Here are the updated running back rankings. There have been some minor changes since the combine and, as with the receivers, there will be even more once the NFL weighs in on these players. And, of course, once we have landing spots and depth charts to factor into the equation.

I’ll have skinnys for every player post draft. I’ve covered the bulk of these players in the podcasts, so if you are looking for more, just hit play.

I still have a strong top four and they are tightly grouped as far as talent goes. After that, Perine and Conner have their own tier to themselves and rest are pretty tightly bunched until you get to Clement. This is definitely a strong class and I suspect we’ll see about 7-10 names called in the first two days.
