Where would Zamir White be ranked, if he came out this year?

IMO, he’d be in a similar tier as Harris. Different set of skills, but they add up to top of position.
White is more Chubb, Harris is more Henry.
Please argue!

Id have him in tier 2. I believe Najee is in his own tier. Id have white as RB3 behind Javonte but Id take him ahead of ETN I think unless ETN lands in a dream scenario

Yeah, some people do.
I like his quick feet, transition to power.
Smart runner. Always looking for the smallest angle to exploit. Which he does.
Not break away speed , but enough.
Strong lower body. Hard to tackle, low center of gravity. Tough to hit with his small adjustments.
No question about his between the tackles skill. Enough speed and angle/dip to hit the corner.
Decent hands, willing to block and sound when he does.
Very solid back.

I hope this is how most my drafts go. Curious to see what the NFL thinks of Gainwell

I know i am in the minority here, but i just don't see it. He has vision and good hands, but i don't see the breakaway speed. Honestly, i think his running style will get himself hurt in the NFL. He leaves his feet and drives into defenders too often for an NFL RB.

IMHO

It's possible that can be coached out of him.

It's also possible that he can maintain that play style for a few years before it catches up to him.

As with any player (well almost any player) his floor and ceiling will be set by what team he lands with. So I would value him really only on that. I would hope that at least through his first 2-4 years he will be 'fine', and from there we can wonder about play style and work load as he moves into his mid-late 20s.

Stevie Scott from Indiana is an interesting guy I'd encourage people to check out.

Junior declare, true freshman breakout 6'2 231lbs with a 3 down skillset and a nice jump cut with decent burst.

I can honestly say I haven't watched Indiana play football in a long, long time. :lol:

I'll check him out.

Najee is in his own tier btw. To put Etienne, who is Gio Bernard lite, in the same universe as Harris is a crime.

travis etienne ...I mean Gio Bernard light

Travis Etienne looked bigger and better at Pro Day.

In a workout for NFL scouts, the former Clemson running back weighed in at 215 pounds, 16 more than last August when the Tigers started fall camp. But he turned in back-to-back 40-yard dash times of 4.40 seconds. That would've been second-best among running backs in the 2020 NFL combine, behind only Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor now of the Indianapolis Colts.

We get it stalker, you like Etienne, I see him as an RBBC piece. Time will tell who is right.

Let's move on.
