NFL Draft Spectacular: The Runningbacks/Fullbacks

1) Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma

As close to a can't miss guy as there is at RB. He's going to be an absolute monster even though Chris Brown was as impressive as Peterson at times in the Big 12 and Peterson runs high like Brown does. Let's look past that, ok?

2) Antonio Pittman, OSU

Can run inside and outside and doesn't dazzle anybody. But is rock-solid. What's the difference between him and Lawrence Maroney? Another Big-10 back who played on a big stage. Always seemed to break a big run when it counted.

3) Brian Leonard, Rutgers

Mike Alstott. Enough said.

4) Marshawn Lynch, Cal

I hate Lynch for the record. He's my pick for "Most likely to celebrate draft day in a strip club VIP room like Pac-Man Jones." Maybe its the dreadlocks, or the fact that he does look JUST LIKE PACMAN JONES.

5) Michael Bush, Louisville

I know, I know...injury prone. But isn't a broken leg a lot different from a "hamstring" guy?

6) Lorenzo Booker

Ok this may have something to do with the fact that he could wind up a Patriot. Why not start the "spin" machine early?


Marshawn Lynch, Chris Henry, Arizona (came out early and "raw" isn't something that works in the NFL typically).


Kolby Smith, Louisville.

Made the loss of Michael Bush tolerable. Which is not an easy thing to do.

You made a big mistake. Tony Hunt will prove to be a Year 1 - Top 3 Rookie RB in the NFL. Eagles...Good Move!
