As we start to become more and more familiar with the 2014 recruiting class, a good way to really give you an idea of how a recruit plays is by comparing him to a more familiar recruit. We recently took a look at the top QB prospects and compared them to NFL QBs who we're more familiar with, and this time around we'll be staying in the offensive backfield.
This read will be focusing on the top 10 RB prospects and comparing them a RB in the NFL. These comparisons are not going to be generic ones of the sort or just shots in the dark. I've studied these runners and really gave a lot of thought into which RB in the NFL they most closely resemble.
Comparisons and adding players to a scout's "player memory bank" is critical and it's always a great exercise for evaluators, which I why I really enjoy these types of reads. Here are the NFL comparisons for each top 10 RB prospect in the 201 class.
