The Top 5 Running Backs in the 2019 NFL Draft

Top Running Backs in the Draft!

1) Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama
Height: 5-10 Weight: 220

Jacobs is a very physically gifted running back as he has good size and is fast, with great forward lean. He has athleticism, agility, running instincts, balance, power, and quick feet. Basically, Jacobs is the complete package and may go in the first round of this year’s draft. His career at Alabama saw him as a rotational back and he didn’t get a ton of carries. The concern here is can he absorb the wear and tear as the number one ball carrier, but it also means he comes into the league with not a lot of wear and tear.

2) Mike Weber, RB, Ohio State
Height: 5-9 Weight: 211

Weber could be one of the steals of this draft. At the combine, he ran fast in the 40, ran well in the bag drills, and showed skill as a receiver. Weber looks like he can be an every-down runner in the NFL.

3) Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State
Height: 5-10

Sanders showed athleticism and quick feet with cutting ability to go with his fast 40 time at the combine. After serving as the backup to Saquon Barkley early in his career and not getting many carries, Sanders averaged 5.8 yards per carry as a senior for 1,274 yards with nine touchdowns. After his strong combine performance, Sanders could end up being a second-day pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

4) Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
Height: 5-10

The senior averaged 5.8 yards per carry in 2018 for 876 yards and nine touchdowns. He also had 22 receptions for 204 yards. Of course, he didn’t see a lot of field time because the Tide was usual rolling over opponents. Harris has elite vision, good contact balance, and strength.

5) Justice Hill, RB, Oklahoma State
Height: 5-9

Hill’s first-step quickness and his burst to get to the second level of the defense. On top of his speed, Hill has good feet with cutting ability to zigzag through the defense. He plays with good knee bend and runs behind his pads, which helps him finish runs well by falling forward.
