I'd be surprised if Stacy made it to the 5th, I've read 3rd-4th round for him in some places. For that 5th range I think Lonnie Pryor would be a great add, a FB (5'11 230) who runs well: big guy who bangs blocking or running, very good blocker particularly in space, nice leverage and positioning when blocking with his strong lower-body, good feet for his size being a former RB, nice straight-line speed. This video does a nice job showing both blocking and carrying. #24.

The ones I like are;
Giovani Bernard - UNC
Knile Davis - Arkansas
Le'veon Bell - MSU
Mike Gilislee - FLA
Theo Riddick - ND
Marcus Lattimore - So. Carolina
Lonnie Pryor - FSU - listed as a FB but I think this kid could be perfect for the 1 back set Philbin wants to utilise.
Ray Graham - Pitt
Rex Burkhead - Neb
someone mentioned john franklin. I didn't look at mock drafts, but he was one that came to my mind after looking on nfl.com and seeing the running back evaluations. This is what I saw and liked reading from john franklin "Admittedly, I wasn't a huge fan of Franklin's prior to this season, but my evaluation quickly changed. Like Ellington, Franklin boasts outstanding straight-line speed and great vision to find back-side lanes. And once he gets to the second level, Franklin makes tacklers miss with shifty hips. Projection: Second round"-
I like when I see great vision and shifty hips, speed can be overrated sometimes, what gets runningbakcs good yards is their ability to see the cut backs and small gaps very quickly and their ability to break tackles and make guys miss. Great vision helps find the gaps and shifty hips means he can make a defense miss in open field.
christine michael seems good to even though he's had injures, but if picked in later rds he's worht risk to me. He does have girl name though for his first name ha..thought I won't hold that against him
I like Miguel Maysonet from Stony Brook
Rex Burkhead late. Guy's a baller...
Pending how we fare with our first four picks and whether we have solidly addressed our needs, I would use our 2nd third round pick and grab Lattimore in a heartbeat. I have followed this kid from his days at Byrnes HS and he is a special athlete and a special person. He will be healthy again and sooner than anyone ever expected.
Leveon Bell in the mid rds.
