Hello guys welcome to the third edition of the NN draft thread. In this thread
you rec this post I mean I talk about the draft we talk about the draft. If you are wondering why I am doing these official draft threads its because Fooch has given me the opportunity to write these fanposts. Fooch also said to rec this post and we don't like to disappoint Fooch now do we?
Here in the draft thread we have a few rules. The first and most important rule is to remain civil. So please no name calling, personal attacks, sexist/racist remarks, or anything that would break the site's rules. Other than that I don't have many/any rules. If you have anything to do with the NFL draft you are free to post it in this thread.
If you are on the mobile website follow me after the jump to see my rankings of the RBs. Also I'm sorry it took so long to write this post I will try to be more productive in the future.
What to say about Richardson? I can't say that I've been watching nfl prospects for 10+ years but in the limited time I have been watching Richardson has been the best RB prospect I have seen. The guy is the whole package. Can run with power with speed anc can catch the ball out of the backfield.
When watching Miller run its easy to see that he has decent speed but there is more to him than just his speed. He has decent power and can run through tackles if need be but he also has the agility to elude tackles. Of course all of this is for naught if he can't find the hole. Luckily for him he has great vision and can find a hole even when his initial hole isn't there.
I am a huge fan of Polk. He is fast enough to not be caught from behind and strong enough to break through tackles. Has good hands which I heard is valuable for a team that throws it to their RB a lot. I seem him as a RB who can be a Frank Gore to a team.
Look for Wilson to kill it at the combine. Wilson seems to be the faster version of Kendall Hunter. Someone who doesn't have a lot of power and can't be a full time back. I wouldn't expect the Niners to draft Wilson just based on the fact that we already have him in Hunter.
One of my favorite prospects in the draft. He may not be the biggest or fastest but he runs really well. He was the main back on the Boise State team. He is the type of guy who isn't the best at one thing but does everything well. He can become a featured back but I don't expect him to be one of the top RBs in the league.
Pierce is a strong strong runner. He seems to be a better version of Anthony Dixon. He does not dance and finishes strong every play. He isn't very fast so he will be limited when it will comes to different types of running plays but will surely help when it comes to 3rd/4th and 1.
Speed on speed on speed. James has a lot of speed. He isn't that big so I don't know how he will handle the beatings he will take in the NFL. He won't be a full time player but if used in a RBBC he could be deadly.
