Consensus 49ers Big Board - running backs v1.0

Finishing up the positional review with the running backs. A lot of people advocate drafting a back that fall due to injury concerns like Lattimore and Davis, and could either be the heir apparent to Gore or a replacement for Dixon as power back/ST player.

I used several draftnik sites to get an average draft position for the players - thus the "consensus". I then grouped the prospects into seven tiers, colored them following the rainbow (magenta, blue=good, red=bad). Then moved those guys up and down arbitrarily based on their stats, what little I know of the prospects, how they fit in the 49ers' schemes as I perceive it.

My other tables and bit more on the method can be read here:

I am not putting anyone in the best two tiers, as Baalke is not drafting a RB in the first three rounds. This is a weak RB draft with no 1st-roundre but still several teams looking for one early that could at least challenge the starter.
