NFL Draft Position Breakdown – RB Edition

Position Outlook

Position Rank amongst different positions:

  • Prime-Finish Expertise – tenth (of 11)
  • Depth – sixth
  • 1st Spherical Caliber Gamers – 0 (tenth)
  • General – tenth

This place isn’t like different years. There isn’t any elite expertise, like a Saquon Barkley, Todd Gurley, or Ezekiel Elliott, and it isn’t almost as much as the caliber of the legendary 2017 RB Draft Class. Nonetheless, there are many gamers to get enthusiastic about, and I anticipate a number of gamers from this class to be high quality NFL starters, on the very least.

The consensus RB1 has earned it. As an ultra-productive CFB participant with elite athleticism, there are virtually no holes in his sport

Prime 10 Rating

  1. Breece Corridor ISU – Full Scouting Report
  2. Dameon Pierce FLA – Full Scouting Report
  3. Rachaad White ASU – Full Scouting Report
  4. Isaiah Spiller TA&M – Full Scouting Report
  5. Hassan Haskins MICH – Full Scouting Report
  6. James Cook dinner UGA – Full Scouting Report
  7. Kyren Williams ND – Full Scouting Report
  8. Pierre Robust Jr. SDSU – Full Scouting Report
  9. Brian Robinson Jr. ALA – Full Scouting Report
  10. Kenneth Walker III MSU – Full Scouting Report

Other than having Corridor because the RB1, there isn’t a lot that’s assured with this place. Even that, actually, isn’t a big hole between RB1 and RB2. Many gifted gamers are flying far below the radar.
The tiers might be cut up principally in half right here, as I’m assured the Prime 5 needs to be NFL starters on the subsequent stage, whereas the subsequent 5 are very intriguing choices with potential, nevertheless restricted.

Rating Notes


  • Kenneth Walker III MSU – That is the doozy. Most scouts have KW3 as their RB1. As a Again who can’t pass-block or obtain, who was additionally very small, I don’t see a path to achievement. Regardless of his strong bodily measurable on the Mix, he performed a lot smaller than that. Moreover, his elusiveness is tremendously overrated.
  • Keaontay Ingram USC – Other than good dimension and play-speed, there’s nothing to get enthusiastic about with Ingram.


  • Rachaad White ASU – Displayed a pure really feel for the sport, and an excellent imaginative and prescient and elusiveness. He seems to be like a seasoned vet on springs.
  • Dameon Pierce FLA – If it weren’t for his poor Mix, he can be my RB1. He has all of it and is shockingly going unnoticed.
  • Hassan Haskins MICH – A uncommon quickness to pair along with his giant dimension. He was very nimble for his weight and will present a fantastic energy/quickness combo.
  • Pierre Robust Jr. SDSU – Very full Again. Massive, fast, nice imaginative and prescient, and so on. He didn’t blow me away, however he’s too polished and gifted to let slide too far.


  • Isaih Pacheco RUTG – Nice dimension/pace combo. Sadly, he did little to nothing at Rutgers, so his prospects aren’t too shiny. Nonetheless, he’s price a late-round shot.
  • Kevin Harris SC – A uncommon athleticism to pair along with his stocky and highly effective body. He has intriguing traits that can enhance his inventory.
  • Tyler Allgeier BYU – Arguably top-of-the-line bruisers within the NFL already. His height-weight ratio is unreal, and he isn’t gradual both.

Largest Risers

  • Dameon Pierce FLA – The Senior Bowl helped his inventory, and though his Mix was damning, he has risen on boards total for the reason that season’s finish. His nice Senior Bowl put him on the map.
  • Breece Corridor ISU – After top-of-the-line RB Combines in current historical past, Corridor secured his spot because the clear-cut and undisputed RB1.

Largest Fallers

  • Kyren Williams ND – Few had as dreadful a Mix as Williams. He was among the many prime Working Backs on everybody’s board in January, however now you’ll be hard-pressed to search out him in any Prime 5.
  • Isaiah Spiller TA&M – My preliminary RB1, Spiller popped off the display when watching his tape. Sadly, his horrible Mix and horrendous superior stats (box-adjusted effectivity, yards over anticipated, and so on) paint a really totally different image.
  • Zamir White UGA – Regardless of having a great Mix, White has fallen far since his 5-star-recruit days. Accidents have derailed an exceptionally promising younger profession.
Isaiah Spiller was one of many greatest fallers within the postseason course of, with a dreadful Mix and poor superior stats

James Cook dinner is way from an entire Again, however the few traits he has, he’s actually elite at, and among the many greatest on this class

Remaining Projection

If any of those Backs go within the 1st spherical, it’ll doubtless be Corridor. Because the consensus RB1, groups choosing within the again half of the first know they will’t get him within the 2nd, and that might make them pull the set off sooner than his worth would dictate.
After that, it’s anybody’s guess with this place. I imagine even KW3 will drop within the Draft on account of his extreme Third-down limitations. A few of these gamers will even go undrafted, however the class is wealthy with expertise.
