FYI, updates are out.
Liner lost his 5*
Bell now a 5*
Henry and Kamara both with huge jumps to #36 and #45 respectively.
Ballsy move to not have Henry a 5-star. His physical gifts are on a different planet.

Now, or not? If you meant not......I agree. I can't take them seriously for a number of reasons, and now I've added not having DH as a 5* to the ever expanding list.
yep. I thought it was interesting they bumped him up just outside of the 5*.
I have to disagree with TOS not having Henry a 5* as well. He simply outplayed Derrick Green in the Army All-American Game, and made a lot of dudes look like they haven't played against his kind of talent. RTR.

What's funny is in one of their articles it said Foster was 1-B and Treadwell was 1-A. 41 spots difference in 1-A and 1-B?
With all due respect BBD, if you suited me up against the tiny mights, I'd have hard time rushing for that many yards. I'm not saying he's the best runner ever. Hell, he's not the best runner in this class. But if he's not a 5* then what do you have to do to be one?
Another thing about RB rankings:
The issue with the RB rankings is that all the sites are bad at it as they place too much emphasis on appearance (ie. size & muscle tone) and camp & combine performance. Another thing is they penalize guys that don't play in after season All-American games (ie. some kids weren't invited and others didn't play due to injury). Take a look at the top 10-15 leading rushers in the NFL in 2012. About 1/2 were 2 or 3 star players. In fact the top 2 Rookie RBs in the NFL, Alfred Morris and Doug Martin, were both 2 star players. I only use the recruiting services to know which prospects to review in order to form my own opinion. Typically, only about 3 of the top 20 RBs each year as rated by the recruiting services during their senior season ever play 1 down in the NFL. That isn't good scouting IMO.
