      Quite a few mocks had Felix in them. Some in round 1. It's best for his stock though.

        Bad move for him. How much higher can a speed back go than 15-25?

          I think it was a bad move. I dont think he as talanted as DMAC, and he benefitted alot from being in the same backfield, and I think everyone can agree. He is still a talent, but I think he should have come out this year.

            Well I think that rules out a rb in the 1st for dallas, Id like to think Mendenhall would go before early twenties

                I don't know if it is a bad move. He'll get a lot of chances to carry the load in Arkansas

                  I believe that he wants to show that he can be a one man show and he's hoping that will propel his draft stock higher for next season

                    I think it's a good move for him. There's a chance he can move closer to the mid-first next year. Granted, there's risk involved, as he has to play out next year first, and who knows what happens. But he was more of a late first/early 2nd this year.

                    It'll be interesting to see which junior RB's declare. I think Slaton is probably headed back barring a surprise. I think Rice is the one that should declare. I could see James Davis consider bolting as a result of Jones staying. There's often a surprise bolt. James Davis may qualify as a surprise, but with Charles/Kevin Smith looking like they are all staying, I could see a junior decide to see if they can sneak into the 2nd/3rd stanza.

                    Anyhow, I guess the RB rankings are getting clearer. My order (with James Davis as a junior in)

                    First Tier

                    1. Darren McFadden - No question. Only thing left is whether or not he can run, say, a low 4.4 or better. Top 5 pick.

                    2. Rashard Mendenhall - His 40 time will be huge. A mid-4.4 time or better, and he may lock up the 2nd spot. Mid-late first.

                    3. Jonathan Stewart - A lot of folks are wondering on that 40 time. A bad time (say mid-4.5's or worse) and he could fall a bit. Remember how Steven Jackson fell? It could happen here, even though for his size, a 4.55 type time is fine. Late first/early 2nd.

                    2nd tier

                    4. Chris Johnson - I expect him to keep sliding his way up. A huge 40 time (say low 4.3, if not an insane high 4.2) and there is an outside chance he goes late first. 2nd rounder.

                    5. Ray Rice - A lot of folks seem to love this guy. I wonder what his 40 time will be. Seems all over the board. But enough folks like him that I can't see him dropping out of the 2nd. Outside shot at late first. early-mid 2nd.

                    6. James Davis - If he bolts, I think he'll get a lot of looks. Solid back. A good 40 time and he's got an outside shot at late first. mid-2nd-early 3rd.

                    3rd tier

                    7. Mike Hart - Some like him as a tough back. Others don't for obvious reasons. I don't see him dropping out of the 3rd, though. Some team will gamble on "toughness" and "leadership". late 2nd - mid 3rd

                    8. Matt Forte - Good size and what seems like enough speed. Think Brian Leonard. For all the focus on Jacob Hester that's been given this year, Forte's a similar, and better, prospect. mid 3rd - mid 4th.

                    9. Tashard Choice - I like the guy. Solid player. Just too many concerns, ranging from health to 40 time. If healthy, could be a solid player, perhaps more of a complement than a lead. mid 3rd - mid 5th.

                    10. Louis Rankin - A bit under the radar, it seems, but he seems to look the part. I like what I saw this year, and he has good enough size. 40 time will be huge. late 3rd - early 5th (range isn't as low as Choice's due to Choice's health questions)

                    One of my personal favorites, Calvin Dawson, just hurt himself bad by stealing. I won't be surprised if he ends up in Canada.

                      I thought Stewart has been timed at a 4.3, i don't see him running any higher than a 4.46

                        Stewart's times have been all over the board. Some have him high 4.3's, I've seen others say high 4.5's.

                          I agree with toonster. If Johnson runs well, he is going to make some major moves on boards.

                            I think it's a very good move for him. It will show if he is able to carry a full load or not.

                              Whose we all? He would have probably been a late 1st early 2nd rounder if he would have come out.
