Alfie's Player Ranking 88 out of 100
Projected Round: 3

Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 88th ranked player, Oregon State runningback Jacquizz Rodgers.

Height: 5-7
Weight: 195lbs

PROS: Explosive and productive running back at Oregon State. Can make defenders miss in the open field and rarely fumbles the football. Despite his size can break tackles of defenders and run with some power. Considered by many as a "poor mans" Maurice Jones-Drew. Excellent receiver out of the backfield. Doubles as a kick returner.

CONS: Size will scare some teams off, but with the success of players like Maurice Jones-Drew, Ray Rice, and Darren Sproles more teams will consider him. Doesn’t have great top end speed. Can be impatient and go for the home run rather than what’s given to him.
