Mid-Round Running Backs

A lot of people have been saying we shouldn't use our first round pick on a running back; running back is a mid-round position.  So, with that in mind, who's impressing you among the mid-round running backs?

The guy who has jumped out at me is Kendall Hunter, from Oklahoma State.  If we're looking to add speed in the backfield, this kid looks like he's got it.  He looked very fluid running that 5-cone cutback drill* (I forget what they called it), and, from what the googles say, he seems like he's got his head screwed on straight.

Other guys who've looked good to me are Helu and Murray.  No flash, really, but solid.

(*  Speaking of that drill, I've never been a fan of Marshall Faulk as an analyst, but his criticism of this drill was vacuous even for him: "It just isn't something you ever do on a football field."  Brilliant.  You know what else you never do on a football field?  Jump up and whack sticks with your hand.  Lay down on your back and lift stuff into the air over and over.  Stand stock still and leap forward on both feet as far as you can.  And any number of other combine activities.  Should they not do those, either, Marshall?)
