Which running back will be picked first in the NFL draft?

The NFL Draft Combine is well underway, with much of the 2022 class testing being tested in all sorts of ways for the 32 pro teams.

One of the main talking points of the combine was the running back position, as that’s a deep class but someone might not get picked until the second round. Here are some hypothetical odds for who will be picked first at NFL Draft Night on Thursday, April 28th.

Hall was projected as the first setback since the trial began, but he dazzled the combine, especially on Friday when he came in on his 40-yard dash with an official time of 4:39 a.m.

The Iowa running back has rushed for 3,000 yards and 41 rushing touchdowns over the past two seasons. Hall’s impressive 40 times only helps his cause. At 6’1″, 200 pounds, he’s a great height for a running back.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr has Hall as his top running back prospect and NFL Mock Draft Database has the RB with an average rank of 51 and appears in the first round in more than 12% of the mocks tracked by the site.

Don’t sleep on Walker, the Heisman Trophy contender for a good chunk of last season. Walker was a one-man show for Michigan State’s offense, collecting 1,725 ​​all-purpose yards from the backfield and scoring 19 touchdowns.

According to the NFL Mock Draft Database, which compiles 289 mock drafts and 27 big boards, Walker is ranked the #61 prospect, slightly behind Hall in terms of the composite ranking and appearing in 6% of mock drafts.

Walker also excelled at the combine with a time of 4.38 40, putting him in elite company among his peers.

While Hall could be the early leader to be taken back first, don’t be surprised if Walker’s great season and impressive combination draws a team’s attention to give him a chance in the second round.
