just made a trade for an extra #1 pick in my zealot league and was wondering other than peterson and m. bush who else RB wise will be the smash hits next year.

tried the search but kept coming up empty. thanks

Good question. We have a developmental draft in one league, where we can draft college players, and I'm wondering who the hot college players will be to come out in the 2007 draft.

It's so early, that nobody could give you a definitive answer. My vague early "rankings":

Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma 6-2 218-lbs Sophmore.

Michael Bush Louisville 6-3 240-lbs Junior.

Marshawn Lynch California 5-11 200-lbs Sophmore.

Alley Broussard LSU 6-0 237-lbs Junior.

Lorenzo Booker Florida State 5-11 187-lbs Junior.

Selvin Young Texas 6-0 215-lbs Junior.

Career backup. Looked good in a couple games last year when Maroney was on the shelf. Russell in now suspended from the team due to academic problems with less then a 50/50 chance to play in 2006.

Russell stepped into the 2 back system that Minnesota runs and looked great. Didn't play as a freshman -- was behind MBIII and LoMo "the backup." Gopher fans took to calling him "Little Earl" because he is a unique combination of size and strength.Soph Stats --
Rush Yds Y/G Avg Lng TD

186 1130 94.2 6.1 61 18
He is no longer on the team. Academic issues. Unlikely he'll make it back by next year but he's worth keeping an eye on either way.

And many expext Notre Dame QB, Brady Quinn could go real high in NFL and fantasy drafts next year.

Really depends on if he can stay healthy this year. He's a guy that would probably fall to the 2 - 4 round of the draft but would be a Rudi Johnson type.

Looks like a down year for RBs to me, with the exception of Peterson. I believe both 2005 and 2006 are better.

Although there may be a prospect or 2 that come out of nowhere, I think that you want to grab a RB this year if you need one.

I think next years RB class = 2005 class. Peterson alone makes up for it but a couple of other nice prospects. Slightly less than this year

QB is better than both 2006 and 2005. I think Quinn is the best of the bunch and a couple of other nice names next year also.

WR crushes anything and better than 2004 in the end. Some great looking prospects

TE is also good with a couple of big names. Not as deep as this year but a couple of really nice ones

I do like the 2007 draft for the O side of the ball.

Mike Hart is not an NFL caliber RB.Too small, too slow and no moves.

As a Cal fan, I can't wait to watch Lynch run next year. He is a much better back than Arrington was (not saying a lot right now, but Arrington is still young). Lynch has good speed and breaks a ton of tackles. His sophomore season was productive but he had some minor injury problems ( I think he broke his pinky finger).

He will split time with Forsett, who is also a junior, so hopefully he will stay healthy all year. He should run for 1900+ yards in the soft Pac 10 + Cal's weak nonconference schedule. I think he has 1st round talent.

He makes positive yardage and fights for extra yards. I think he could be an NFL RB, but durability concerns are the overriding factor.

Calvin Johnson is an absolute beast. I love this kid. Could easily be the #2 or #3 pick next year.

I've also heard very good things about Darby (Ala)- though I've yet to see him play very much.

I also like Marshawn- has impressed me very much (I like him a lot more than Arrington). Lynch seems to have more moves/lower body strength than Arrington did.

In all honesty I can't believe some of what I've seen in this thread.

Despite what I may think of him, Marshawn Lynch is considered right now by most that follow the NFL draft and college football heavily to be an elite RB prospect. Many have him ahead of even Peterson and he is clearly considered to be in the top tier with Peterson, and putting him any lower than #2 (which he is in every one of these rankings) quite frankly is a bit ludacris right now.

Now personally, I think Lynch is a bit overrated and will end up being somewhat like Maroney (preseason elite tier, lots of hype early, but drops throughout the season), but this is an NFL FF forum so I certainly have to respect the opinion of the guys who spend their whole year looking at college prospects strictly in terms of their NFL draft value.

Again, the near unmention of Lynch at this point is astounding.

He looked great from what I have seen of him so far. Not quite as good as Ronnie, Carnell or Rudi but very good.
Calvin Johnson is an absolute beast.
No doubt about it. This guy is amazing. Other that Fitz in the last few years noone is close to this guy.

Next year will be the year of the WR.

Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech

Dwayne Jarrett, USC

Ted Ginn, Ohio State

Calvin Johnson is like a Keyshawn clone.

Jarrett is a size/speed nightmare who can make acrobatic catches and shake defenders after the catch. He's a likely top three pick and the best WR prospect since Larry Fitzgerald.

Ginn is a speedster who's made a big impact for the Buckeyes.

All three are juniors, but I expect all three to enter the draft next year.

