RB Rankings

Overall this is a very good Running back class. If you look past my top five guys you still can find players like D’Onta Foreman, James Conner, Donnel Pumphrey, etc. You don’t need to take one in the first round to get your starter for the next 5 years.

1) Christian McCaffrey:  A great runner with good vision, blazing speed, and pass catching abilities.

Pros: Pro ready, asset in both versions of your offense

Cons: Work horse in college

Round Projection: Top 15

2) Leonard Fournette: Amazing size plus explosive speed. Decent blocker, not reliable in the pass game.

Pros: Can hit the whole fast, runs over defenders

Cons: Injury history, maturity questions

Round Projection: Top 10

3) Joe Mixon: Amazing talent with huge off the field concerns.

Pros: Pass catcher, Patient runner, Solid speed

Cons: Off the field concerns

Round Projection: Round 3

4) Dalvin Cook: Homerun hitter with off the field issues

Pros: Good size, Explosive in space, Solid in pass game

Cons: Nagging shoulder injuries, Multiple off field incidents

Round Projection: Early Round 2

5) Alvin Kamara: Solid back who has lighting in his legs

Pros: Can blast through any hole, Patient runner

Cons: Average size, Average pass blocker

Round projection: 2nd to 3rd Round
