Kerryon Johnson – Auburn
RB 6’0″ 212 lbs
When comparisons of Le’veon Bell are being thrown around, there is an extra level of scrutiny that goes into a film evaluation; that’s something Kerryon Johnson is going to have to live with throughout the draft process.
Royce Freeman – Oregon
RB 5’11” 229 lbs
Royce Freeman has been on the radar of dynasty owners since posting a 1,300 yard season as a freshman in 2014. Although a junior-year knee injury tempered expectations, Freeman put up solid numbers again at Oregon in 2017.
James Conner – Pittsburgh RB 6’2″ 240lbs
James Conner is immense. He looks like a middle linebacker carrying the ball, and he hits like one too, initiating contact at the end of runs. He is primarily a downhill/ north/south runner, and although Conner can catch the ball a little out of the backfield, he needs to be moving forward at the catch point to be productive.
