James Davis, Clemson
Noel Devine, West Virginia
Ian Johnson, Boise St.
Marlon Lucky, Nebraska
LeSean McCoy, Pittsburgh
Knowshon Moreno, Georgia
DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma
Javon Ringer, Michigan St.
its 1 of these guys
Harvey Unga, BYU
Chris "Beanie" Wells, Ohio St.
All three of them were in the poll from the beginning.
Never heard of any of them.
That picture of "DeMarco Murray" isn't him. He is #7 on the Sooners.
From what I've seen as a Gator fan, it's gotta be Moreno. That kid can flat out run.
This is my take on the RB class.
Davis (Clemson) - Best pure runner in the class, but he can't catch a lick.
Wells (OSU) - soft runner that doesn't finish. I have doubts about him.
Moreno (UGA)- Very nice runner with a bit of cut back ability. very poor blocker.
Ringer (Mich St.)- Ran well to the outside last year, how does he do in the middle without Caucick this year.
MCCoy (Pitt) - Barring injuries destined to be the best pro of this group.
Johnson (Boise St.) - how fast is he really vs. how slow he looks while playing.
Lucky, Devine, Unga, Murray - A notch or two below the ones listed above.
Two you left off the list are Harvin of Florida. Best playmaker in this group, hands down. Can he run inside and can he learn to block. And Spiller of Clemson. Super speed, super speed and more speed. First step is lethal and the second step is usually as he blows by you.
I would take Spiller or Harvin over any of the others listed above, if I had a true #1 back, like Maroney, on my roster.
Adrian Foster, PJ Hill, and Mike Davis probably belong in the conversation, in that order.
Slightly off topic.....a name I've not heard of before, Tyrell Fenroy of Louisiana Lafyette had just under 300 yards and 3TD's at the weekend, can anyone shed any light on him?
All college boys. What about the NFL players?
Shonn Greene (Iowa) is top 3 behind Moreno and Wells.
will the real DeMarco Murray please stand up (you pictured Jameel Owens a Freshman WR from muskogee OK)
Did I miss Donald Brown (Connecticut) in this conversation somewhere?
Since I'm a Cal homer I'll have to say keep an eye on Jahvid Best! lol
