We are at the point of the year where the prospects are preparing for the combine and every "draft expert" has their "big board" and their list of players who they feel are the best at their respective positions. I am no different.
Now it's time to focus on to the running backs. The 2010 running back class, to me, is really good at the top with a few players in the middle rounds that could develop into very good backs depending on where they end up.
CJ Spiller is lightning in a bottle. Jonathan Dwyer is a bigger back who fits a zone blocking scheme. Jahvid Best is a back that is a smaller version of Spiller, while Joe McKinght is a back that may not have Spiller or Best's speed, but can go the distance anytime he touches the ball. Then there is Dexter McCluster from Ole Miss. He is a back that can line up at running back, wide receiver, or quarterback in a "Wild Cat" formation.
Here are my top 10 running backs that are in the 2010 draft.
1. CJ Spiller- Clemson
2. Jonathan Dwyer- Georgia Tech
3. Jahvid Best- Cal
4. Anthony Dixon- Mississippi St.
5. Joe McKnight- USC
6. Dexter McCluster- Ole Miss
7. LeGarrette Blount- Oregon
8. Ryan Mathews- Fresno St.
9. Toby Gerhart- Stanford
10. Montario Hardesty- Tennessee
