    Some sleeper RB's would be

    Kapri Bibbs Col St.
    David Fluellen Toledo
    Marion Grice Arz St.

      Ya, i have a ton of RB's i like for the later rds. Actually the 3 i named above were just in refrence to the OP, showing him that Hyde and A.Williams aren't in fact sleepers this yr..

      James White has always been a guy i liked. I bet if he was 6ft 220lb, he'd be in line for top back this yr. Hes just a bit small, but i bet who ever drafts him, finds out its not much of a biggie. Hes ran in the Big10, a very physically demanding confrence for RB's, and hes exceled while doing so, in many smash mouth games throughout his career. He could be a really nice back in a duo system..

        He is surprisingly good in pass protection for a guy who could be considered a smaller RB. I heard them saying he was by far the best pass blocking RB at the Senior Bowl which surprised me because I figured it would have been bigger guys like Fluellen or Sims who would have excelled at that... another guy from Wisconsin I really like is Chris Borland the MLB. The dude is a ****ing animal! Too bad we have Beason "KNOCK ON WOOD!" lol.. I wonder if he could play OLB because he really surprised me with his coverage skills and is really good and hitting a hole to make a tackle. He will be a solid 2-3 round pick for a team IMO

            Ya, banging with those guys in the BIG10 , you learn to pass block, i suppose.lol He really has nothing negative, outside of being alittle light, which shoulden't matter, as he can block, catch, run, and score.. I guess the one thing would be, hes never really had to handle the load all to himself with Monte Ball and Melvin Gordon being there, but hes got some games hes toted the load, like his 26carry 125yrd 1td game @minnesota(for example).. Not to mention, he is listed at 197(don't know what he weighed in at sr bowl?), so its not exactly like hes Dri Archer or something..lol Ya, James White would be a fine mid rd pick for a team looking for a back..

              I forgot about that... we don't need another back who is prone to coughing it up lol. But he is a good returner and all around RB. Definitely an intriguing guy in the mid-late rounds.

                Yeah White would be a good complementary RB I think. LOL at the Dri Archer statement! He could be Trindon Holliday 2.0 though haha

                  Ya, i didn't mean Dri Archer is a bad player, but his weight obviously will hinder him come draft time, as people will see him more as a luxury type back more then a dependable many carry a game back that can take a pounding and be used inside the 5 if need be.. Dri's in the Dex McCluster, Trindon Holliday(as u stated), La'Rod Stephens-Howling type back.. In the open field Archer is a beast, and he can use him in many diffrent ways, but hes not gonna give u 15-20 carries often if ever. I actually love Archer if ur talking 6th-7th rd..

                    Dri Archer reminds me a lot of Tavon Austin. They're about exactly the same size and weight. He could also be used as a Darren Sproles type if he put a few more on. I think he's going to make some team happy if they're creative enough to know how to utilize him. The guy is an absolute blur.
