MOCK DRAFT

RB Rookies

 

Chubb, Nick - CLE

Chubb, Nick

Chubb was selected in the second round of the draft and joins a crowded Browns backfield that also includes Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson Jr. Chubb is a big, tough, bruising back at 5-foot-11, 227 pounds. He lacks speed (4.50-second 40-yard dash) but will do most of his damage between the tackles on early downs and at the goal line. Chubb does not have a clear path to carries as a rookie and is unlikely to offer much as a receiver (13 receptions during his final three collegiate seasons). He could flirt with flex numbers if he overtakes Hyde, but that may take some time. Chubb should be on benches for the time being.


Barkley, Saquon - NYG

Barkley, Saquon

Barkley was selected by New York with the second overall pick in the draft. The ex-Nittany Lion combines a big frame (6 feet, 233 pounds) with exceptional speed, vision, elusiveness and receiving ability. Similar to the likes of Le'Veon Bell, David Johnson and Todd Gurley II in recent seasons, Barkley is expected to be an every-down workhorse who immediately pushes for 350-plus touches and 10-plus touchdowns. Barkley sports elite upside and is immediately a fringe top-five fantasy running back. He is likely to be selected in the first round of most 2018 fantasy drafts and should be the top pick in all rookie drafts.


Penny, Rashaad - SEA

Penny, Rashaad

The Seahawks appear committed to reverting back to a run-first offense, and selecting Penny with a first-round pick during April's draft further confirmed that game plan. The San Diego State product has good size at 5-foot-11, 220 pounds and is a downhill, elusive back with solid receiving skills. He's not the fastest guy (4.46-second 40-yard dash), but that didn't stop him from averaging 7.8 YPC while managing 10-plus yards on 20 percent of his attempts last season. Penny's 74 forced missed tackles and 110.2 elusive rating were tops in this season's class, according to Pro Football Focus. Penny is expected to be a workhorse as a rookie and can also help out with returns. He is a solid RB2 target.


Michel, Sony - NE

Michel, Sony

Michel has the size and skill set to emerge as a featured back, but he is likely headed for committee duties after New England selected him in the first round of April's draft. The Georgia product is well-built at 5-foot-11, 214 pounds and is a physical, downhill runner with pretty good quickness. Michel averaged 7.9 YPC, including 2.7 after initial contact last year. Michel is a capable receiver and blocker, which supplies him with big upside down the road, but expect him to share snaps with James White and Rex Burkhead in 2018. Of course, even if limited to 200-230 touches, Michel could score 10 touchdowns in the Patriots' high-scoring offense. He is a flex target.


Hines, Nyheim - IND

Hines, Nyheim

The Colts drafted Hines in the fourth round of the draft. Hines is an explosive, elusive and fast back, who figures to do most of his damage as a pass-catcher and returner. At 5-foot-8, 198 pounds, he simply lacks the frame to support a three-down gig and goal-line work in the pros. Hines did a nice job after contact at NC State last season (2.4 YAC), but he ran for a loss too often (20 percent) and his receiving efficiency was weak (5.9 YPR). The Colts' backfield is wide open, but Hines is a poor bet for anything more than situational work behind Marlon Mack and likely Jordan Wilkins.


Wilkins, Jordan - IND

Wilkins, Jordan

Wilkins is an intriguing 2018 sleeper after the running back-needy Colts picked him in the fifth round of the draft. The Ole Miss product averaged 6.5 YPC last season, while converting 64 percent of his third downs and running for 5-plus yards on 41 percent of his carries and 10-plus yards on 19 percent. His 1.6 YAC is a red flag, but per Pro Football Focus, he forced a missed tackle for every 4.3 touches, which is fourth in the class. Wilkins (6-foot-1, 216 pounds) is a big power back with decent speed, agility and receiving chops. With only Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines in his way, Wilkins is a sneaky bet to lead the Colts' backfield in 2018. Take a late flier.


Freeman, Royce - DEN

Freeman, Royce

Freeman was selected by Denver in the third round of the draft after posting an FBS record 5,621 rushing yards during his time at Oregon. Freeman averaged 5.9 YPC (2.3 YAC) during his four seasons with the Ducks. He is a big back at 5-foot-11, 229 pounds and has pretty good speed (4.54-second 40-yard dash) for his frame. Freeman is unlikely to be heavily involved as a receiver in the NFL but did catch 79 passes during 51 games at Oregon. It's fair to wonder if 947 carries have worn Freeman down a bit, but the 22-year-old figures to immediately step into a large role in Denver, with Devontae Booker as his top competition. Freeman is a back-end RB2.


Johnson, Kerryon - DET

Johnson, Kerryon

Johnson was selected by Detroit in the second round of the draft. He is 5-foot-11, 213 pounds without much speed, but he excelled as a pass-catcher and blocker at Auburn. Johnson could eventually work his way into three-down duties, but he's entering a crowded Lions backfield that also includes early-down and goal-line specialist LeGarrette Blount, passing-down specialist Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah. Johnson could push for 200 touches as a rookie, but his ceiling is likely limited by the Lions' committee attack. He is a fringe flex.


Kelly, John - LAR

Kelly, John

Kelly is an interesting handcuff target after the Rams selected him in the sixth round as a potential backup to Todd Gurley II. Kelly is a tough 5-foot-10, 216 pounds, but he lacks speed and proved to be very inconsistent in terms of efficiency in 2017 -- his only season with a significant workload in the FBS. He averaged 4.1 YPC, which is very poor, but 2.4 came after initial contact, which is solid. He forced one missed tackle for every 4.5 touches, which ranked sixth in the class, but he lost yards on 27 percent of his 189 carries (easily worst). Kelly caught a hefty 37 passes last season but averaged only 8.1 YPR. Kelly could sneak onto the fantasy radar if Gurley suffers an injury this season.
