  1. Spencer Brown, FB/RB, UAB
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.

    2/10/20: Brown averaged 3.8 yards per carry in 2019 for 566 yards and five touchdowns. He also made three receptions for 16 yards. Brown is a big back who put up impressive production over the previous two years. In 2018, he averaged 4.5 yards per carry for 1,227 yards for 16 touchdowns. He caught eight passes for 20 yards and a touchdown as well. In the 2017 season, he averaged 5.3 yards per carry for 1,329 yards with 10 touchdowns. Brown may not have the speed to stay at running back in the NFL, but he could gain weight and play some fullback.




  2. Tory Carter, FB, LSU
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.

    2/10/20: Carter is a thick fullback with lead blocking and special teams potential. In 2019, he had a couple of receptions for 15 yards. In 2018, he had four catches for 39 yards and a score after grabbing six passes for 61 yards and a score as a freshman.


  3. Houston Heimuli, FB, Stanford
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 249.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.88.
    Projected Round (2021): FA.

    2/10/20: Heimuli is a big lead blocker who caught a touchdown in 2018 and also played on special teams for the Cardinal. His playing time could increase as an upperclassman.




  4. Ben VanSumeren, FB, Michigan
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 244.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.89.
    Projected Round (2021): FA.

    2/10/20: VanSumeran is a big lead blocker who could contribute more as an upperclassman. He comes from a pro-style offense that is one of the few still using a fullback.


  5. Richie Worship, FB, Purdue
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 260.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.82.
    Projected Round (2021): FA.

    2/10/20: Worship played his first game on October 19th, 2019 and had one carry for three yards against Iowa and didn’t play after that. Worship missed 2018 with an injury, so he has to stay healthy in 2020. He contributed for Purdue in 2017 in a variety of ways. He averaged 4.8 yards per carr that seasony for 257 yards and three touchdowns while also making 10 receptions for 73 yards and two scores. He had 133 yards and two touchdowns on the ground – 3.8 average – in 2016 while also catching eight passes for 49 yards.
