Alot of bigname college guys on there. Def.no need for a RB to come out early.
The problem with RBs is that there's "no need" for them to stay in college, either. If you're a talented RB and the state of the league (RB committees, passing predominance, etc) suggests your position won't be drafted early, then that's not something that changes if you stay in college for another year. Since RBs have shorter professional careers than other positions, they're better off declaring when they can if their skills are already appropriately developed - even if they end up going late. Lesser college workload = better NFL durability = more money at the NFL level. Willie Parker is the best example of this, even though he was an anomaly at the time.

Of course, getting your degree has its benefits, etc etc etc blah blah blah.

I think it's vital as a running back these days to be a great pass catcher and elite on the screen passes. Otherwise you cannot be an every down back and its adds value to get picked.

Did Vic Hampton ever sign? I did a quick google search and could not find anything.

Not to my knowledge. As mentioned, he's probably waiting on a call when injuries begin. Truly the longest of long shots.

If someone had told me last year that Hampton wouldn't be drafted nor would he sign as a undrafted free agent nor would he be invited to a rookie tryout camp, I would have said they were crazy. He was a multi-year starter in the SEC.

You've seen a few articles on it, but I wonder if we might start to see a trend where elite athletes move away from playing running back.

As has been stated, the career is short even by nfl standards. And from what I've read, teams are just not giving big contracts to running backs in their prime even, when they are free agents.

Just seems like a lose/lose situation. If you play another position you can get a better payday, have a longer career, and will probably end your days in better physical shape than if you played rb.
