  1. Jaylen Samuels, FB, N.C. State
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 223.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2018): 2-3.

    11/4/17: Samuels has 56 receptions for 474 yards and three touchdowns in 2017. On the ground, he is averaging 5.4 yards per carry for 209 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Samuels is a unique prospect for the next level. The senior is listed as a tight end, plays some H-back, and also gets split out wide. In speaking with scouts, they like Samuels, and some think that his best fit would come as a third-down running back. They think he has really good hands, is a nice receiver, and could also run the rock in those situations. They think that Samuels could be tried as a fullback as well.

    7/17/17: Samuels has been a productive player for the Wolfpack, but he needs to improve his lead blocking for the NFL. As a junior, Samuels snagged 55 receptions for 565 yards and seven touchdowns. He also had 33 carries for 189 yards and six scores. In 2015, Samuels caught 65 passes for 597 yards and seven touchdowns. He also made 56 carries, averaging 6.6 yards per attempt, with 368 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.





  2. Dimitri Flowers, FB, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 239.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.88.
    Projected Round (2018): 4-6.

    11/4/17: Flowers has 11 carries for 23 yards with four touchdowns as a runner. He has 19 receptions for 290 yards and three touchdowns, too.

    7/17/17: Flowers is thick lead blocker for the Sooners. He had a quality junior year with 115 yards on 22 carries and 200 yards on 11 receptions with four touchdowns. In 2015, he caught eight passes for 130 yards with four touchdowns. Flowers also plays on special teams, and that will be huge for his NFL hopes.

  3. Khalid Hill, FB, Michigan
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 263.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.71.
    Projected Round (2018): 5-7.

    11/4/17: Hill has recorded nine carries for 15 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. He's blocked well for Michigan, plus has three receptions for 30 yards.

    7/17/17: Hill had a nice junior season, contributing 16 receptions for 118 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 39 yards on 25 carries and 10 touchdowns as the Wolverines' goal-line back.



  4. J.D. Moore, FB, LSU
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 235.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.83.
    Projected Round (2018): 7-FA.

    11/4/17: Moore has one carry for one yard and six receptions for 51 yards in 2017. He missed four games this year.

    7/17/17: Moore returned to the field in 2016 and did a nice job as a lead blocker. He also made 10 receptions for 58 yards. Moore was doing an excellent job of paving the way for Leonard Fournette in 2015 before an injury knocked Moore out for the season after six games.
