No top 10 guy or even sure fire first round guy, but seems to be some talent in the mid rounds

With the emphasis in college on spread/passing offenses, there is less opportunity for RB’s to develop and/or put up numbers that grab the attention of scouts and media.
I think the days of the pound&ground RB’s is waning fast. What they are looking for these days is Alvin Kamara type RB, who can run pass routes as good as a WR.

You maybe see Jacobs go day one and day two another 2-3 RB's might go. This RB class not the best and IMO got a lot of guys who will be role players and even more who are just 3rd down backs and ST players.

I think there is a nice selection of RBs with value in Rds 3-5. I don't know that I would draft one before Rd 3.

I would take Jacobs rd 1 and Henderson late rd 2 early 3. Not too big on the rest until after rd 3

I see Tony Pollard/Memphis getting some love as a late rounder on several recent mocks.
Great receiver as a RB and one of the best return guys in the draft.
He’d be an interesting late round choice
