The NFL Combine is approaching as we head toward the NFL Draft in April. Here’s where I stand on the top 10 at each position, continuing today with the running backs.
1. Kenneth Walker III, Michigan State
There is no Najee Harris in this draft and arguably no first-rounder, but Walker’s ability to make people miss and make something out of nothing has him first for me.
2. Breece Hall, Iowa State
Hall is an excellent second-round value as a productive back who has proven durable and rarely takes a loss.
3. Isaiah Spiller, Texas A&M
Spiller runs with speed and sneaky power, and his build is perfect for the NFL. He could rise to the top of this list easily.
4. Kyren Williams, Notre Dame
This is where things get a bit clogged but I like Williams’ ability to make something out of nothing and catch the ball.
5. Zonovan Knight, NC State
I expected a better season from Knight but he has good size. He can also impact in the return game and he’s a patient runner with good vision.
6. Rachaad White, Arizona State
White is a big back with quick feet who can catch the ball. He would be perfect in some systems.
7. Brian Robinson, Alabama
Robinson improved his stock late in the season as a big back who always falls forward and can gain yards after contact.
8. James Cook, Georgia
Many have Cook higher than I do and his combine and pro day could vault him up. He’s a poor man’s Alvin Kamara with obvious bloodlines.
9. Dameon Pierce, Florida
Pierce could be the hardest runner on this list and just hasn’t had as many opportunities as others.
10. Jerrion Ealy, Ole Miss
Ealy is a flash with great burst and quick feet who can also be dangerous as a receiver.
