These will be common posts throughout the next month, keeping all of you faithful followers up to date on who is going and who is staying. Today’s news includes Lamichael James and Ray Ray Armstrong
- LaMichael James will declare for the NFL Draft. He is considered a 2nd to 4th round pick, depending who you ask. His speed and return abilities will make him a dangerous player, no matter where he ends up
- Ray Ray Armstrong will return for his senior season. What began as a possible 1st round pick, his stock was ranging anywhere from the 3rd round to undrafted after being suspended on two different occasions and never getting into a rhythm. Hopefully with another year at Miami, he can build his stock back up to the first round.
I posted the QB rankings yesterday. The Running back class for 2012 has a lot of question marks outside Trent Richardson but features a lot of runners that should contribute in the NFL.
1. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama: Richardson has been very good so far this year and is looking more and more like the next star RB in the NFL. He has all the tools to dominate the NFL and should be a top ten pick.
2. Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M: Gray has not been super impressive but he has done just enough to hold onto this spot. At the next rankings, he could be at No. 3 if he does not step up big the next few weeks.
3. David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech: Wilson has been awesome so far this year. He has risen on tons of draft boards and could be a first round pick come April. I almost rated him as my No. 2 back.
See the rest after the jump.
This is the final installment of a five part series that looked at the top 50 offensive players in the 2012 NFL Draft. Today, I will look at 41 to 50.
41. Case Keenum, QB, Houston: Keenum has been one of the best college QB’s in the past couple years. He has a big arm but will need to transition from Houston’s wacky offense.
42. D.J. Woods, WR, Cincinnati: Woods will move into the No. 1 WR role for Cincinnati and should have a huge season.
43. George Bryan, TE, N.C. State: Bryan could have declared for the 2011 draft but wisely chose to return for his Senior season. Another good year should put him in Day 2 or early Day 3.
