Let’s talk RB in 2018 draft rankings
Measurements starting to come in

Barkley 6’ 233
Guice 5’10” 224
Freeman 5’11 229
Penny 5’11” 220
Michel 5’10” 214
Chubb 5’11” 227
Ronald Jones 5’11” 205
Kerryon 5’11” 213
Hines 5’8” 198
Wadley 5’10” 194
Mark Walton 5’9” 202
Scarborough 6’1” 228

Got some big ole backs in this class. Barkley is supposed to go 4.4 at that weight, jump close to 40”, & have an insane broad.

Who will be the 5 best backs in this class?

re: Let’s talk RB in 2018 draft rankings
Barkley
Michel
Freeman
Guice
Kerryon

I'm not all that familiar with some of those guys. I know em, but didn't really watch them play.

What teams these guys go to will factor in pretty large.

I did not realize Barkley had 10 pounds on Guice. I thought they were nearly the same size. He carries 233lbs really well.

Ronald Jones is Jamaal Charles 2.0 so i'll say hes behind only Barkley. Dude was 100M champion in Texas, his nickname is "Texas Tesla", he broke USC records with little carries, he's legit.

How’s his frame? If he can hold up to 10-15 hits a game then he can be Andy Reid’s new back in 2 years

I think Guice is going to end up having a career extremely similar to Kevin Faulk. He would be a great third down / change of pace back on a contender.

I figured Kerryon was about 15lbs heavy than that

A lot of draft projections don't have many RBs going in the first round. I love to see Washington pick up Michel or Chubbs in the second or third round if possible.

Scarbough is smaller than I thought. I thought he was closer to 250.

I'm not familiar with every back on the list. But I believe Sony Michel will have the most success on this list.

Did Bo lose weight?

Surely he was bigger than that while at Alabama.

Was going to post something similar about Ronald Jones. He'd be in my Top-5, for sure.

For some reason I thought he would be taller than 6'1"

Bama PED's man- See Trent Richardson. Gotta get off the sauce to combine it and you lose mass.

Dude stayed hurt and was dominate for 1 game a year. Screams Bama PED's.

Two inches shorter. Probably why they seem the same size

Barkley being heavier than Scarborough and way more explosive is eye opening.

Not sure why I expected Chubb to be around 6'2".
