EARLY FULLBACK RANKINGS
Draft ratings are never a perfect science, even for NFL teams that dedicate departments and year-round scouts to the important job of grading college players and trying to decide how their skills will transfer to the NFL. Here are Viking Update writer and draft fan Kevin Brown's early ratings for the 2003 class.
Under the height column, the first digit represents feet, the next two digits represent inches and the last digit represents how many eighths of an inch (so 6034 equals 6 feet, 3 and 4/8 inches).
