Its not a good draft if your favorite team is in need of a feature ball carrier.  There may be some value in rounds two and three but there are no Trent Richardson’s or Adrian Peterson’s to be found in this class.

The draft eligible fullbacks offer no top 100 choice and its a thin but diverse group. Teams can find pure lead blockers, west coast players as well as fullbacks who can double as special teamers.