Agree. I think if you want to spend a high pick on a RB, do it this year. If you want to spend a high pick on a WR, wait for next year.

This is the only guy on the list I know anything about, and I don't see it. He'll be second on the team in carries to Jamaal Charles and also splitting time with utility back Ramonce Taylor.

I'm as big a fan of next year's RB class as I am of this year's.

Adrian Peterson is to Eric Dickerson what Reggie Bush is to Marshall Faulk. Peterson is a great back. He needs to stay healthy, but he is a freak.

Marshawn Lynch probably won't grade as high as DeAngelo, but he is a very very good pro prospect. Interesting running style. Very very hard to tackle. Good speed. Makes more from nothing than anybody I watched all year. Bizarre patience. Really, take the time to watch Cal next year. This guy is different and very good. I read he is phenomenally strong for his size, and I believe it because he just runs through guys like they're little kids.

Michael Bush is next year's LenDale, but bigger and faster with amazingly soft hands.

DeShawn Wynn comes back strong from the knee injury and he'll grade as high or higher than Maroney. He looked like an NFL feature back to me this year. He is very good.

Those should be the top four, then it will look a lot like this year with a muddled dozen of varying skills and hype. Lynell Hamilton (SDSU) is one of my favorites. He reminds me of Edge, a poor man's version, but he's a complete package of size, hands and speed. It will depend on who declares and who stays in school, but this will be a quality class regardless. Lorenzo Booker was insane in HS, and he's been under-utilized at FSU, but don't surprised if he bulks up and has a great year. Next year's Calhoun, Harrison, Norwood? Something like that. Chauncey Washington may get his scholastic business taken care of and be dominant at USC. If not Hershell Dennis is a decent prospect too. They have a sophomore who could take over though, Coleman. I've heard great things about Darby and Irons, though I haven't personally been impressed. Brian Leonard is going to be an excellent NFL player whether at fullback or power back for a grinding team. He's a wildcard in this class, but another very complete package with better size than most of the guys we're talking about this year. That's the thing about next year's class. Some nice big backs with good all around game.

Who are these guys full names and schools?
Steve Smith USC, way underrated because he... well, nevermind. Leinart just didn't look his way as much as he could have. He's a pretty freakish all around athlete who should start in the NFL after a year or two of seasoning. Better than Keary Colbert was at USC, but Colbert really disappeared so not sure what that's saying.Jarrett Hicks Texas Tech, was the 4th leading receiver on the best passing offense in the country. Not impressive, but he was double covered on every play. Great measureables and intangibles. I think he's overrated because that system is as kind to WRs as it is to QBs, but scouts are very impressed with his potential.

Jason Hill Wazoo, almost declared this year because the NFL Underclassmen Advisory Board told him he could be the top receiver in this year's class. He won't be next year, but I would have ranked him above Holmes or Jackson this year.

Next year's WRs = :thumbup:

Marshawn Lynch. Write his name down immediately for a top 10 pick in next year's draft.

Marshawn Lynch is no longer 200, but bulked up to 215 lbs and should run in the 4.4-4.5 vicinity. This guy is going to be a monster. His body is similar to Clinton Portis, only now, not in college. And he has sick and wrong moves to make defenders miss. Lynch also is a good receiver out of the backfield.

For a picture, check out the link below:

Edit: As an owner of Lynch, I'm biased, but I drafted him to my college roster because I believe what I wrote above.

FWIW ESPN's draft magazine has Kenny Irons rated as it's #10 overall senior draft prospect. :eek: The blurb, "A perfect fit for teams that use power-run schemes." Myself, I've never seen him play.The rest of their Top 10:

1. QB Brady Quinn N Dame "He boasts an impressive blend of arm strength, size and leadership. If his coverage reads and prudence continue to progress, he's a strong bet for #1 overall.

2. QB Drew Stanton Mich St. "He has all the physical tools, including size, arm strength and athleticism, to emerge as a dynamic NFL starter. Most important, he shows rare leadership intangibles.

3. OT Justin Blalock Texas

4. OLB Paul Posluszny Penn St.

5. OT Joe Thomas Wisconsin

6. RB Michael Bush Louisville "On top of his outstanding combination of size and speed, he shows good versatility as a receiver and blocker.

7. DE Gaines Adams Clemson

8. S LaRon Landry LSU

9. WR Jeff Samardzija Notred Dame "He uses his size, quickness, instincts and hands to overcome his lack of elite speed."

10. Irons RB Auburn

Kenny Irons is solid. Top 10 seems high, but who knows with a good season at Auburn this year. He's got a good mix of size and speed. And the NFL seems to like Auburn RBs.

