If for some reason they decide to RB in the first round looks like it comes down to Stewart (Oregon) or Jones (Arkansas). Most mock drafts have them grabbing an OT.

you've got to be kidding.....
mcfadden 6-2....205lbs .....4.43 / 40
jones 6-0....200lbs......4.36 / 40

jones is FASTER than mcfadden, and with his height to weight ratio, is bigger than mcfadden !!! his 4.36 in the 40 is like 3rd fastes of all the backs coming out this year !

Under the premise above... I agree... we need both, and would love to have a bigger back, to back up Willie.
I agree Preacher....Here is a list of big backs...some will project as FB in the pros. Check out Matt Forte in the 3-4 round and Jerome Felton in the 5th round.


Jonathan Stewart, Oregon
Height: 5-11. Weight: 230.
40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round: Top 15 Pick.
Jonathan Stewart has declared for the 2008 NFL Draft.
Stewart carried the ball just 15 times at Michigan, but he gained 113 yards and a touchdown in the process. His Jerome Bettis style of running could entice the Steelers or Falcons to draft him early.
Currently the best big back projected to go in the 2008 Draft. Rushed for 981 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2006. Stewart became a bigger threat in the passing game last year, increasing his receptions from seven to 20.


Rashard Mendenhall, Illinois
Height: 5-11. Weight: 224.
40 Time: 4.43.
Projected Round: Top 20 Pick.
Rashard Mendenhall has declared for the 2008 NFL Draft.
Lots of potential here. Mendenhall, who has both size and power (see his attributes), averaged 6.2 per carry in 2007. He had 19 TD's and showed good hands by catching 34 passes.


Matt Forte, Tulane
Height: 6-1. Weight: 224.
40 Time: 4.50.
Projected Round: 3-4.
Recorded four consecutive 100-yard rushing performances in 2006 before missing the final three games of the season with a knee injury. Came back in 2007 to record 23 TD's. Career average of 5.1 yards a carry.


Jehuu Caulcrick, Michigan State
Height: 6-0. Weight: 255.
40 Time: 4.65.
Projected Round: 4.
Should be a great short-yardage back in the NFL. As of Nov. 16, Jehuu Caulcrick had 21 rushing touchdowns on the 2007 season. He can catch the ball as well (15 receptions in 2006).


Jacob Hester, LSU
Height: 6-0. Weight: 228.
40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round: 4-5.
Decent blocker and ball-carrier. Scored 11 touchdowns in 2007, earning a spot on the All-SEC Second Team.


Jerome Felton, Furman
Height: 6-0. Weight: 247.
40 Time: 4.62.
Projected Round: 5.
Ran for 707 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns in 2006, and wasn't even the leading ball-carrier on the team! Jerome Felton is a touchdown machine; he scored 67 times as a Paladin. Averaged 4.6 yards per carry.


Lance Ball, Maryland
Height: 5-9. Weight: 225.
40 Time: 4.42.
Projected Round: 6-7.
Certainly has the size and speed to make it in the NFL. Ball, who splits carries with Keon Lattimore, led the team in rushing with 815 yards and 8 TDs in 2006.


Kregg Lumpkin, Georgia
Height: 6-1. Weight: 222.
40 Time: 4.53.
Projected Round: 7.
Kregg Lumpkin doesn't have break-away speed, but he can run over people. Managed to rumble for more than 100 yards against Auburn, taking advantage of Thomas Brown's injury.


BenJarvus Green-Ellis , Ole Miss
Height: 5-11. Weight: 225.
40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round: 7.
Extremely inconsistent, prospering one week and disappearing the next. Decent 40 time for his size.


Keon Lattimore, Maryland
Height: 5-11. Weight: 223.
40 Time: 4.52.
Projected Round: 7.
13 TD's in 2007. In 2007, Ray Lewis' little brother eclipsed the 100-yard barrier four times. Suffered a back injury in April. Sharee carries with Lance Ball once again. Caught 20 passes.


Chauncey Washington, USC
Height: 6-1. Weight: 220.
40 Time: 4.60.
Projected Round: FA.
Needs to rebound with a strong senior season. Injured his knee last year and has academic problems.


Austin Scott, Penn State
Height: 6-0. Weight: 222.
40 Time: 4.52.
Projected Round: FA.
Austin Scott finally got going, although it was against a Notre Dame defensive front that surrendered 33 points to Georgia Tech and 31 to Penn State. Scott rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries.
Had multiple chances to win the starting running back job prior to this season, but failed to do so. Very questionable work ethic. Coming off a knee injury, this is his only year to prove himself before the draft.


Lynell Hamilton, San Diego State
Height: 6-1. Weight: 220.
40 Time: 4.43.
Projected Round: FA.
Look at his size and 40. Why's Hamilton ranked so low? Major knee problems. He has seen his yardage decrease from 1,087 as a freshman, to 819 as a sophomore to just 145 last year.

i know he is mentioned everywhere but kevin smith is the guy i am excited to see in the NFL. he is a normal type back at which he is average height, weight, speed,hands, but has the skill that only certain people get. those people are the reggie bush's, ladanian tomlinsons, barry sanders.

I really enjoyed watching Smith run. He reminds of Alexander, in that he runs with a great combination of vision, speed, power and balance. He's going to be a good one at the next level.

As much as I like Stewart, I really dont think that he will be there at 23rd when the Steelers are on the clock and I dont see us trading up into the top 20 to get him. Now, an offensive tackle like Gosder Cherilus at 6'7" 315 lbs from Boston College, I wouldnt mind seeing this guy in black n gold next year. And maybe even the big OG Roy Schuening at 6' 4" 318 lbs. from Oregon St. This guy has looked very good against the likes of Ellis and co. in the first 2 days of practice for the senior bowl on saturday afternoon. These are both very big holes that the Steelers need to fill.l.
