Chase Beeler, C, Stanford i dont think i'll change it untill after the combine, unless something drastic happens. Tell me what you think
LeGarrette Blount and Chris Ivory were the top rookie running backs in 2010. Both were undrafted.In 2009 there was Arian Foster undrafted, Mike Goodson in the 4th, and Javon Ringer in the 6th.In 2008 there was Tanard Choice in the 4th, Ryan Torian in the 5th, Peyton Hillis in the 7th, and Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis was undrafted.In 2007 there was Micheal Bush in the 4th, Le'Ron McClain in the 5th, and Ahmad Bradshaw in the 7thIn 2006 there was Leon Washington in the 4th, and Jerome Harrison in the 5thIn 2005 there was Marion Barber in the 4th, Brondon Jacobs in the 4th, Darren Sproles in the 4th, and Ryan Grant went undrafted.I could go on and on and on, but the point is there are ALWAYS good running backs in the 4th round or later. Always. It's easier to find late round gems at RB than any other position by far. Combine that with the fact that RBs have the shortest NFL lifespan (3.5 years on average) and it just becomes a waste to spend anything higher than a 4th on a RB. Just throwing picks away.
You know what amazes me. I look around the web and spend way too much time looking at prospects and scouting reports and such, and every site I go to doesn't have Doug Martin anywhere on the radar. Now he's a junior that won't declare (because he wouldn't even be drafted) but most sites don't even have him listed. Not even projected as an undrafted free agent. just completely missing from anyones listings. I just can't understand it. The dude is a flat out playmaker and his stats are ridiculous. (over 2ooo yards, 6.1 YPC, and 27 TDs the last two seasons) and he plays for a popular team (Boise State) It's a conspiracy. I just don't get it.
