Default 2008 RB class

This has the potential to become a legendary class of RB's. To be sure, not all these guys will pan out (and some of them haven't declared yest), but just take a look at this list and think of the potential!

Darren McFadden
Felix Jones
Johnathan Stewart
Ray Rice
Mike Hart
Rashard Mendenhall
Kevin Smith
Jacob Hester
Steve Slaton

Too bad we don't need (and can't afford to take one in the first round) a RB this year.

Hester is projected at fullback... He might be available in the fourth. There is a chance he could end up here.

Yeah Jones declaring for the draft is suprising. He finally gets the chance to show how good he can be without McFadden there and he leaves. My guess is he didn't want to risk injury since he will probably be a first rounder already.

yeah but there's a huge difference between a top 5 pick,than a 20-25 pick, as far as contracts go. if jones stays, and continues being as good as he was this year,he's a lock for top 5 in 09. did you see where lauranitus, is goin back to OSU??? that throws a monkey wrench into the draft !!! at least the pats won't get him !!!
