Rank these rookie RB's...

Postby Plindsey88 » Tue Mar 16, 2004 4:55 pm

In the order I would rank them, the top running back prospects are:

Steven Jackson, Oregon State
Kevin Jones, VA Tech
Maurice Clarett, Ohio State
Greg Jones, FL State
Michael Turner, No. Illinois
Chris Perry, Michigan
Tatum Bell, OK State
Derrick Knight, Boston College
Cedric Cobbs, Arkansas
Fred Russell, Iowa
Julius Jones, Notre Dame

What do you guys think? How would you rank them? And how many of these are even close to potential fantasy prospects in a keeper league?

I appreciate the help... ;-D

I'm going to rank only the ones that may actually be close to potential fantasy prospects.

Steven Jackson
Kevin Jones
Chris Perry
Greg Jones

Stephen Jackson, Oregon State
Kevin Jones, VA Tech
Greg Jones, Florida State
Michael Turner, No. Illinois
Tatum Bell, OK State
Cedric Cobbs, Arkansas
Julius Jones, Notre Dame
Maurice Clarett, Ohio State
Chris Perry, Michigan
Derrick Knight, Boston College
Fred Russell, Iowa

The top three could win up being interchangeable depending on what team each is drafted on. Otherwise, all I can say is that I'm not a fan of Chris Perry at all and don't think he'll amount to much - in case you were wondering about the low ranking...

I think Michael Turner has a good shot at making some noise next season (depending on where he goes, of course).

True. This all depends on where they end up. For instance, Chris Perry as a Steeler is better than Steven Jackson as a Chief.

I love Michael Turner. Of course the team has a ton to do with their success, but I think he could be a steal in the draft for a team. Being a later pick, it may take a couple of seasons or an injury for him to get his chance, but he has tremendous potential.

But, for next season impact:
Kevin Jones
Stephen Jackson
Chris Perry
Greg Jones
Cedrick Cobbs
(of course this is a major crapshoot at this point before the draft)

Those would be my picks. But like VHawk said, it mainly depends where they go.
