Dynasty draft thread, with some analytics and a little IDP, and NO mocks (2 Viewers)

WOW ... don't know the source, but very negative on Gibbs non-perfect blocked runs.
I was ready to believe that Gibbs was Kamara 2.0. He could also be Kenyan Drake. Or a better JD McKissick.

The size thing weighs on me, because if you aren't a special runner at that size, you will most likely wind up a 3rd down back who doesn't get many carries. Which is helpful for NFL teams, but caps your fantasy value.
A reminder that speed matters but is not everything...

7 RBs ran <=4.4 at the 2022 NFL combine:

2 drafted in round 2.

2 drafted in round 4.

1 drafted in round 5.

1 drafted in round 7.

1 undrafted.

Evaluate the profile as a whole and never get carried away with one input.
Seven RBs were graded solidly within Day 2 in Dane Brugler's Beast:

Bijan, Gibbs, Charbo, Achane, Spears, Roschon, Tank

Four more: Z Evans, Izzy, Kendre, Gray got R3/4 grades

The Beast released today. Haven't gotten into it yet.

I’m a big fan of players who produce in the SEC – & for that reason I’m a fan of Ray Davis & Jaylen Wright.Davis led Vanderbilt & Kentucky in rushing in back-to-back seasons (after also leading Temple in rushing as a true freshman).& broke Kentucky’s single-season TD record (20).Wright posted 146/875/10 (6.0 YPC) as a sophomore at TEN & finished 2nd in YPC (7.4) amongst ALL NCAA RB’s in 2023 (137/1013/4).Both have demonstrated tackle-breaking ability (Davis broke 51 tackles on 199 rushing attempts in 2023; Wright finished 7th out of 223 RB’s w/ 4.35 YAC/attempt).Both have posted seasons with a 90.0+ PFF Rushing Grade.Both are capable receivers (1.25+ YPRR in 2023).& both are listed at 210+ pounds.I’m very excited to see where they land on Draft Day.

Drake Maye / UNC team grade ranks

2022 Pass Blocking - 47th (61.6)
