Mid-Season look at some Late Round RBs

 

This is more of a continuation of the posts I did before the season started. There are a lot more of these later round guys than there were bedfore the season. FYI: Evan Royster was originally a 3rd RDer, but he is haing a very bad year and has dropped 2 rounds. On the flip side, Mikel Leshoure has exploded from obscurity and is now rated the third best RB in this draft class.


A lot of these guys are Juniors and that means we don't know if they will declare or not. The stats are from ESPN.com


 

 


 Vondrell McGee, RB, Texas 
Height: 5-10. Weight: 205. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.44. 
Projected Round (2011): 7-FA. 

3/29/10: Rushed for 300 yards on 56 carries (5.4 YPC) as a junior. Also caught eight passes. 

8/6/09: Didn't see much action as a sophomore (376 rushing yards, nine receptions), but he'll get more playing time now with several 2008 running backs gone.

There are no college highlights available. But, he is a Senior, so he will be in this draft class.


Da'Rel Scott, RB, Maryland 
Height: 5-11. Weight: 200. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.39. 
Projected Round (2011): 7-FA. 

3/29/10: Missed time with a wrist injury. Playing in only seven games, Da'Rel Scott rushed for 425 yards on a 5.0 YPC. He also had 12 catches for 101 more yards. 

8/6/09: Another Maryland player with blazing speed, Da'Rel Scott rushed for 1,133 yards and eight touchdowns in 2008. He also chipped in with 21 receptions. Scott handled kickoff return duties as a freshman, but didn't score any touchdowns. Dropping his stock a bit, Scott was suspended for a game last year.

No fumbles, this guy has really good ball control apparently.



Darren Evans**, RB, Virginia Tech 
Height: 6-0. Weight: 210. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.52. 
Projected Round (2011): 5-7. 

3/29/10: Tore his ACL in September. 

8/6/09: Took over as Virginia Tech's starting running back as a true freshman a few games into the 2008 campaign. Darren Evans finished with 1,265 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 17 passes.

No Fumbles either. Ryan Williams has taken over this offense, but Evans was great as a freshman.  I think Evans could be a steal. 




Third Down Backs

Jeff Demps, RB, Florida 
Height: 5-8. Weight: 183. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.25. 
Projected Round (2012): 2-3. 

7/26/10: Will be drafted as an offensive playmaker; Jeff Demps and his 4.25 40-yard time rushed for 745 yards and seven touchdowns in 2009 on just 99 carries.

I think he will stay another year at UF, so his numbers can increase with a overall better offense.


Ralph Bolden, RB, Purdue 
Height: 5-9. Weight: 194. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.49. 
Projected Round (2012): 7-FA. 

7/26/10: Ralph Bolden had a great season (935 rushing yards, 4.7 average, 20 catches), but suffered a major knee injury in spring practices. Bolden had ACL surgery on the same knee a few years ago.

Can anyone find 2010 stats? Junior, might stay in college, but looks like what you'd want in a 3rd down back, at least when it comes to the combine type stuff


Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati 
Height: 5-10. Weight: 193. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.40. 
Projected Round (2012): 4-5. 

7/26/10: Isaiah Pead impressively rushed for 806 yards and nine touchdowns on a 6.7 YPC. He also caught 20 passes for 201 receiving yards.

No FUMs. Having a great year. Might come out this year, but he might not. Depends if he thinks he is worth more than a 4th/5th.




 Victor Anderson, RB, Louisville 
Height: 5-9. Weight: 185. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.48. 
Projected Round (2012): 6-7.

Injury hampered 2009 stats, that is good and bad.

 

 

Brandon Saine, RB, Ohio State 
Height: 6-1. Weight: 217. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.40. 
Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

Good size, but seems to be a better pass catcher than pure RB.