I prefaced the post with a FWIW. It's hard for me to say on the guy though as I said I'd never seen him. At the least, he's a guy who's on the radar. Overall, I was pretty impressed by ESPN's draft mag this year. I thought it was better than TSN. However, there is a lot of variance, sliding, and guys coming out of nowhere a year from now.

Yes, it looks that way. Wynn is a 230 pound pounder. Bush is pushing 250. Peterson has good size. Lynch runs bigger than anyone near the top of this year's draft but White. Hamilton, Leonard and several others have good size. I came back to this thread because I made a mistake. Everything I said about Wynn I meant to be about Tyrone Moss (220 pounder). That's my boy. If he comes back strong from the knee, he should be very near elite status and #4 in this class. I'm surprised he is completely unmentioned in the various rankings in this thread. He really really impressed me last year, and in one of our old threads many of us were talking about him in a tier with Maroney and White if he came out early.

yes I have. I live close to Ann Arbor watch them regularly. You must be a michigan homer. he is the worst NFL RB prospect from that school in a long while and he will not have the measurables to warrant a high pick.

Rank  Player  School

1  Adrian Peterson  Oklahoma  - the guy

2  Mike Hart  Michigan  - maybe not the NFL

3  Marshawn Lynch  California  - VERY GOOD TALENT

4  Gary Russell  Minnesota - Some like him more than Maroney

5  Antonio Pittman  Ohio State - Will be replaced by frosh Chris Wells

6  Darius Walker  Notre Dame - Emerging Talent

7  Charles Jones  Miami (FL)  - Don't know him

8  Jamario Thomas  North Texas  - heard good things

9  Thomas Brown  Georgia  - GA Backfield is/was a mess

10  Andre Callender  Boston College - don't know him

11  Brandon Murphy  Miami (OH) - don't know him

My 'thoughts' are after the hyphon
Really depends on if he can stay healthy this year. He's a guy that would probably fall to the 2 - 4 round of the draft but would be a Rudi Johnson type.

I agree with the bolded part, but I still think he could make a good pro.

This mock draft may have already been posted someone on this site, but i couldn't find it.

You can see who someone thinks will be the best available players next year:

2007 Mock Draft
Good site, lots of mocks.Main problem with that specific draft is that 16 of the 32 picks are all offensive skill position players. Usually not that high unless you have one of those rare years with 7 WRs or 5 QBs taken. Expect about a dozen skill positions in a normal draft.

He has 6 WRs taken in that first round. Yes, 2007 will be a good year for WRs, but not sure 6 will be taken since the majority of them will still be juniors.

A little too tainted by the fantasy factor.

 

Benchwarmers

I'm in a college football dynasty league thats holding its 1st draft. We draft college players for one league and pro players for another. We get to keep the college players if they make it into the NFL. So there's no rookie draft each year just a draft to get college freshman. The league is a new style that I think is very unique. Here is the scoring and then I will list the positions and what spot they were drafted. Any comments would be appreciated or guys you think I should draft. The draft is only in the 11 round.(45 rounds total)

My team name is the Benchwarmers. I traded some of my pro league draft picks for college ones thats why i have so many. Remember this is a dynasty league and you get to keep your college players if they make it into the NFL>

Rosters:

Each NFL and College Roster will consist of a maximum total of 45

players with a minimum of 18 players to field a starting lineup.

There is no injured reserve list so if a player is injured your choices

are to cut him or to keep him on your roster. Free agents may be

picked up on a weekly basis and are awarded according to a team’

s record, last gets first pick. If a free agent is picked up an existing

player must be cut at the same time.

Lineups:

Offense:

1 QB/2 RB/2 WR/1 TE/1 K

I've added my blessing to some of the players who are outside the Top5 at their positions.

Thanks for the comments. Barry Jive can you think of any guys that I should draft in the next few rounds.

Thanks in advance.
Arian Foster took over the starting RB spot for the Vols last year and was their best player pretty much. with a conservative coach you know he will get the ball enough to perform well.Robert Meachem is a very talented wr that could break out if they get good QB play.

It's so early, that nobody could give you a definitive answer.  My vague early "rankings": 

Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma 6-2 218-lbs Sophmore.

Michael Bush Louisville 6-3 240-lbs Junior. 

Marshawn Lynch California 5-11 200-lbs Sophmore. 

Alley Broussard LSU 6-0 237-lbs Junior.   

Lorenzo Booker Florida State 5-11 187-lbs Junior.

Selvin Young Texas 6-0 215-lbs Junior.
Looks like a down year for RBs to me, with the exception of Peterson. I believe both 2005 and 2006 are better.
Marshawn Lynch from Cal will challenge Peterson as the top RB coming out. The only reason that he is not as well known is that he is a Pac-10 back.Tom
