We all love rankings and trying to figure out the best prospects in this year’s draft. No 2 evaluations offer the same opinions in this year’s draft especially. My question though, would be to any expert evaluation is this:
What will be the results of this nfl draft class of RB’s 10 years from now.
No one can really make a good argument against Fournette hear, unless your offense fits better with Joe Mixon and want to utilize his talents as opposed to Leonard’s, therefore a team could wait on a later pick to get Mixon. I will just focus on highlights in this post to focus on the potential of this Back Class:
Fournette has the tremendous overall power, speed, awareness, and other intangible evidence to show he is a starting back in the NFL, as probably one of the best in coming years.
While one may try to judge his character, and that will have to be developed, no one can argue the rare top ten pick caliber player Mixon can be at the next leve. I thought about going to another “Safer pick” here but the risk is worth the reward here for many offenses, including New England, as I am sure they would love to have this ability if they perhaps needed it.
If you can forgive the cafe’, you can realize the potential.
So that this RB may be an asset for a long time for a team, he needs to be used as an all-purpose back while he lasts. He played a lot as the feature back there, comparable to Reggie Bush. McCaffrey has though, more straight line running and receiving ability, and can master the next level, as prepared by the coaching to handle that.
Every time this RB touches the ball, there is a breakaway of a threat to NFL Defenses.
Here’s where most people may well disagree with the ranking. I tend not to watch too much film to be honest before I see what I am getting. That means it does not take too long to see the upside of the RB in this case, putting on the film, right away gets you excited for this guy.
Gallmans’ highlights show how quick he hits holes, and can gather himself easily out of cuts around the line. What ability!
You can attain what you want out of Kamara this year, and perhaps have a starting RB. overall he is good. He does not have the real threat of ability that will scare defenses, but he can help team with depth, and replacement of starter ability right away.
Simply put, he can ball based on overall ability to find the endzone.
Dalvin Cook shows a lot of skill on the field, died well in the combine, especially in receiving skills, but lacks the overall intangibles that I would expect out of a 1st round caliber talent. Her’s the film:
Cook shows nice ability to get around edges for nice gains consistently, hoping he can do the same at the next level.
Hunt shows enough quickness, lateral and breakaway speed, as well as utility type of qualities to be an all around player in the next league as shown here:
He was a productive player that scored a lot in the MAC conference.
Mack has what basically a lot of NFL teams are looking for in ability and tendency to move the chains and gain first downs with a good combine performace.
He seems like he will be a storng elusive runner at the next level.
McNochols shows good polished promise as an inside and outside runner with enough elusiveness to make cuts and get to the edge, finding the end zone.
To get this guy in later rounds, as is probably the case, makes for one the best RB drafts in years.
As one of the better runners between the tackles, this kid can also come in right away at least on sub packages and dish out blows to a defense, as he has the potential for beast like 1000 yard year performances. Any comparisons come to mind?
The big back, may be ready for some team to utilize the talents of a back like this on a regular basis, even in his rookie year.
