The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

Joshua Kelley, UCLA

Zach Moss, Utah

I don't have time to go super in depth at the moment, but Zach Moss would easily be an end of the 1st Round type RB if RB were as highly valued as they used to be. Thus, he could conceivably go late 1st-early 2nd or his injury history could see him be one of those guys struggling to rise above the 6th round, if he's even drafted. His talent is undeniable and he has production to match. 

Kelley is frustrating. He's by far the best player on a not-so-good team. Little bit of an injury bug. Chip Kelly is known for churning out great college RBs that don't really amount to anything in the pros. Like Moss, someone could fall in love with him and take a stab somewhere in the 2nd-3rd or he might go entirely undrafted.

Thoughts on Cam Akers?

Stud, made a horrible decision to go to FSU, had he went to another P5 school, he would be a household name. He could be the Nick Chubb (minus the injury) of this class

I see so much Kareem Hunt in Zach Moss’ game. I’m not saying he’ll have the instant production as Hunt had but from running style, balance, quickness, patience and even body make up they are super similar for me.

Probably really regretting picking FSU over Ohio State right about now.

Yeah some team in the middle rounds is going to like him a lot.  Has great power and can run inside and outside, surprisingly good in the open field as well.  

 

In terms of guys who are great in a phone booth without awesome blocking, Reggie Corbin is one of those guys.  Awesome make you miss ability in the open field and very versatile back who can do a lot of things.  Also Kylin Hill is as good as some of the higher rated backs, just does not have the talent offensively to open things up for him like others have.  Quietly having a great season on a team where barely anyone could name a receiver on that Miss State roster honestly.  Yet Hill is still productive which helps show his talent.    Similar with Moss, everyone knows he is getting the ball yet they still cannot stop him.

I feel like Rakeem Boyd might be getting more attention if he was on a better team too. 3rd in the SEC in rushing and averaging nearly 7 YPC. Doesn't have much wiggle but good combo of straight line speed and some power. Not sure if he'll declare early or not and he can't seem to handle more than 15 carries a game but seems to produce even with everyone gunning for him.

I see Chris Carson at OK St when I watch Boyd run. Admittedly knew nothing about him till I saw your post similarly to how I first came on to Carson, someone mentioned him in here. Love the no nonsense, bully type RBs who have athleticism to be successful in other aspects of the position as well.
