Michigan's Vincent Smith is a potential UDFA sleeper. He's small and lacks top end speed, but his willingness to block and great hands make him a good 3rd down back. Think a much lesser version of Sproles. He is not worth a draft pick.

84 carries
640 yards
7.6 YPC
5 TDs

19 receptions
201 yards


Thats with him splitting alot of the carries with James Wilder Jr.


Really sux he tore his ACL.
Is it just me that thinks the skill position players in this draft are Meh. I wouldnt want to take a RB or a WR early. The QB's I wouldnt want to risk my career on 1 of them taking them in the top 10

I think last years (skill positions) were/are the same as last year...I wouldn't take a WR until the mid-late teens and a Back some time after that...but it only takes one guy to have a good combine for the media to get a hold of one name.

Toledo RB David Fluellen (JR) with his 3rd 200-yard rushing game this season. Guy reminds me a bit of Matt Forte and Bernard Pierce (who also came from the MAC).

I kind of like Michael Ford from LSU. A guy who doesn't have a ton of use on him since he splits carries 3 ways. Ford has a 6.0 YPC in the SEC. It always seems like a SEC back or two gets under drafted and ends up making a nice impact on an NFL roster. If you want to run the the SEC you better pack a lunch... I like those guys.

I'm a big fan of Rex Burkhead's game. Tough runner. Sees the hole and explodes through it. Shifty. Faster than people think. If we hadn't just drafted Bernerd Pierce I'd be all over him.

Well Knile Davis has declared for the draft.

Guess we'll see how that pans out...he should blow up the combine but i would still be surprised if he goes anywhere before the 6th

Montee Ball definitely isn't a sleeper, but at this point in time (and figuring he probably isn't going to wow anyone in offseason workouts), where do you see Ball ending up grading out round-wise? It seems people either love him or hate him as a prospect.

I am interested in him as a ZBS back to spell Jamaal Charles and am really interested in finding out where he could be projected to go considering some of the other backs in the draft (including juniors that could/are declaring).

Is the third round too low for Ball all things considered?

I'd go with a lesser version of Kevin Faulk. Hopefully he at least gets a shot as an UDFA.

Yea, I'd take a flier on Thompson as a UDFA but that injury history is too scary for me to draft him. As sleeper HBs, I still stand by Dennis Johnson and Latavius Murray as my picks. Also think Knile Davis still has a lot of potential in a ZBS.

jrry,
Is Murray really around 6'-3"? I have seen that his listed height on several sites. How would you grade his running style? At anywhere above 6'-0", I would think there would be the concern of having a more upright running style than preferred.

Also, I might as well as you about Montee Ball. Do you think he could end up being available in round 3 or do you think he will likely go higher irregardless of the juniors that declare?

He's probably around 6'2". His running style is upright but he doesn't run the way his size would suggest. This isn't a Steven Jackson type running style, it's more an Arian Foster type running style. He has very quick feet, great burst to the hole and has elite vision. When he gets to the 2nd level, he creates more based on his elusiveness and quick feet than power. He can run through arm tackles and has a stiff arm but because of how he runs, he doesn't take as much punishment as most big guys do.

However, the issue you'll always have with big backs are the nagging lower leg injuries and he has had some of those in college.

I think he can be effective in any system, could be elite in a ZBS system that stresses cutback lanes like the Texans do.

But I think Murray will do quite well in the NFL as the #1 HB in a 1-2 punch. It'll help keep him healthy.

I don't see him going higher than Round 3.

I wouldn't call Randle a sleeper, I'd say he's flying way under the radar and should be on of the top two backs taken.

My sleeper is Eddie Lacy. I never see him talked about and see him go rounds 3-4 in mocks.

Here's where I'm going to turn in to a homer for a minute...I think both Theo Riddick and Cierre Wood can contribute to teams at the next level.

Theo's got a role as a Kevin Faulk/Danny Woodhead type utility back- the kind that won't be highly coveted and cost a high pick, but will make a roster and make teams glad they kept him around.

Cierre is going to test very well and is coming out without much wear and tear on him, which is becoming a bigger and bigger issue with scouts every year.
