Analyzing the Running Back Class

This year’s RB class if quite deep and has some fairly impressive talent at the top end of it. There is a good mix of short yardage backs, all purpose backs, and speed backs and you can find out more about these prospects after the jump.

Two more underclassmen decide

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.

Analyzing potential matches for the Pittsburgh Steelers

Note: Even though it foucuses on the Pittsburgh Steelers, this is worth the read for Non-Steelers fans as well because it gives some insight into draft stock and some minor details on over 20 prospects (25 to be exact).

This is a draft piece focusing on key players of the Pittsburgh Steelers that will likely be retiring soon (within the next two years). I will first talk about the player who is retiring soon, then mention a possible 2012 replacement and a possible 2013 draft replacement. Or I will mention if the replacement is already possibly on the team.

Note: Make sure you have time to read all of it as it is a little over 2000 words.

Updated Position Rankings – RBs

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.
