2017 RB-p Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Date:
April 24, 2017

2017 NFL Draft Running Back (P) Grades/Rankings (2.0)

Updated grades on the RB-p group. 

A few notes on our 2.0 rankings...

-- Leonard Fournette is one of those rare species of humans...240-pounds (at the Combine) and ran a 4.51 40-time. That's insane at that size. That likely means a 4.45 at 230-235 pounds? Sub-4.40 if he goes to 228-230, maybe? A freak.

-- Kareem Hunt is a sneaky great RB prospect. Fantastic footwork that will likely be overlooked because he does not have breakaway speed. He might also be the best 'bigger' RB prospect in the passing game.

-- Joe Mixon is a solid NFL talent, but we don't trust his mindset. Dorial Green-Beckham was supposedly too good an athlete to pass up despite his issues. Off-field matters. I'll take Samaje Perine every time over Mixon.

-- Joel Bouagnon is my favorite deeper sleeper. Put Northern Iowa QB Aaron Bailey in there as well. A terrific athlete converting to RB...a high-end runner at 6'0"/230+.

-- Wayne Gallman is a stiff, but has terrific hands...he might have NFL usefulness. He may be moved to WR.
