    Depends on how he measures at the combine. If he's big and fast and fully healthy, I'd say 4th. If he's slower than expected, he'll drop to 5th/6th or possibly undrafted. Remember that there is almost always a RB slide compared to what fans think.

    I think he's projected as a round 3/4 guy. I know if I needed a RB I would get in there for sure...I really liked him. Showed a lot of smarts, heart, toughness, quick jukes, etc...kind of like a leader at the position. I think he'll make a good 3rd down back and worst, and a good RB by committee back likely.

    Not a burner, but just a shifty guy.

    Great agility/lateral quickness and good vision but average speed, probably a third round pick.

    I always liked Gray, but this year that other back they have really impressed me. Michael ? I can't remember, but the times I watched A&M play that kid was amazing, It seemed they were rotating him and Gray and while Gray was in they were much less effective.... I onl'y watched a few games and not every series in those soooooo FWIW and that doesn't mean Gray isn't good, but I don't see Ray Rice in him.

    The decisiveness, quickness and low center of gravity remind me of Rice. I'll admit I haven't watched much of him, but I think their running styles look similar

    Its the power difference, Rice runs with power. I've not seen that with Gray, but I haven't watched a ton of his games....
