1. Le’Veon Bell

2. Lamar Miller

“More than a few people in football think he [Lamar Miller] is set for a huge season. Lead the league in rushing? That would be quite a leap, but it’s not totally unbelievable. Miller always showed great bursts of talent when in Miami, but because the Dolphins gonna Dolphin, they completely underutilized him. The Texans won’t, and I keep hearing from scouts that they think he might have a season for the ages.”

3. David Johnson

“This guy’s [David Johnson] got an unusual knack of being able to pick and slide and do some things laterally. And then his receiving and ball skills are second to none. I mean, probably the best receiving back I’ve seen. A lot of people have compared him to Marshall Faulk, and our coaches had Marshall Faulk in Indy,” Keim said. “I think he’s very similar in some ways athletically and in terms of ball-catching skills to Marshall.”

4. Latavius Murray

5. Robert Griffin III (RSJ’s updated QB rankings)

16. ⬆️?RGIII (Cleveland Browns) – I wrote this before Preseason Week 2: ‘I won’t lie, I’m intrigued by his raw skills, particularly his running ability, in Hue Jackson’s system. If Josh Gordon rebounds, Griffin’s cast is fairly explosive. I wouldn’t be shocked if he exploded.’

Well, after going 6/8 for nearly 100 yards and 2 TDs, plus another 36 on the ground, I think it’s safe to say he could make some waves. I’d love to stash him and see what happens… Wouldn’t be shocked if he’s the late round guy to explode for QB1 numbers by any means.”

6. DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry (10 takeaways from Wk. 1 preseason)

“DeMarco Murray flashed serious bounceback appeal in his limited action against San Diego. He took a sweep 15 yards on his first carry, and in general seemed to be getting upfield well and reading the holes properly, finishing the night with 6 carries, 93 yards, and a TD. Moreover, Murray confirmed reports that he’s the clear lead back, playing firmly ahead of also-impressive Derrick Henry, who didn’t see a snap until Murray’s day was officially over. Consider the 2014 rushing leader squarely on the RB2 radar, with injury concerns now his main value-drainer as opposed to actual ability.”
