J.D. Runnels.

Getting little respect coming into the season, Runnells did nothing to endear himself to NFL scouts after a subpar senior campaign. But a great March workout has moved Runnells into the late part of the draft. The 235-pound lead blocker ran his 40 in 4.55 seconds and completed 28 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press, numbers that matched many of the top running backs at the combine.

you have to have a true character guy to play fullback imo.

they work their butts off ... have to smash into a brickwall over and over again... and have to do it with little to no glory or big paycheck.

blue collar is the way to go

I don't ever recall him running the ball in college but as a pure fullback he was the one pounding open lanes for Adrian Peterson. Decent hands too from what I've seen. I wouldn't take him any sooner (no pun intended) than the 7th.
