This is the 2013 NFL Combine Stock Report for the running backs. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

2013 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Running Backs

Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin
Montee Ball had one of the slower times of the running backs in Indianapolis, clocking in at 4.66. He also had pedestrian showings in the vertical (32 inches) and broad jump (9-11). This is not going to erase the belief that Ball is nothing more than a Big Ten plodder with tons of mileage.

Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
Le'Veon Bell, the latest Big Ten plodder, weighed in at 230, which is eight pounds less than his listed weight with the Spartans. It's important for Bell to show teams that he has some burst, so we'll have to see if the weight loss translates.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Le'Veon Bell ran well at his size, managing a 4.52. It looks like the weight loss paid off, as Bell might have convinced some teams that he's capable of being more than just another Big Ten plodder.

Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas
Knile Davis had the fourth-smallest hands of all the running backs at the Combine (8 5/8 inches). However, that's overshadowed by what he did Sunday. He ran an unofficial 4.30 40 with a 1.49 10-yard split, which was amazing. He was also excellent in the drills. Davis has been banged up the past couple of years, so he needed a quality showing in Indianapolis.

Jawan Jamison, RB, Rutgers
Jawan Jamison had the smallest hands of all the running backs at the Combine, as they measured in at 8 3/8 inches. It's likely that Jamison will have a fumbling problem at the next level, so this could deter teams from considering him in the second round.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Jamison's freefall continued in Indianapolis. Being 5-7, 203, Jamison needed a fast 40. He ran 4.68 officially with a horrific 1.66 10-yard split.

Onterio McCalebb, RB, Auburn
Onterio McCalebb was trending on Twitter (follow me @walterfootball) when he ran an unofficial 4.21. Chris Johnson expressed concern, realizing his record of 4.25 was in jeopardy. McCalebb ended up with a 4.34, but that was still very impressive, as was his 1.45 10-yard split. McCalebb is just 5-10, 168, but teams may envision him as a Darren Sproles-type player, though Sproles is much bigger at 190.

Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Marcus Lattimore weighed in at 5-11, 221 pounds with 9 7/8-inch hands. He obviously won't be working out Sunday, but the big news is that there is optimism surrounding Lattimore's progress. He still has a long way to go, and may not be able to play in 2013, but it's sounding like he could be ready by 2014.

Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M
Christine Michael was one of the top Combine performers on Sunday. Despite measuring in at 5-10, 220, Michael ran an unofficial 4.41 with a 1.51 10-yard split. He was also tops in the vertical at 43 inches. Michael enjoyed a great East-West Shrine week, so he's been moving up draft boards throughout this entire process.

Robbie Rouse, RB, Fresno State
Robbie Rouse is another small running back who didn't run well. Rouse, at 5-6, 190, had an official 40 of 4.80 with a 10-yard split of 1.64. Both numbers were absolutely awful and could cause him to go undrafted. His broad jump was also pedestrian (9-6).

Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
Stepfan Taylor doesn't have much explosion, so it's not very promising that he measured in at 5-9, 214 at Friday's weigh-in. His hands were just 8 5/8 inches. Taylor is not in the first four rounds of my 2013 NFL Mock Draft.

I think you should place soehmting like the my player mode and since nba live is made by ea sports what better way to do your my player with your own face. So i think you should add gameface to the nba live series and the would sure enough drag live fans and 2k fans to play this great game. Also instead of piling tattoos over another we should have tattoo template like full sleeves or have sleeves and more options on the neck tattoo. That would make this game much better

, many of the sillier Kings plyaers won't pass to Jimmer such as Cousins or Thorton, somehow failing to notice him over some other plyaers on the team. In fact, more than once Counsins has turned the ball over passing elsewhere, rather than pass to a clearly open Jimmer. You can see him look over to Jimmer, see he is open, then turn away and force the ball to a highly covered Garcia or someone else, only to lose the ball. What is that? I don't want to say the White men can't jump comment, but it clearly appears that the minority player on the Kings has to struggle with both the coach and player attitude mind set. Maybe he should get a better chance elsewhere. With time, he will make a good offensive threat, and is clearly better at defense than we all thought.

That the "unofficial" times are so misleading is ridiculous. Why even have them anymore if they will be almost 1/10th of a second off?

No Zac Stacy? everyone over looks him for the most part check his number and they match up pretty close to Doug Martin last year, not to mention Stacy has great stats in the SEC, someone is going to get a late round steal kids a beast

Sucks that I couldn't participate in other drills. That's not my real 40 guys, I felt something at about the 30 line.

OK, I'll admit Knile Davis RB from Arkansas has some small hands, but every other thing he did at the combine was amazing! 4.37 40 time, 1.49 10 sec split, and while having a 31 bench press for a running back seems pointless, it will def help him hold onto the ball and be very successful as a blocker! I wouldn't be surprised if someone doesn't take a chance on him in the late second round, even with his injury history. He had a great combine!

McCaleb's time was a full tenth of a second slower than Chris Johnson. 4.21 was his unofficial time. Being that he only weighs 168, and that his frame is slight, he doesn't have much of a future in the NFL.

@Salim Shaikh - Because Tommy Bohanon had 36 reps? Thats probably why.

Mat is right about the bench and running backs, a better test would be a squat test, that'd really show who the power backs are. But I still don't get how all these Wisconsin maulers aren't putting up good strength numbers.

People need to get it through their skulls that bench press is a WEAK indicator of a backs power or strength. A thick lower body, balance, and leg drive are better indicators of strength.

Ball's stock is not going to fall.

You list Tommy Bohanon as having 36 reps. What's the deal?
