2007 NFL Draft running back rankings

Frank Coyle's analysis of the class:

This is only an average class of seniors, a group which lacks a spectacular blue-chip prospect that would warrant a high draft selection.


POSITION
GRADE
B

However, the talented group of underclassmen makes this a slightly above average class.

It is a deep group overall, with a few potential starting feature backs. The average senior class encouraged many underclassmen to declare at this position.

Juniors Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch, Darius Walker, Antonio Pittman and Michael Bush will all be first day selections. Peterson should be a top-five selection, while Lynch will likely be taken in the middle of the first round.
