1. Giovani Bernard, North Carolina
Giovani Bernard is a triple-threat at rushing, receiving and returning. Possessing excellent athleticism and ball-carrier vision, Bernard could sneak into Round No. 1 this April.
2. Eddie Lacy, Alabama
Although Eddie Lacy doesn't match the NFL potential of Mark Ingram or Trent Richardson, he's still a reliable running back. He can slam inside and has the athleticism to quickly bounce outward, which will earn him a contributing role as a rookie.
3. Stepfan Taylor, Stanford
Stepfan Taylor is a bulldozer, period. And with the talent to run every would-be tackler over, Taylor also brings a quick burst through an open gap. He'll be a competitive advantage in any short-yard situation.
4. Montee Ball, Wisconsin
A former Heisman Trophy finalist, Montee Ball simply knows how to find the end zone. As a complete ball-carrier, he can slam inside or take a toss and beat everyone to the edge. Factor in impressive agility, and he'll impact well in 2013.
5. Andre Ellington, Clemson
Andre Ellington has arguably the most balance of any back this draft class. His acceleration and agility makes him a tough guy to tackle, which bodes well on third down and inside the red zone.
6. Joseph Randle, Oklahoma State
One of the best dual-threat backs in college football, Joseph Randle sliced over, through and around defenses for Oklahoma State. Easily at least a third-down back early in his career, Randle supplies the prospective talent to quickly develop as an every-down back.
7. Johnathan Franklin, UCLA
Provided Johnathan Franklin doesn't cough up the rock that often, he'll become a solid No. 2 back in pro football with No. 1 potential. Franklin will compile solid yards after contact and push the line forward, which does enhance his marketability. Include some good lateral quickness, and all he must do is cut down on fumbles.
8. Le'Veon Bell, Michigan State
The only real concern with Le'Veon Bell is having been utilized an immense amount by Michigan State. He was fed 382 carries last season, which only gets amplified when considering he plays in the Big Ten. Nevertheless, he'll be a solid short-yardage back and is capable of making plays out of the backfield.
9. Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
Obviously, durability is a major concern for Marcus Lattimore. But when on the field he was a dominant ball-carrier for South Carolina. He can punish defenders on the interior, slip to the outside and outrun defensive backs and bull through would-be tacklers when needed. Provided he can stay healthy, Lattimore will be a great NFL back.
10. Jawan Jamison, Rutgers
Jawan Jamison is an underrated dual-threat back, because it's simple to overlook the Big East. Interestingly enough, he does have the size advantage to punch the gut of a defense and beat anyone covering him man-to-man.
1. Kyle Juszczyk, Harvard
Kyle Juszczyk was a dominant fullback for Harvard. Its offense was among the most prolific, and the Crimson were impressive on the ground. Juszczyk was a key component for lead-blocking and the overall running game.
2. Zach Boren, Ohio State
Ohio State was able to see the success of Braxton Miller outside the pocket, because Zach Boren helped establish a strong traditional running game.
3. Lonnie Pryor, Florida State
Florida State ranked No. 24 in rushing offense last season. Lonnie Pryor was a crucial part of that, as the fullback blasted for eight rushing scores and averaged eight yards per attempt.
4. Braden Wilson, Kansas State
Kansas State scored 42 rushing touchdowns in 2012, and a huge part of Collin Klein's Heisman candidacy was the ground game. Credit Braden Wilson for much of that, because he cleared interior paths for the dual-threat quarterback.
5. Alex Singleton, Tulsa
Alex Singleton was a beast for Tulsa in 2012. He scored 24 touchdowns despite only averaging four yards per rush. In short, he was the go-to guy inside the red zone, and his size is a massive competitive advantage.
6. Eric Breitenstein, Wofford
Wofford ranked No. 2 in rushing offense in the FCS during 2012. That level of consistent production doesn't happen without a fullback like Eric Breitenstein. Although he may appear undersized for the position, Breitenstein's quickness and willingness to constantly slam up the gut makes him an appealing prospect.
7. Michael Zordich, Penn State
Penn State once again had a bruising ground game, and Michael Zordich made a strong impact. Along with his blocking ability, Zordich also scored four times and accounted for 448 total yards.
8. Tommy Bohanon, Wake Forest
Tommy Bohanan is certainly a reliable fullback. But he's also capable of being the dependable checkdown target, because he caught 23 passes for 208 yards and scored five times last season.
9. Richard Samuel, Georgia
Running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall of Georgia each averaged six-plus yards per attempt throughout 2012. Well, give props to Richard Samuel as a contributor to this success. Not to mention he did help on special teams and got 3.6 yards per rush.
10. Taimi Tutogi, Arizona
Taimi Tutogi is a versatile fullback for Arizona. With the talent to block and then slip to the flats as a receiver, Tutogi's athleticism will earn him a look from pro football.
