Default Kenjon Barner, RB - Oregon



5'11" 195 lbs.

On the small side, but has serious speed to make up for it. Has great balance, acceleration, vision and body control, and he's very decisive and hits his lanes hard. He's good in the receiving game. Falls forward when he's tackled and finishes runs aggressively. When you realize that he's a speed back, his physicality says a lot to me. In some ways, I want to call him a poor-man's Chris Johnson, but he runs harder. In the prospect comparison thread I called him a miniature version of Walter Payton based on some elements of his running style. Those, of course, are stylistic comparisons and not predictions of his level of NFL success, but I like him better than I liked LaMichael James last year and wouldn't have any problem with a team taking him in the second round. Depending on how the offseason goes - say his 40 time at the combine puts him closer to Chris Johnson territory than people anticipate - I think he's definitely in contention to be the first running back taken in this draft.
