Jahvid Best ?

How about we try and sign Usain Bolt? He's pretty fast.

Jahvid Best, California - Scouting Report
Height: 5-10. Weight: 194.
Projected 40 Time: 4.37.
Projected Round (2010): 1-2.
1/3/10: Jahvid Best has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Best is a talented player, but his small frame and durability issues could push him into Round 2. Still, he can't risk another injury-ridden season.

10/10/09: Drawing comparisons to Chris Johnson, Jahvid Best has 514 rushing yards, 11 receptions and nine touchdowns through five games. His YPC is an outstanding 6.2.

2/6/09: Jahvid Best could be targeted late in the first round if he runs a 4.3 at the Combine. Best had 1,580 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on an amazing 8.1 YPC. He also caught 27 balls for 246 yards and another score.

C.J. Spiller, Clemson - Scouting Report
Height: 5-11. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.34.
Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick.
1/3/09: If C.J. Spiller runs a mid-4.3 at the combine, he could be chosen in the first round to be utilized in a Felix Jones-type role. Spiller had 1,042 total yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008. He also scored on a kickoff return.

Noel Devine*, West Virginia
Height: 5-8. Weight: 175.
Projected 40 Time: 4.31.
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.
11/7/09: Someone will draft Noel Devine in Rounds 3-4 if he runs a fast 40. He's averaging 6.2 YPC and 8.2 yards per reception this year. He'll be seen as a Darren Sproles-type player.

2/6/09: There's a chance Noel Devine runs a 4.2 at the Combine. If that happens, he could be selected on Day 1. As a sophomore, Devine rushed for 1,289 yards on a 6.3 YPC. He also caught 35 balls for 185 more yards.

7/25/08: Noel Devine might be exciting to watch because of his blazing speed. His yards-per-carry average (8.6) is also astonishing. Unfortunately, he's nothing more than a third-down back and a kick returner, as his small size limits his NFL potential.

Joe McKnight*, USC
Height: 6-0. Weight: 200.
Projected 40 Time: 4.39.
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.
10/10/09: When Matt Barkley needed to put together a game-winning drive against Ohio State, he went to Joe McKnight early and often. McKnight even had some tough carries in between the tackles. His weakness is picking up blitzes, but that is something that can be taught.

2/6/09: Joe McKnight did a good job putting on some bulk. However, he carried the ball just 89 times in 2008. He was impressive when he did get the rock, rushing for 659 yards (7.4 YPC) and two touchdowns. He also caught 21 balls for 193 yards.

7/25/08: Joe McKnight has a lot of carries where he loses yardage, but he has the speed to break long gains - at the college level. I don't know how that'll work in the NFL. However, he does have blazing speed, so he should make for a good return specialist and third-down back.

Michael Smith, Arkansas
Height: 5-8. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.37.
Projected Round (2010): 5-6.
2/6/09: The blazing-fast Michael Smith rushed for 1,072 yards and eight touchdowns despite his small frame. He also caught 32 balls for 298 yards and two more scores.

Brandon James, Florida
Height: 5-7. Weight: 186.
Projected 40 Time: 4.33.
Projected Round (2010): 6-7.
10/10/09: Listed as a return specialist only. Brandon James, whose 40 will get some attention, returned two punts for touchdowns in 2008. He already has a kick return for a score this season

LaMarcus Coker, Hampton
Height: 5-11. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.36.
Projected Round (2010): FA.
5/21/08: The aptly named LaMarcus Coker was dismissed from Tennessee after failing his fourth drug test. You'd think he'd learn after failing three!

2007: LaMarcus Coker runs a 4.3 and led the Vols in rushing as a freshman with 696 yards. So, why is he all the way down here? Coker was suspended indefinitely in early August for violating Tennessee's substance-abuse policy. Who knows when he'll be back? However, one thing is clear - NFL coaches and general managers won't forget this come April 2009 or 2010.

These are all small/speedster RB/KR options. I only posted players with sub-4.4 fortys. I know that speed isn't the only issue here, but a lot of fans have been excited about C.J. Spiller. This shows that this years draft has a lot of speedy players who could be options at KR/PR. And this is only the RB's.

If the Niners could draft a combo player from the obvious RB/WR/CB spots, it'd be great to have that versatility as an option.

this also shows that the niners are NOT taking a rb in the first round. they come a dime a dozen.

I'm not sure I understand this logic about RBs being a "dime a dozen". Adrian Peterson isn't a dime a dozen. Chris Johnson isn't a dime a dozen. Ladanian Tomlinson isn't a dime a dozen. Those guys were all first rounders, and I'd probably consider them far and away the best RBs in the game the last several years.

Sure, you can find some productive backs later (MJD was a second rounder, and we know Gore was a third rounder due to his knees), but it's not like it's crazy to take a RB like Spiller in the first if he's the BPA and just happens to fill a couple of different needs.

I really hope we target him in the 2nd round, and Cal's Syd'Quan Thompson in the first.

Since when is Thompson a first round pick?

Lol

Yeah I wondered about that. The guys on CSN bay area sports net central called him a 1st rounder a few times when I was watching the show a few weeks ago. Honestly I like Sydquan, well atleast I want to, but is seemed like he got torched last year and wasn't nearly as good as the hype. Cals D kind of underachieved IMO. Thompson isn't close to being a first rounder.

No they don't. Like the guy a few posts above me said, LT was a first. Chris Johnson was a first and everyone killed the titans for picking him when they already had LenDale. Johnathon Stewart was a first rounder, and the panthers went 12-4 after they picked him. DeAngelo Williams was another first rounder. AP was a first rounder. Steven Jackson was a 1st rounder. Those guys save LT(who is kind of washed up now because of age) make up half the top 10 backs in the league. Another guy who is in there obviously is Gore, and he WOULD'VE been a first had his knees not been in question.
Now that Sproles was tendered, San Diego has no need for a change of pace RB. Best just may fall to 49.

[ Edited by LottOfDefense on Mar 4, 2010 at 20:41:24 ]
hope so IMO hes the best pure RB in the draft and he is very elusive and fast and has a nose for the TD reminds me of LT a little
Lets just hope for the Best!
i love j best besides his concussion problem the kid is true 1st rounder maybe we can get him with 2nd rounder cause of injury issues he would solve special teams returner need and he is 4sho a change of pace back for frnak gore and possible successor
on another note we need to pick up a starter or two in free agency stop being cheap open up ur wallet bring the ring back to san francisco
we dont need to trade any picks we are in a prime position with 2 1st rounders in a draft filled with talent the problem i have is this conservative or cheap approach team is taking during free agency when we won our superbowl eddie d stockpilled our teams with quality veterans for our superbowl run now i know some may disagree but darren sharper nine ints 6 house calls is a great addition for a team weak at safety and pass defense michael lewis is one concussion away from retirement we need a safety i hate mark roman 1 pick in four years a s starter why would we not try to pick up a rolle or sharper both probowlers also t.o would be a good addition to wr corps to replace aging bruce and a non productive brandon jones if not t.o what about antonio bryant he was good for us one year great for tb next year he has some character issues but we have strong coach in place to deal with any characters remember at one point vernon davis was a character mike crabtree was supposed to be a diva both our prime playmakers under iron mike we need to stop being cheap and pick up a starter or two in free agency
Wouldn't mind him if he's there in the 2nd.[/code]
I'd rather have Cody in the 2nd than Best...
