      You forgot Jamaal Charles.

      Other than that, it's mostly accurate. And by that, I mean I agree with most of them.

        Is Jones really the fourth best back in this years RB class? It seems to be some kind of general consensus all around the net but why does people like a backup all that much?

                Felix Jones isn't an ordinary backup. He was getting roughly 8.5 YPC during his senior season.

                His 40 time knocked him down to 5th on my list, but he's still a 2nd round prospect.

                  Jones just has too many question marks. Firstly, can he handle a full-time load. Secondly, was his YPC a factor of defenses "relaxing" when D-Mac was off the field? Lastly, what about his speed? If you talked to most draftniks before the combine they'd have Jones rated the same if not faster than McFadden, but he "only" managed a high 4.4.

                  Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all saying this is slow, but more that his high draft grading for me at least seemed to depend on his YPC and his speed, which was supposed to be fantastic.

                  Maybe he's faster in pads? Maybe not. I think he's too much of a gamble high up and would happily take Charles, Rice and maybe even Forte and Johnson ahead of him.

                    Nothing special. Not saying it is bad, but what is there exactly to talk about?

                    Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

                      most third down backs have a high rush average and catch average because defenses relax on third and longs.

                        Any time a back splits carries or spells another RB he has a high rush average because he's always fresh. See Jerious Norwood. Doesn't make them a great back.

                          Someone explain to me why Matt Forte is so good? I don't see it. He looks good on the field.... that's it just good, and he suffered an injury. He put the ball on the ground at the Senior Bowl... I dunno, I don't know enough about him to say he's not doing anything in the NFL, but that's my feeling. Seems like a possible one year wonder, Chris Brown-like.

                            I would too. He has really slipped. Also, I actually have Chris Johnson higher on my RB rankings then Felix Jones right now.

                              Higher, yeah. But 8.5YPC is just ridiculous. I wouldn't care if the only times he ran the ball were during trick plays.
