    Late round/free agent backs who could make it big in the NFL. Wes Bunting

    My top five late round/free agent running back prospects…

    5. Vick Ballard: Mississippi State (5-11, 220)
    Possesses some natural running skills and is a strong kid who always falls forward. However, isn't going to break nearly as many tackles in NFL as he did in college and will struggle averaging over 4.0 yards per carry. A reserve only.

    4. Davin Meggett: Maryland (5-9, 215)
    A shorter, thick back with a strong lower half, runs low and has the quickness/acceleration to pick his way through tight areas and explode toward daylight. Lacks a great feel, will slow his feet and not look real natural at times picking his way through traffic. However, when he sees a lane he can be dynamic and get up the field quickly

    3. Brandon Bolden: Mississippi (5-11, 221)
    A tough, productive SEC back who runs hard and can be effective when there are lanes to run through. Isn't going to create on his own in the NFL and isn't dynamic in any area of the game. Looks like a number three back at the next level.
