    DAVID MONTGOMERY
    RB, IOWA STATE CYCLONES

    ESPN's Matt Bowen ranks Iowa State RB David Montgomery second among "complete" backs in the 2019 NFL Draft class.
    The only tailback ahead, in Bowen's mind, is Alabama's Joshua Jacobs. As Bowen notes, Montgomery has been a high-volume player over the last two years for the Cyclones, and he's shown his "wiggle" as both a runner and pass-catcher. He also notes that he looks natural in pass protection, which is obviously big for teams that want Montgomery to play on third down, and looks "natural" catching the ball on film. "Flip that forward to the NFL screen game, the underneath routes and the quick arrow/option routes," Bowen writes. "That will allow him to win within the route vs. linebackers and use his movement skills after the catch."

    Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson measured in at 6-foot and 3/8 inch and 224-pounds on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

    Anderson was listed at 6-foot-1, 220-pounds when he was at Oklahoma. It's not surprising he's one of the bigger backs in this class, as he is a player that's known as a between-the-tackle runner that excels at finding creases. The question, of course, is how healthy he is, as he has a lengthy history of injuries and missed the majority of the 2018 season with a knee injury. If he tests well -- and teams feel like Anderson's injury isn't long-term -- he could be a Day 2 selection.

    Alabama RB Joshua Jacobs measured in at 5-foot-10, 220-pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday.

    Jacobs was listed at 5-foot-10, 216-pounds at Alabama, so this is what we were expecting from the Crimson Tide tailback; or close, anyway. He's going to be limited at the events because of a groin injury, but nothing that happened at the height/weight portion is going to keep him from being considered at the top of the tailback board.

    FAU RB Devin Singletary measured in at 5-foot-7 and 1/2 inch and 203-pounds on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday.

    We round up, so Singletary gets the 5-foot-8 listing, but this is an inch shorter than he was listed at FAU -- at least -- and a couple pounds heavier. It shouldn't matter much, but it's certainly not atypical size that you look for in a three-down tailback, although he certainly "looks" like he can handle hits; we don't know because he just did't get hit very often. The tape and (hopefully) the testing should answer for Motor.

    Memphis RB Darrell Henderson measured in at 5-foot-8 and 208-pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday.

    An inch shorter than we believed, but everything else is right around what was expected. Henderson was a monster at Memphis, but concerns about durability have many analysts wondering if he's a starter or complementary back. How he tests will go a long way towards formulating those opinions.

    DAVID MONTGOMERY
    RB, IOWA STATE CYCLONES

    Iowa State RB David Montgomery measured in at 5-foot-10 and 1/8-inch and 224-pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday.
    That's up eight pounds on his listed 216-pounds at Iowa State. Montgomery is viewed as one of the most "complete" backs in this class, and having a little extra cushion to handle hits from linebackers and the like is certainly not a bad thing. The biggest question with Montgomery is going to be how he tests, as the 40-yard dash and quickness drills are going to be vital for his draft stock.

    I think it shows how this draft has so many guys in that could be good range and none in that generational talent range

    Stanford RB Bryce Love is optimistic (ACL) he will be ready for Week 1.

    Cruelly, Love suffered a torn ACL in his college finale on Dec. 1. He underwent surgery 17 days later. The 2017 Heisman Trophy runner-up, Love eschewed the pros and had a baffling/injured senior campaign where his yards per carry dipped from 8.1 (seriously) to 4.5. Then the injury happened. Being ready for the opener would not be a crazy timeline, but whomever drafts Love is not going to force the issue. At least as of now, Love is looking like a Day 3 prospect.

    The only things that I can think that would benefit from a strong bench press are:
    1) Stiff arm when trying to escape from a tackler.
    2) Blocking during pass protection assignments.

    If an RB can't pass protect, he won't be a 3-down bellcow.

    This is gold, thank you! Was looking for something like this. You’d think the NFL’s draft site could at least be this accurate and easy to use.....

    40 times gonna start trickling in... Not a good time for the henderson... I will say he looks faster than his time


    DARRELL HENDERSON
    RB, MEMPHIS TIGERS

    Memphis RB Darrell Henderson ran the 40-yard dash in an unofficial 4.53 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.
    Henderson (5'8/208) was the king of the breakaway run during his time at Memphis -- he averaged 8.9 YPC each of the past two seasons -- but his run at the combine failed to move the needle much. We were hoping to see a little bit of a faster sprint, in all honesty. The Tigers back is more than just a speed merchant (he is deceptively physical), but that's supposed to be his special sauce. Even without his lighting the track on fire on Friday, Henderson remains likely to come off the board at some point on Day 2.
