Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: October 3, 2016
- Freddie Stevenson, FB, Florida State Projected Round 4th Round
- 2016 Season Recap The 6-1 241 lb Freddie Stevenson is an amazing blocker. Stevenson is the top fullback in the 2017 NFL Draft.
- Freddie Stevenson had 2 carries, 8 rushing yards, and 1 rushing touchdown against Ole Miss. Stevenson still looks like the top fullback for the 2017 NFL Draft at this point in 2016. Stevenson had 1 carry and 1 more rushing yard. Stevenson had 9 receptions for 63 receiving yards. He is doing a fantastic job blocking for Dalvin Cook and looks like the only draftable fullback at this point.
- Freddie Stevenson did an awesome job run blocking for Karlos Williams and Dalvin Cook in 2014. He did more of the same in 2015.
- Freddie Stevenson is not a fullback that runs up the middle. He blocks and catches passes as a receiver coming out of the back field. Those are the two areas that Freddie Stevenson specializes in.
- Bobby Wolford, FB, Boston College Projected Round 5th Round
- 2016 Season Recap The 6-2 248 lb Bobby Wolford enters his senior red shirt season is a great pass catcher in the red zone as a running back on screen passes. His overwhelming size and route running makes him a threat to score. I would not rule out the possibility that Wolford converts to tight end with that size.
- Wolford is a great route runner and blocker. Boston College is not getting him the ball though or getting him involved in blocking situations.
- Bobby Wolford enters his fifth season at Boston College. Wolford had 1 receiving touchdown in all four seasons at Boston College despite being redshirted as a true freshman in 2012. In his first season he blocked for Boston College running back Andre Williams who was a Heisman Trophy Finalist that year.
- Bobby Wolford is known for his blocking, one-handed catches, route running, and ability in the red zone. Like Freddie Stevenson he does not run with the football.
- Marcus Allen, FB, Georgia Tech Projected Round 5th Round
- 2016 Season Recap The 6-2 220 lb Marcus Allen is one of the best fullbacks in the NCAA. Allen is arguably the top rushing fullback in the country. You can argue that he's too light though despite this. He will either have to add weight or convert to running back and likely play on special teams in a limited role. Allen only has 2 carries for 5 rushing yards in 2016.
- Marcus Allen is a good blocker. He's also great at running up the middle. Allen had 35 carries, 166 rushing yards, and 2 rushing tuchdowns in 2015 after finally becoming Georgia Tech's starting fullback. Allen could be the #1 fullback in this draft with another strong season.
- Nate Iese, FB, UCLA Projected Round 6th Round
- 2016 Season Recap The 6-3 250 lb Nate Iese is not a bruiser. He's a great blocker that can catch out of the back field. Nate Iese has 9 receptions, 149 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown in 2016. He's had no carries through 4 games this season and looks like a fullback that may end up converting to tight end.
- Nate Iese was a slot receiver in 2013. He caught two receiving touchdowns in 2014 while blocking for Paul Perkins.
- Nate Iese was mainly a blocking fullback in 2015. Iese may be a fullback that can convert to fullback, wide receiver, or tight end in the NFL because he's better at catching the football than running it.
- Quinn Zamora, FB, Northern Colorado Projected Round 7th Round
- 2016 Season Recap The 6-0 235 lb Quinn Zamora is a natural blocker. He can push defenders back despite not weighing 245 lbs. Zamora has a hard nose attitude and may make it at the next level.
- Zamora is violent and ruthless at the point of attack. Coaches in the Big Sky are raving about him and his potential to play in the NFL.
