read somewhere that he is training to get down to a 4.4 though. kid sounds like a great athlete though and if he impresses at the combine could get a look somewhere...looks like he has some decent hands too

watching him run down this DB on a failed 2pt conversion makes me thinks he's got some breakaway speed

I would love for them to due 40 times with and without normal playing equipment. Sometimes there is a world of difference between 40 times and footbal speed.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

What are the odds of Spiller actually being a fantasy force?
Moreno was a first rounder and he is not amongst my six keepers for next year.

So far, my Shonn Green pick up seems to be a better fantasy investment.

I'm not sold on Timmy as a "Elite" draft prospect. Despite Flordia working him under center SOME this past year, he did spend a majority of the year in shotgun. His accuracy is in question (yes, low INTs blah blah blah... This is due to him taking off instead of throwing the ball in tight spaces). His mechanics are horrible. I've really watched his delivery during the senior bowl practices this week and have been horrified by them. His delivery is loooonggggg and sloowwwwww. His footwork is choppy (a norm for running QBs). He's like a more physically gifted, less accurate Alex Smith in terms of mechanics and presence inside a pocket. The team that takes him will have an aging and/or serviceable QB in place. Timmy will come in to learn and work on his mechanics and run the wildcat for a couple years. He is several years away from being a starting QB, and that's only if he works to get better as a passing QB.

some team (probably Jacksonville) will give him a shot, maybe toy with the wilcat or something. he'll probably be out of football in 3 years unless he switches to H-back or something like that

Tebow will be a disappointment unless a team turns their offense into a Gator style offense
