This is the 2013 NFL Combine Weigh-In Recap for the running backs. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2013 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap - Running Backs

  • Alabama's Eddie Lacy is the consensus top running back in the draft and had a weigh-in that met expectations. The power back checked in at 5-foot-11 and 231 pounds. He also had good sized hands with a measurement of 9.5 inches. Lacy was listed an inch taller and 11 pounds lighter, so he is basically as advertised. Many believe that Lacy is the only running back that will be selected in the first round.

  • It was a mixed weigh-in for Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle. On the down side he had small hands (8 3/4 inches), but on the plus side he was 6-foot and 204-pounds. The early entry has the frame to add weight for the NFL after spending some time in a strength and conditioning program. If Randle adds 15 pounds that could help him to stay healthy and handle a larger workload. The 2013 running back class has a plethora of running backs who are in the 190-200 pound range, but most of them are around 5-foot-10 and won't be able to add much more weight. Randle has some physical upside.



  • Rutgers running back Jawan Jamison (5-7, 203) had a disappointing weigh-in. He had extremely small hands that measured 8 3/8 inches. That was tied for the smallest hands of any of the running backs. Hands that size could lead to Jamison having fumbling issues in the NFL. He was a workhorse back at Rutgers, but in the NFL, Jamison doesn't have the size for that large a workload. It would probably be best if Jamison is a situational back.

  • For a small speed back, Oregon's Kenjon Barner is put together well at 5-foot-9 and 196-pounds. Those solid numbers help Barner to be viewed as having the ability to take on the work load of a rotational running back. It wouldn't be surprising if Barner has one of the fastest 40-yard times at the Combine. He could stand out in the field receiving drills as well. Barner looks poised to have a combine performance that could boost his draft stock.

  • Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell was listed at 6-foot-2, 238 pounds. His actual measurements were slightly smaller (6-1, 230). Bell is a big power back and the concern with him is if he has enough speed for the NFL. His shuttle and 40 times are going to be very important for him to go on the second day of the draft.



  • Arkansas running back Knile Davis has had a couple of broken ankles over the past few seasons, so his medical exam will be inspected thoroughly by NFL teams. Davis (5-10, 227) looked like a potential starting running back in the NFL back in 2010. In 2011, he missed the season because of an ankle and last year he didn't play well for the Razorbacks. Davis also checked in with small hands (8 5/8 inches). Davis needs to perform well at the combine with a thumbs up from the medical evaluation to ensure he gets drafted.

  • A running back who passed the eyeball test was LSU's Spencer Ware. At 5-foot-10, 228-pounds Ware has serious bulk to handle the pounding of the NFL. He also had a good hand size (9 5/8 inches). With the Tigers, Ware was part of a running-back-by-committee approach. That hurt his production and opportunities, but he enters the NFL with fresh legs. Ware could be a sleeper running back that surprises in the NFL.



  • After Lacy, the consensus second-rated running back is North Carolina's Giovani Bernard. The speedy scat back was a little bit smaller than expected. The 5-foot-8, 203-pounder was at the expected weight but a couple inches shorter. Bernard should excel in the 40-yard dash and the field work. He is very quick and athletic. If Bernard blows up the Combine, he could get some teams to consider him late in the first-round.

  • Obviously, teams will want to pour over the medical evaluation on South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, but he weighed in at 5-foot-11 and 221-pounds. He showed that while he is rehabbing his injured knee he has been able to maintain his upper body weight. Lattimore's doctor, Dr. James Andrews, is at the Combine to update teams on Lattimore's rehab. If teams get good reports, that could help Lattimore to get mid-round consideration.

  • Ohio State's Zach Boren has returned to the backfield at the Combine. He started out his collegiate career as a fullback before moving to linebacker during his senior season. Boren (5-11, 238) is a better fit as a fullback in the NFL and will be working out at that position in Indianapolis.

    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?

    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?
