Round 7 - DeWayne McBride, Lew Nicholls, Kenny McIntosh

1) TreVeyon Henderson | 5'10 | 215 | RB | Ohio State

9/2 - Indiana - Ran with a good blend of speed, power and footwork. He made the best out of meh O-line play and a stout defense in front of him. 

9/23 - Notre Dame - Looked like his old self today, showed a great blend of speed and power. He had 14 carries for 104 yards, showed a great ability  to bounce plays outside. 

 

2) Blake Corum | 5'8 | 200 | RB | Michigan

3) Raheim Sanders | 6'2 | 225 | RB | Arkansas

4) Will Shipley | 5'10 | 210 | RB | Clemson

9/4 - Duke - Shipley had a great game, showing off his versatility as a runner and receiver. He showed off a nice blend of speed and toughness, worked through the fray to get plus yardage. The offense ran off of him tonight, as they did little downfield. 

5) Braelon Allen | 6'2 | 235 | RB | Wisconsin

9/9 - Washington State - Allen had a very mediocre game. While his O-line didn't give him much help at times, he looked a step slow at times, not able to work free of run coverage. He got just 20 yards on his 7 carries. 

6) Trey Benson | 6'1 | 215 | RB | Florida State

9/2 - LSU - Benson had limited opportunities with just 12 carries, but he ran hard and looked for holes behind marginal run blocking. He did display some good functional speed and grit. 

7) Donovan Edwards | 6'1 | 205 | RB | Michigan

8) Bucky Irving | 5'10 | 195 | RB | Oregon

9/9 - Texas Tech - Irving had a good outing, ran with a very good blend of speed, quickness, and toughness. He wasn't easy to bring down, due to his elusiveness and no quit running style. If not for his teammate Whittington getting carries, his production would've been much higher. 

9) Carson Steele | 6'1 | 225 | RB | UCLA

10) Jo'Quavious Marks | 5'10 | 210 | RB | Mississippi State

9/9 - Arizona - Marks had an impressive outing, albeit against an underwhelming defense. He flashed very good functional speed, footwork through the hole, and vision. He was versatile, also showing his ability to catch the ball. 

11) MarShawn Lloyd | 5'9 | 215 | RB | USC

12) Devin Neal | 5'11 | 210 | RB | Kansas

9/8 - Illinois - Neal flashed great versatility, was dangerous as both a runner and receiver. He displayed a good blend of speed, was relied on heavily to move the ball. 

13) Chez Mellusi | 5'11 | 212 | RB | Wisconsin

9/9 - Washington State - Mellusi had a solid game, showing a good burst past the LOS and into the open field. Where his teammate Allen couldn't get yards in space, he did, showing plus speed.

14) Montrell Johnson | 5'10 | 215 | RB | Florida

15) Kendall Milton | 6'1 | 220 | RB | Georgia

9/16 - South Carolina - Was on a pitch count due to his recent injury, but looked solid. He had 7 carries for just 25 yards, didn't get great blocking on his attempts.

16) Blake Watson | 5'9 | 195 | RB | Memphis

17) Audric Estime | 5'11 | 227 | RB | Notre Dame

9/9 - North Carolina State - Estime surprised me in this one, namely because of his 80-yard TD jaunt. While I never painted him as slow, I didn't expect him to pull away from the Wolfpack defense and take it to the house. Outside of this, he ran hard, not much wiggle, but was a load.  

9/23 - Ohio State - Had 14 carries for 770 yards, showed some solid ability to break through the LOS and run with surprising speed. 

18) Miyan Williams | 5'9 | 225 | RB | Ohio State

9/2 - Indiana - Was limited with just 9 carries and average O-line play. He looked very average overall. 

9/23 - Notre Dame - Had just 1 carry, no seems to be buried on the depth chart.

19) Jarquez Hunter | 5'10 | 210 | RB | Auburn

20) Treshaun Ward | 5'10 | 195 | RB | Kansas State

9/16 - Missouri - Ward had just carries, but in those he showed break away speed once picking through the LOS. He also flashed as a reliable receiver out of the backfield. 

21) Trey Sanders | 6'0 | 215 | RB | TCU

9/16 - Houston - Sanders saw limited carries, appears to have fallen to the #2 spot on the RB depth chart. He looked decent, nothing special. 

22) Frank Gore | 5'8 | 195 | RB | Southern Mississippi

23) Roman Hemby | 6'0 | 200 | RB | Maryland
