Mike James is a kid I like late out of Miami. Not great in anything, but solid in all aspects of being a RB, including doing a very good job in pass protection.

Brandon McGee is a kid with nice size and speed that has not played up to his potential. Sam Shields was that type of guy as well coming out of Miami.

A kid I would love to take a flier on is Knile Davis of Arkansas. He was a 1,200 yard back 2 years ago, but then got hurt. He came back I think mid way thru last year but did not look like the same back.

He blew it up at the combine, and if he get's back to the form of that 1,000 yard rusher, you have a big, strong and fast RB.

Zac Stacy is a solid little back.

Mike Ford has nice speed, but for a man of his size, he likes to take everything wide.

I think Knile is going to fly up into the top 75 picks. I hope we can get McGee in the 3rd.

I know he blew up at the combine swerve, but he was a shadow of that 1,000 yard back from a few years ago. He does have great size and speed though, so we will see.

totally unproven guys rise high every year. Stephen Hill did nothing in college and got drafted early purely on ability. At least Davis has some proven history. I actually think he's the most talented of the backs. But he got derailed by injuries.

Quote:
Arkansas RB Knile Davis ran "unofficial" forty times of 4.30 and 4.31 at the NFL Scouting Combine before being deemed with an "official" 4.37.
Much like the rest of Arkansas' offensive skill-position players, Davis was highly productive in 2011 before falling off the map last year, primarily due to injuries and landing in the coaching staff's doghouse. Davis is a rocked-up 227 pounds, though, and moving as fast as he did in the forty is uncommon. He's now a candidate to rise up draft boards, even if he doesn't play that fast. Feb 24 - 2:18 PM

His lack of production last year & many fumbles will play a bigger role than his 40 time.
