*Ezekiel Elliott
1
Ohio State Jr 6-0 225   1

"Notch below Todd Gurley" - PFDG....Good size...Explosive cutback runner on misdirection and counters...outstanding vision....can run very low to the ground, seldom dances...could improve his receiving skills, but pretty solid in his run style....Write-ups suggest a very good (but not speciall) all around RB with good size...Sub-4.5 forty time can't hurt either.

Pro Day (Brandt) - "Elliott was already entrenched as the best running back available in the 2016 NFL Draft. After his workout at Ohio State on Friday, he's making a case for being the best player in the draft. (Elliott was show-stealer. Caught ball extremely well). He caught passes with ease from quarterback Cardale Jones (including a one hander while talking on the phone and built on his reputation as one the draft's fastest-rising prospects."..."Excellent blocker...Better than Melvin Gordon wss last year." - PFW (Gabriel)

*Derrick Henry
2
Alabama Jr 6-2 242   1-2

"Monstrously huge...thrives on powering through after contact"...- PFDG...Should stay n backfield on 3rd downs due to pass pro skills...CBS describes him as a powerful north-south type runner, but ESPN says he could be more aggressive inside (runs too much like a 190 lb scatback and bounces to the outside too often)...not a quick-as-a-flash cutter.... tough to slow down once he gets going...can bounce outside or plant his foot and explode upfield...ideally suited for zone blocking scheme...takes time to hit full speed when moving horizontally...not an experienced receiver but us improving both as a receiver and blocker....a bit tall and potentially top heavy....ball security is excellent...Compares to LeGarrette Blount... Pro production may not equal is collegiate success....ESPN compares to Brandon Jacobs (although I'd say Jacobs was a lot more physical)...Reminds Gabriel (PFW) of Eddie George and Brandon Jacobs; but "Henry is better than both as a college RB."

Pro Day (Brandt) - got some extra credit for stepping in as a receiver because the event didn't have enough wide receivers. The scouts on hand were ecstatic over how well the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner caught the ball. Henry stepped in and showed that he has real good route-running ability, and that is just another skill that he possesses that people didn't realize that he was so good at. Henry really helped himself out at the pro day.

*Alex Collins
7
Arkansas Jr 5-11 218   2

Explosive athlete with violent running-stye" - PFDG...Solidly built...strong between the tackles runner who doesn't waste much time dancing north or south....Reliable pass catcher (more than just a screen outlet)...team leader...runs with low pad level but there are lapses when he'll run a bit top heaavy....sometimes thinks too much and take too long to decide...ball security a concern...With guys like this, there's a fine line between success or mediocrity - often determined by a half-step worth of speed, split second worth of quickness or a yard or two worth of drag-down....appears to have a starting RB upside, but could just as likely turn out to be just average...."Tough outside runner with quickness to the hole..." - PFW (Gabriel)

Kenneth Dixon
10
Louisiana Tech Sr 5-10 213   2

Compact, fire-plug type...Write ups suggest a lunch pail Steady-Eddie type whose OK at lot of things but not special at any. (Most pro teams ove to have a guy like that in a backup #3 type role)...ESPN rates him a Day 3 prospect and 3rd down competitor...Strength may best be as a receiver out of the backfield...Not explosive enough to be a home run threat....Lacks a great power base. Decent but not elite quickness to the hole. Forty: 4.50..."More of a role-player/change of pace back." - PFW (Gabriel)

Forty: 4.58...BP: 18...VJ: 37.5...BJ: 10-1...3C: 6.97....SS: 4.28...LS:...

*Jordan Howard

Indiana Jr 6-1 225   2-3

Big power back with questionable hands in the receiving game...Size-wise more like a David Johnson than an Andre Ellington or Chtis Johnson. Forty: 4.55...."..."can get the tough yards and move the pile" but"lacks elite speed but heis quick and has good run instincts..." - PFW (Gabriel_

Kenyan Drake
3
Alabama Sr 6-1 210   3

Gritty productive RB...Effort guy...More powerful than elusive...Decent ball skills...good on screens....effective blocker....quick feet.....Durability concern (ankle)...Doesn't dance....Runs with low pad level. Sets up blockers well...."plant-foot, one-cut and go" type runner...quick feet and good lateral agility....not all that elusive/averae acceleration out of cuts...lacks elite burst....natural leg-power...thick lower-half....can push pile...Forty: 4.55. Played in Senior Bowl..."Versatile, one-cut RB." - PFDG....

*C.J. Prosise
5
Notre Dame rJr 6-1 220   3-4

Big back with surprising straight-ahead speed...Some compare to David Johnson...But biggest concern is vision between the tackles...Decent enough feet...Former receiver who's still relatively new to the position...Hard runner who will fight for yards after contact...will catch over the middle...vision between the tackles a concern...patient/will set up blocks...underrated (though not elite) speed...fast enough, elusive enough but lacks top-notch 2nd gear....a bit of a body snatcher as a receiver...At his best when decisive into his cuts (& at his worst when he isn't)...Might be initially fitted as a special teamer while he learns the position...."...unlimited upside...not ready to be a starter but has starter potential..." - PFW (Gabriel)

Jhurell Pressley
4
New Mexico rSr 5-10 206   7-FA

-- Pro Day (Brandt) - an the 40-yard dash in 4.38 and 4.41 seconds. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.06 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.92 seconds. He performed 25 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Pressle looked good enough in the pro day workout that he could earn a sixth- or seventh-round draft spot, or be a priority free-agent pickup following the 2016 Representatives from two NFL teams present -- including the Arizona Cardinals."
