his initial grade was a 3rd rounder, even with a torn acl in 2010, so you'd have to figure that after the combine he has completely solidified that grrade if not done wonders to his stock.
5th in the 40 @ 4.50
tied for 1st(with dough martin, another riser) in the bench press @ 28
tied for 6th in the high jump @ 36
3rd in the broad jump @ 122"
15th in the 3 cone drill @ 7.16
tied 14th in the 20 yard shuttle @ 4.31
did not run in the 60 yard shuttle
I'd expect the middle of the pack times on the cone drills and shuttles but the other numbers are top 5 RB.
IMO him and Doug Martin and Chris Polk will be competing to be the 4th RB off the board after Richardson, Miller and Wilson. Probably go somewhere in the middle 2nd to middle 3rd.
The wildcards of LaMichael James, Isiah Pead and Ronnie Hillman could make pushes but I think their size will push them down into the 3rd or 4th round range.
My RB "Big Board"
1. Trent Richardson
2. Lamar Miller
2nd round - 3rd round
3. David Wilson
4. Robert Turbin
5. Chris Polk
6. Dough Martin
3rd round - 5th round
7. Isiah Pead
8. LaMichael James
9. Ronnie Hillman
10. Bernard Pierce
I never heard of Turbin, but I like his build and speed. Also has a very humble attitude, which I'm all about. Its funny, I really like the 3 you listed in the 2nd/3rd... Ronnie Hillman is another to watch.
I'd go Martin, Polk, and Turbin.
Zoner's need to understand HOW BADLY, we need to draft a RB. We have been so lucky that Gore has remained pretty healthy and the emergence of Hunter. Dixon is not a feature back. He has a great team attitude but isn't a 100% dedicated to the preparation needed to succeed in the NFL, he enjoys the lifestyle and females too much.
We will need to spend a 3rd/4th rounder on a RB with size and ability to spell Gore and keep Hunter healthy and fresh.
