3rd Round RB Wish List

If the Rams do not select, Leshoure in the 2nd round, they will need to fill their back up running back hole with one of these dynamic college runners. Here is our preferences:

Taiwan Jones – Eastern Washington – Jones has the best explosiveness out of these backs and does not lack for top end speed either. He’ll need to add muscle to pass block on 3rd down, but his speed and pass-catching ability more than make up for that.

DeMarco Murray – Oklahoma – Murray still has a lot of burst left, but has added strength to his running arsenal. Would be more than a speed back for the Rams.

Jaquizz Rodgers – Oregon State – Quizz is a “peanut” as described by Rams GM Billy Devaney. He’s tiny, elusive and speedy. Wouldn’t be a future feature back, but would be a great tool for new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to deploy.

Roy Helu, Jr – Nebraska – Helu is a bigger guy and has “football” speed. He doesn’t run as fast as other backs ahead of him in the 40, but will be running away from guys once the pads go on.

Noel Devine – West Virginia – Devine is a poor-man’s version of Taiwan Jones or Jaquizz Rodgers.
