So this post will serve as the initial list of Running Back prospects that I will be watching for the 2020 NFL Draft. Upon initial viewings, this class looks leaps and bounds better than the 2019 group. While the Senior class may lack star power, it doesn’t lack for talented players. The Junior class looks like it will have the potential for multiple star players.
The players listed below are posted in no particular order. They are broken down by class. As posted in the DFD State of the Union, I will only initially be watching 300 total prospects in the fall. These are the 25 RBs I am watching during the 2019 season. There are 13 seniors and 12 juniors. At some point during the season, a small list of fullbacks will be added to this list.
|Kennedy McKoy||West Virginia||Sr||6’0||201|
|Rico Dowdle||South Carolina||Sr||5’11||220|
|Jordan Cronkrite||South Florida||Sr||5’10||207|
|J.K. Dobbins||Ohio State||Jr||5’9||214|
|A.J. Dillon||Boston College||Jr||6’0||245|
|Cam Akers||Florida State||Jr||5’10||210|
|Eno Benjamin||Arizona State||Jr||5’9||201|
|Kylin Hill||Mississippi State||Jr||5’11||215|
|Stephen Carr||Southern Cal||Jr||6’0||205|
If another running back jumps out to me in the lead up to the 2019 season (or during), I will replace one on this list. I have an initial production score for each player on this list. As I watch the tape, on each this summer (or fall), the initial rankings will come together.
Throughout the next few weeks, I will be posting each position’s initial rankings.
