Default Top college running backs?

I know Adrian Peterson, but who are some more good running backs to watch this year that will be entering the 07' draft?

Bush was going to be. From Louisville. OSU's back Pittman is pretty good. NIU's Wolfe impressed. Kenny Irons of Auburn looked very good as well. Oh yea, Steve Slaton from WV. Thats all I can list off hand.

I say Kenny Irons from Auburn is the 2nd best back in the country.

once Darren McFadden gets healthly he will be a good one to watch. although he is a sophmore so he can't be in the '07 draft.

What about Bush? No not that one. Michael Bush, Louisville.


I have to say that running backs may be the second hardest position to scout in college football. Rarely do the skills you see on the college field ever translate to the professional level. Its almost like throwing dice in a dark ally with a drunken stranger. Ok, bad analogy, but its still not something I envy.

I think Charles from UT is going to have a good season and emerge as one of the very best backs in the country. He has tremendous speed and field vision. Keep your eye on him.

IMO, next year charles will be THE best back in the country....Once Young is gone he will get more carries... he and Melton will be a ridiculous combo...Charles has it all though...He can run between the tackles for tough yards, He can catch like a reciever(better than some), He can make people miss, and he is blazing fast....

Michael Bush was one of the best, but he is out for the season which means that he is no longer one of the best.

Yeah but which back will we pick in the sixth round ? Inquiring minds want to know. I think you guys are taking this from the wrong direction. I think you should rechanel your thinking to guys who fit the system and we can pick up on the second day. JMHO. I'll believe the Texans pick a RB in the first round the day Kubes has says adios. Get use to it.

Watching Adrian Peterson and the Sooners take charge in their game with
the Washington Huskies. AD is truly a versitle back with a combo of power & speed that lets him run inside and off tackle effectively.
He looks like he'd be awesome in our ZB scheme here in Houston ! As a matter
of fact, this guy does really remind me of former Bronco great Terril Davis now that I consider his style, except he's bigger. Like Davis, he doesn't screw around with jukes or any of that cute stuff, but hits a hole, makes a
cut and slashes straight down the field.

As much as we would love to have a back like that here in Houston he is too well known and highly regarded for us to hope to get. Well the Draft projections change all the time, but I would assume he is a top 10 pick right now. And I will stick with my hope of us being a .500 team.

I like the FB from Rutgers. Brian Leonard is his name. I think he would look good in a Texans uni next year. Leading for whoever is our tailback and catching passes in the flat.
