Darren Sproles - Is he a legit NFL starting RB? Where will he be drafted?

What are your thoughts on Darren Sproles? Do you think he's a legit NFL starting RB? Or do you think he's too small? Is he only a 3rd down RB? Is he only a situational RB? Is he only a KR/PR specialist?

Keep in mind other small RBs in the NFL like:


Priest Holmes - Yes, I know Priest is considerably bigger than Sproles.
Dante Hall
Barry Sanders
Warrick Dunn

What other 5'7" 180lb RBs can you think of that were successful in the NFL?

In what round will Sproles get drafted? Who might draft him? Should the Chiefs draft him? Why or why not?

Are there any NFL draft websites that predict when he'll be drafted and who'll draft him? Please post the links if you know of any.

Discuss..............

Enjoy!!

I'd love for the Chiefs to draft Sproles, but I don't know what we'd do with him. He isn't going to replace Dante Hall as KR/PR specialist. He isn't going to be turned into a WR like Dante was. He, in my view, is too small to be a starting RB and take over for Priest when he retires. I guess he could be a backup to Priest, but that would be a waste if he can't become a full time starter. He could be a really good 3rd down RB, but that would be a waste of a roster spot, wouldn't it?

Napoleon was 5'9" 185 - similar size, I agree.

Yeah he could start. Hopefully for him the team he goes to has a decent O-Line. And no, we should not draft him. Not with Brian Shay just sitting around waiting for a call.

You might've needed to do a bit more of that yesterday. Guess I don't have to go to the trouble of putting Sproles in my sig now.

After watching the Chiefs / Bronco's game, I hope the Chief trade Larry Johnson to Tampa Bay for Keenan McCardell. Then, next year, we draft Sproles to eventually replace Holmes.

Don't confuse Sproles with Q. Griffen. QG is a much more powerful back than Sproles, IMO. Not to mention, I'll bet Darren is 2 inches shorter (5'5", maybe 5'6").

3rd down back or Kick returner..........3-4th round....not to the Chiefs.


Troy Davis was a smaller back, rushed for 2000 yards in 2 consecutive seasons, and wasn't an early selection either.
