  1. Michael Dyer**, RB, Arkansas State++
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2013): 3-5.

    1/12/13: If these rankings were based solely on football talent, Dyer would be one of the highest-rated backs. He was on his way to being a first-round pick before off-the-field problems derailed his career and caused him to transfer from Auburn to Arkansas State.

    Dyer was suspended by Auburn for unspecified team reasons. He followed Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State where Malzahn became the head coach. Shortly after joining his new program, Dyer was dismissed from the team for violating team rules.

    Dyer sat out the 2012 season. He could enter the 2013 NFL Draft, but would be better off playing another season of college football to resuscitate his draft status. His family is saying that he will return to college football in 2013, but minds can easily change with the allure of playing professionally. If Dyer does go pro, he looks like a third-day pick given the character concerns.

    Dyer ran for 1,093 yards with five touchdowns as freshman in 2010, averaging six yards per carry. That broke Bo Jackson's freshman running record at Auburn. With Cam Newton gone, Dyer carried the load for the Tigers offense in 2011. He ran for 1,242 yards (5.13 average) with 10 touchdowns. Dyer was a First-Team All-SEC selection alongside Alabama running back Trent Richardson.

    One big question mark about Dyer's game is his receiving ability. He only caught three receptions for 16 yards in two seasons at Auburn.
