Dimitri Flowers, FB, Oklahoma
Height: 6-2. Weight: 239. Projected 40 Time: 4.88. Projected Round (2018): 4-6. 9/9/17: Flowers had two carries for five yards with a touchdown and an 18-yard reception in the season opener.
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.
Jaylen Samuels, FB, N.C. State
Height: 5-11. Weight: 223. Projected 40 Time: 4.75. Projected Round (2018): 4-6. 9/9/17: Samuels was impressive against South Carolina with 15 receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown. For the NFL, Samuels is a unique prospect. He 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 Samuels 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.
Khalid Hill, FB, Michigan

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.
J.D. Moore, FB, LSU
Height: 6-4. Weight: 235. Projected 40 Time: 4.83. Projected Round (2018): 6-FA. 9/9/17: Moore had one carry for one yard and a reception for five yards in Week 1.
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.

Height: 6-2. Weight: 254. Projected 40 Time: 4.80. Projected Round (2018): 7-FA. 9/9/17: Marx didn't record any stats in the season opener.
