    Is there any draftable player that fits that mold?

    Rainey and LaMichael James.

    I think both of these 2 are a little underrated right now.

    +1

    Mostly due to size (wonder how often we have to see these undersized RBs break out in the NFL before it stops detracting from them?)[/quote]How many Sub 200 pound Running Backs were in the Top 40 in rushing this season?

    2, Darren Sproles and Chris Johnson thats why they arent valued the same[/quote]

    Forget top 40 ... 3 of the top 5 rushers this year were under 6' and hover around 200 lbs (Rice, Jones-Drew, McCoy).

    You also forgot Gore and Tate (and that's just the top 20).[/quote]] I didnt forget anybody under 200 pounds is under 200 pounds not around 200 pounds. Ray Rice is 212 or 27 pounds heavier then Rainey. Mccoy and Jones drew are 208 or 23 pounds heavier Frank Gore not even close he is 217 pounds or 32 pounds heavier. Ben Tate is 214 or 29 pounds heavier. Lamichael James the same thing all those guys are at least 13 pounds heavier and all over the 200 pound threshold that I stated..

      NFL conditioning programs are worth 10lbs by itself and teams can always add weight to a player.

      So that same RB in college that's 5'9 187, could easily enter his first NFL season as 208 lbs.

      Which puts that guy in exactly the range of the players I've mentioned (and ironically ... that's where (most) of them were in college).

      Rice weighed 192lbs when at Rutgers.
      I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

        The reason smaller backs are less valued is a percentage game. Its teams playing the percentages, thats all.

        There have been small guys who do very well carrying the load for their teams over the years. But the percentages say they are less likely to do so. Fewer "small" guys last too.

        That said, the question asked was who coming out this year are considered "megget/sproles" type backs. Neither Megget or Sproles is/was the primary back on his team. I do think both Rainey and James are VERY good prospects in that mold. Of the 2 I think James has the better chance of being a Primary back, because he is better at avoiding hard colisions. But, I doubt any team that drafts him intends him to be a 20+ carry a game back. It will likely be a team that needs a 2nd back to fill the stable.

          [quote user="buddy33"]What about the Safety from Alabama? Couldn't watch any combine yesterday and didn't have time to read up on the event yesterday. Wasn't there mention that he could slip to a late 1st round pick?[/quote]Barron would be a steal at 32, I'd love that pick. If the Giants don't go that route in round 1, I wouldn't mind them taking Harrison Smith at 64. I'm pretty high on both of these safeties, especially Mark Barron. Pats have two 1st rounders though and I can see them taking Barron (they could use the help).
