Sanders declared though, I think can be a sleeper for sure as I think he has the skill set to do well on all 3 downs

Wasn't he the #2 RB in the country out of HS? Not sure he's much of a sleeper. NFL FO's know about him.

Also maybe I missed it but why is no one talking about Sanders (Penn St) or Taylor (Wis)?

Sanders declared. He bores me.

Taylor is a true Sophomore and not eligible for the draft.

Watched some David Montgomery tape and he looked like Kareem Hunt. Fair assessment?

Difficult guy to get a beat on. Great in pass-pro, I give him that - really looks for work and seems to enjoy it. Need to see more, but other first impressions were that he reminded me of TJ Yeldon as a runner.

So good RBs bore you?   ?

I didn't see a lot of him, but what I saw was good.  Not Barkley dazzling, but good.  Good vision, burst, hands etc.

What elite traits does he have? Nothing he does is overly exciting. He's average in every area which will keep him on an NFL roster, but he has no traits to set himself apart from the other NFL RB's. Boring.

What are you talking about?  I just said he was good, not elite.   Good "boring" players help teams win a SB every year.  And he is IMO more than "average."  But we'll see.

Strikes me as a more physical/better vision James White, who should be able to run between the tackles a little better, but has that all around game that could serve a team well.

Sanders is an average back that has significant fumbling issues. That’s not a recipe to stay around very long.

Name some good RB's that don't have at least 1 elite trait.

Who is the best RB that will go in the 5th or later?

Devine Ozigbo, kid had a ridiculous senior year.

Ronnie Anderson might slide with his injuries.
Matt Colburn is good.
Qadree Ollison and Darrin Hall from Pittsburgh.
 

Did Reggie Corbin declare? I really like him.

If he's the Illinois RB than no he did not declare. Him and Ke'Shawn Vaughn stayed in school and I really like both of them as a 3rd down/receiving/change of pace RBs.
