Who Will Be the Best NFL RB from 2013 NFL Draft?
 
Been studying the backs and who I feel could be top RBs on the next level.

#1 Eddie Lacy looks to me like he could be a better version of both Ingram and Richardson...i think this guy is a stud

#2 Jawan Jamison obvious comparison because of his school would be Ray Rice

#3 Stephan Taylor

#4 Montee Ball

#5 Ray Graham

No Gio Bernard?

I have to go with Montee Ball. He is the most complete back out of the whole draft.

No Mike Gillislee??

I would like to believe it is either Gillislee or Franklin, but I haven't seen everyone up to this point.

Yep, and I don't think it's close.

Lacy or Ball imo.

Nevermind. It's Gio Bernard. He looks like the next Ray Rice.

Eddie Lacy with Gio Bernard just behind. If Bernard can stay healthy he will be nasty, but that is a big if. Lacy has been hurt a bit too but not as much as Bernard.

CashmoneyDrew 01-16-2013 03:09 PM

Stepfan Taylor for me. I also think pretty highly of Zac Stacy.

1. Eddie Lacy
2. Andre Ellington
3. Joseph Randle
4. Giovani Bernard
5. Zac Stacy
6. Montee Ball

I also really like all three Arkansas Runningbacks. Knile Davis, Dennis Johnson and Ronnie Wingo. I think all of them are being a tad underrated right now.

I like Zac Stacy's low center of gravity...kinda built like a MJD a little

He could end up being a great NFL RB sure....my picks were just my personal feelings of what i feel will translate well on next level. Who knows really....the one guy I am pretty sure of is Lacy. And Ball has been pretty steady..those two are prob safest bets

BRAVEHEART 01-17-2013 12:47 PM

Jonathan Franklin.

norcalgsr 01-17-2013 08:54 PM

Giovani Bernard. /thread.

scottyboy 01-17-2013 08:56 PM

If it's for half a season, then Bernard. But then he'll get hurt. So it's Jawan Jamison. The Raymell comparisons are off. He's not as strong and doesn't have as good vision and is a little quicker. But he's going to be a steal for some team. Real complete guy who can really do it all

ChiFan24 01-17-2013 09:04 PM

Some random mid rounder. I'm a fan of Lacy, but I've also always liked Knile Davis and Ray Graham.

Cigaro 01-17-2013 09:11 PM

If Lattimore takes a full year off and is given a chance at fully recovering, he's my choice, easily.

Otherwise, Lacy.

nepg 01-17-2013 09:20 PM

Those Eddie Lacy types don't end up being very good these days.

I'd like to see Lattimore get healthy.

Without having solid numbers for how fast these guys run, I'll go with Jonathan Franklin with an honorable mention for Mike Gillislee.

Hurricanes25 01-17-2013 10:13 PM

If Gio Bernard is able to stay relatively healthy, I'll go with him.

I'm a huge fan of Mike Gillislee as well.

Bob Sanders Dreadlock 01-17-2013 10:18 PM

Joseph Randle

Lacy and Jamison

Hines 01-18-2013 08:45 AM

I really like Ball, but his 663 carries the past two years scare the crap out of me.

I'd say Lattimore IF healthy. Otherwise, Lacy.

1) Jonathan Franklin
2) Joseph Randle
3) Le'Veon Bell
4) Robbie Rouse
5) Zac Stacy

1. Eddie Lacy - Most physically gifted runner in the class
2. Andre Ellington - Really fast and can break tackles
3. Stefphon Jefferson - Underrated downhill runner; would be great for a zone-blocking team
4. Kenjon Barner - super quick and has great vision
5. Ray Graham - Lost a step this year due to injury, but if he recovers fully, he should be an excellent power back

Hon. Mention: Christine Michael - Looks great when healthy, but his inability to get win starting job raises a red flag

I am not very impressed with this year's class of running backs. It is pretty weak at the top, although there is not a huge drop off as you go down the list of top ten backs.
