View Full Version : Miami Dolphins Community Draft Board: Running back

03-30-2011, 02:15 PM
After just under 1000 people having voted, the top five on our running back draft board is as follows:

1. Mark Ingram, Alabama
2. Mikel Leshoure, Illinois
3. Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech
4. Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma St.
5. DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma

No real surprises in the top four. Ingram was far and away the leading vote getter, receiving over 80% of the first-place votes. Leshoure and Williams round out the top three according to most draft analysts and it seems as though most Dolphin fans agree.

Kendall Hunter is a guy drawing a lot of buzz because of how complete of a back he is. He's a guy who can carry the rock on early downs but is versatile enough to stay in on third down and either catch the football out of the backfield or stay in and pick up the blitz. He's one of the most impressive blockers out of the backfield I've seen in recent memory.

I'd rank them:


But, 2-4 are very close in my book - different backs that I like a lot for their own respective reasons. I don't have any especially close to Ingram.

I would love to trade back in the draft and pick up Ponder and any one of Ingram, Hunter, Leshoure, R. Williams in round 2.

It's inevitable that we will trade down in the draft

I say draft in this order


followed by a gaurd in the 3rd round and a TE in the 4th

If we are going after Ponder or Mallet we will not be able to trade down very far and likely will only be able to pick up a 3rd taking us out of the running for the majority of those RB's.

I think we'll use our two 3rds on a TE/OG (DJ Williams/Rackley) and then double up on complimentary RB's in the 4th and 5th. I'm thinking Delone Carter and Dion Lewis. Would absolutely love Taiwan Jones though, but I think his stock has been skyrocketing.

Sign me up for either Taiwan Jones or Shane Vereen in the 3rd. No sense in going RB early with this deep class.

Except when you can draft a RB that is clearly the best among them all.
