Him and Gainwell are my favorite non-Tier 1 dudes.

Deep sleepers: Khalil Herbert and Chris Evans



I personally like Jefferson, Gainwell, and both NC backs more than Etienne.

I understand where you're coming from.. Harris is the only RB that has the potential to move up into his own tier if he tests well (I suspect he won't though)

I don't think Najee's testing matters and I don't think there's a reason to elevate him above ETN nor Williams. I think the line is real blurry between all 3 of them. They are all different, but their pro/con combinations net similar results.


Testing always matters. Najee will be a good RB regardless of his metrics.. but if he pushes out a 4.5 his best comp becomes Steven Jackson who was an absolute monster.

Najee will probably run a 4.5-4.6 and given his skill set that is absolutely fine.

I'm expecting a 4.6+; which is fine because he's 230 with that Skillset... but if he's actually fast, man.. his upside is insane and should bump him up a lot of people's boards.

the same crime as saying Jaret Patterson has the ability to out produce every name on that list [-X



I would bet any amount of money you didn’t even know who he was until the 400 yard game was on sports center.

No...i watched him a few games. And i didnt even think that 400 yds was impressive vs the team he played against. That MAC division doesn't play defense. I thought he was starting to get too much hype after those big games...but then he came back down to earth. Maybe people realized how trash that division was and how good BUF was compared to them. BUF was dominant in every way and he had monster holes.

I don’t think Etienne is Gio lite,
Faster than Gio, with a frame to get to 220 LBs.
He showed some good between the tackles film. That was the best aspect of him returning this year, imo. He was stronger, more mature , with all the speed.
Edit: more Reggie Bush than gio, imo.

rhamondre stevenson. dude shows some really good vision, balance, and cutting ability for his size. lacks the burst or extra gear, but watching him run and decipher run angles then cut on them is a joy.

Stevenson or Samajae Perine; who's better?

good question. i'll say i like stevenson's nifty feet and vision more. i also like his work as a receiver out of the backfield.

I'll take Perine 10/10 times out of college (who was more productive on both the ground and the receiving game in college).

So we're rewarding players for not seizing their backfields now? :lol:

I'm mostly kidding. He's a decent flier in a class full of ambiguity

Oddly enough, I just read that the Niners are interested in him.....article said something about him being suspended last year but didn't say why, was it academics or is he a scumbag? Based on the Niners interest I figured he was into slapping women around or something.
