I know lots of people think McCluster will go 3rd or 4th round but I think his stock has risen significantly with his performance in the bowl game. If he has a good combine he could go in the 2nd, maybe even the end of the 1st depending on which RBs get selected before him.

Toby Gerhart is a beast too.

Spiller is obviously the most well-rounded back as he can catch and run.

Very nice. I want either Spiller & o-line in the 1st round or two o-lineman drafted.

Thats the one player I wan't the most and we can snag him the 2nd as long as he doesn't run a sub 4.3 forty.
Good stuff, but don't stop there. Throw in height, weight, and projected 40 time.

Also, there's a very good chance we only take an RB is he can double as a return man, so include PR and KR stats too.
Like the look of Mcluster as well.

Also I haven't seen much of Best (any of him tbh) but why are people not talking about picking him up in the 2nd? There is all this talk about Spiller using him as a third down and PR/KR, why not Best he looks very nippy and if we are going to have a situational player I would rather use a 2nd on them. Does anyone know how he is after the injury?
also, how quick is Jacoby Ford?!!!!

The problem with Best is that his injuries are concussions. If they were ankle or knee he might be worth a look in the 3rd or later, but concussion injuries stack up over time making it easier to get the next one.

Good idea. I'll update this thread with that info and the height and weight info for the QBs as well.

yeah, it is pretty annoying (even worse for him). Do you know how many he has had?

If we use him as a situational player (like a lot of people here would Spiller) surely it would lesson the chances of him getting concussion, as he wouldn't be a full time back.

Also I know this is a RB thread, but does anyone know the consensus round for Ford?

At least three that I know of--two of them within a week of each other.

3rd right now, but that could raise signficantly with a good combine. I'll be doing a WR post in the next couple of days.

Awesome. Thanks for the adding the return stats. Are kick/punt return fumbles listed anywhere?

Looking forward to your WR thread.
We don't need a nother running back. I wouldn't pick a KR until the 3rd round or later.

And the point of posting that here is?
