Chris Polk: 5 Biggest Pros and Cons of 2012 NFL Draft Prospect

Personally, I think Chris Polk has the potential to be the best running back to come out of this draft.

That said, he has some work to do. The running back class this year is not great, having Trent Richardson and everyone else in his tracks.

But there is potential for some very good runners of the future.

Polk is one of them.

Right now, Polk is the fifth-best runner on sidelinescouting.com, but is ranked 60th overall, which means he could hear his name called in Round 2 Friday night. At 5'11" and 215 pounds, he is a load to bring down.

He is one of only seven players in Pac-12 Conference history to top 4,000 yards rushing. Polk has 30 total career TDs (rushing and receiving), tied for sixth. He also holds the UW record for career 100-yard games (21) and, along with Napoleon Kaufman, is one of only two Huskies ever to rush for 1,000 yards in three different seasons.

Here is what the scouting report had to say about how effective he will be in the NFL.
