7/24/21: Spiller ran hard for the Aggies as as an underclassman. In 2020, Spiller averaged 5.6 yards per carry for 1,036 yards with nine touchdowns. He also had 16 catches for 174 yards. Spiller averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2019 for 946 yards with 10 touchdowns. That season, he caught 29 passes for 203 yards. The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Spiller is put together well with a nice combination of size and quickness.

Height: 5-11. Weight: 200.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.

View Ranking History

7/24/21: There is a buzz about Gibbs and his NFL potential. He flashed some real ability in 2020 while averaging 5.2 yards per carry for 460 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. What he did as a receiver was very impressive as well, with 24 receptions for 303 yards and three touchdowns. Gibbs and quarterback Jeff Sims could be breakout stars for the Yellow Jackets in 2021 and/or 2022.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Clyde Edwards-Helaire, LSU
3. Georgia image Kendall Milton*, RB, Georgia
Height: 6-1. Weight: 220.

Projected Round (2023): 1-3.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Milton flashed serious ability in 2020, averaging 5.5 yards per carry for 193 yards. In 2021, Milton will probably rotate heavily with Zamir White and James Cook, but by the 2023 NFL Draft, it would not be a surprise if Milton had established himself as an early-round prospect. He is big, quick and full of potential.
