It really is gonna be interesting to see how this RB class turns out, especially as many draft geeks seem to believe that's it's a weak class. I personally believe there's plenty of gems to be had here, it's just a matter of picking the best fit. Rodney Anderson, Bryce Love, Damien Harris, David Montgomery, Darrell Henderson, Alex Barnes, Devin Singletary, Benny Snell etc, at least four or five of them should be available to us In the third round I think.

Sure.

Just as long as we don't spend a 1st round pick on any of them like you're suggesting.

The question I'm asking myself is what kind of RB will they be after? Someone who is similar to Kareem i.e a tough runner who can break tackles and also catch the ball out of the backfield? Or do they look for a slightly faster guy who can run tough but also run routes like a receiver i.e like Gordon or Kamara? I personally hope that they go for the latter as it would bring a new dimension to this attack imo. I mean teams are already in hell trying to cover Hill, Watkins and Kelce, could you imagine if we had a Kamara type who ran routes too? Would be bonkers.

Out of the RB's In the current draft who can do that, Rodney Anderson and Alex Barnes might be the best bets. Darrell Henderson at a stretch too.

Gimme an underutilized guy with some wiggle, good first step and a stout frame. At the time I was heavy on the Kamara bandwagon and now I think I like Jordan Scarlett the most out of the current crop.

The character issues are the trouble here. He might just be a shithead and if so that won't fly. If not, Rodney Anderson from OU is talented as hell but the knee injury is worrisome (pretty sure he has another major injury in the last year or two as well).

Higdon out of Michigan might be a 3rd day find. Weber from Ohio State maybe goes before I'd want him. I like Jacobs from 'Bama but he may just stay in to boost his stock presuming he'd start next year. If not, there's some serious talent there. There's a small school kid name Hills out of Slippery Rock; he'll be a SPARQ champion, IMO. It's hard to grade a kids vision with that kind of competition, though. If he doesn't have any, he'll end up one of those Knile Davis, big, fast and shitty types.

It's not a good year to need a RB, IMO. Fortunately the depth of the last 2 classes may keep demand down but I don't see a lot of heavy hitters here and the mid-late round choices are going to be crapshoots and complementary backs.
Rodney Anderson has the skill set to dominate in our offense. He is a fantastic receiver. He broke his leg early in his frosh year vs Tenn, had a serious neck injury in fall camp the following year, and then this year tore his ACL. None of the injuries would affect his performance next year, but the track record isn’t good, but if he is available in the 4th or 5th I think we have to grab him because the upside is so big.

I really like Devin Singletary and Justice Hill. I’m guessing that Darrell Henderson will be a drafted late first early second. I think we can find a talented guy in the 3rd or 4th again. Juwan Washington would be interesting if he declares.

Love Anderson's skill-set but A) Hand-waiving an ACL seems odd and b) the whole track record is just shockingly bad.

Let's be honest, the neck injury alone will take him off a lot of draft boards outright. And injuries don't go down once you start facing larger, faster men in the pros.

A RB is a 3-4 year position at this point so if I thought I could get 3 years out of him before his legs literally detached from his body, I'd be on board with a 3rd day pick. I just don't know that you can bank on that. He has one of the worst injury histories you'll ever see.

I asked this question before but what do yall think about Alex Barnes from K-state? To me he looks just as talented as the likes of Anderson but with no serious injury history.

Not in my opinion. Don't care for him much. Not enough lateral agility. Not good enough vision. Stops his leg drive on contact. Meh. Reminds me alot of Ryan Mathews. When things are opened up for him, he's going to do really well. When they aren't opened up, he's going to struggle and run into his own blockers.

Lamical Perine, junior RB for Florida Gators. About the same size and skill set as K. Hunt with a little more speed. He's in a RB by committee setup but he averages 4.9 yd/rush on 355 attempts and 13.9 yd/catch on 28 receptions for his career. It's only two plays, but he shows some K. Hunt vision and playmaking ability. Currently rated 3-5 round pick by Walter Football.

His cousin looks better and is struggling to get playing time in Washington.
