1/12/13: Gillislee had a superb senior season for the Gators. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry while amassing 1,1152 yards and 10 touchdowns. Gillislee played hurt, yet helped push Florida to a tough road win against Teas A&M. He had impressive games against Tennessee, Bowling Green and LSU, too. He closed out the regular season by destroying Florida State to the tune of 140 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.
The senior has speed and deceptive power. Gillislee is very impressive as a blocker in blitz protection. He has really helped his draft stock this year.
Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon
Height: 5-11. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round (2013): 4-5.
1/12/13: Barner ripped off big yardage for Oregon all year as its feature back. He had 1,767 yards and 21 touchdowns and averaged 6.4 yards per carry. Barner also snagged 20 receptions for 256 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for 321 yards and five touchdowns against USC, but had some struggles against California and Stanford. The speed back is a threat to score on any carry, but he doesn't compile yards after contact.
They're my two favorite , I think running backs slip in this draft due to it being deep defense and one of these two will be their in the 4th
