2011 NFL Draft: Fullback Rankings

  1. Stanley Havili, USC
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 230.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.63.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-4.

    5/15/10: A great weapon to have coming out of the backfield, Stanley Havili had 138 rushing yards (6.6 YPC) and 22 receptions for 298 receiving yards (13.6 average) in 2009.
  2. Shaun Chapas, Georgia
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-6.

    5/15/10: A traditional fullback – a very good blocker, but not any sort of ball-carrier.
  3. Charles Clay, Tulsa
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 230.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.67.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-6.

    5/15/10: Not much of a ball-carrier, but Charles Clay notched 39 receptions for 530 yards and 12 total touchdowns in 2009.
  4. Vai Taua, Nevada
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 225.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.62.
    Projected Round (2011): 6-7.

    5/15/10: The WAC’s leading rusher in 2008, Vai Taua compiled 1,521 yards and 15 touchdowns on a 6.4 YPC. He also caught 30 balls. Taua should find a home as a fullback or an H-back in the NFL.
  5. Owen Marecic, FB/ILB, Stanford
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 244.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.

    5/15/10: One of the tougher players in college football, Owen Marecic will actually be playing both offense (fullback) and defense (inside linebacker) in 2010. Some team needs to have him on its NFL roster come 2011.
  6. Robert Hughes, Notre Dame
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 234.
