I'll use this thread to talk about and breakdown the upcoming 2021 RB class.

Kinda rare to see the SR class out shine the underclassmen. Esp at this position, but that's the kinda class it looks like rn. It's May 2020 but I don't see a particularly deep class as it stands now. Obviously we have a year to go but I see a pretty clear drop off after 2nd/early 3rd tier. The top 10-15 look like they could definitely contribute right away but in terms of true feature backs we'll need to see some step up.

How I've graded the position. Always fun to look back at hits & misses

Third String But Playing on Special Teams
I like the look of Najee Harris but what are the chances we take another running back in 2021 ? I think I read somewhere that 2 or 3 of our existing running backs are on their last contract year

Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
Journey Brown is going to breakout. He has the fastest 100m time in Pa history 10.4. He’s up to 215 and benches 395 and ran a 4.29 before campus shut down.

Harris made a few moves in that South Carolina game I'll never forget. This clip especially.

Staying in shape. Looks trim?

I think we'll see next year play out exactly like this year. No one or maybe one prospect in round one, get your guy in rounds 2-3 for pennies.

Balt, Indy, Det did it right. Love the value, fit & what they do for those teams. I mean all 3 teams could have monster run games.

Agreed. They keep pumping them out. I was big on Sanders before he got a chance and feel the same about Brown. He'll be a good one. Nice ability to shed arm tackles, weak tackles at < 210. Heard he has a nice vert (40") and jump too.

Think he might have better patience than Sanders.
