This is exactly what all of the profilers write -- because it's so obvious. The Pats scouts have done their homework on him, but it's the coaches who will have a strong say in his evaluation. "Can he play for the Pats?" -- is the ultimate question asked by BB of his evaluators regarding EVERY prospect.
On topic: I'll opt for one of the RBs who had excellent workouts. And/or one of the RBs who's production may have been affected by an injury. Or a RB whose level of competition wasn't the highest (a sleeper). Or a RB whose offense wasn't suited for his skills.
In any order:
I don't want a RB who was trapped for a loss 32 times and fumbled 6.
