With the NFL Scouting Combine set to get underway next week in Indianapolis, let's start to take a peek at some of the rankings of the draft prospects at each position. Today, let's check out NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock's top five players at the running back position. The notes on each player were provided by NFL.com from their Combine section.

Mayock's Top 5 Running Backs
Name Height Weight College
1. Mark Ingram 5-10
215
Alabama
Note: Ingram projects as an every-down back who can make an impact on the ground and in the passing game. One of the most polished RBs in recent memory.
2. Mikel Leshoure 6-0
227
Illinois
Note: With some improvements on third down, Leshoure has the size, athleticism and competitiveness to develop into an every-down back. Displays very good burst.
3. Daniel Thomas 6-2
228
Kansas State
Note: Thomas the combination of size, strength, burst and vision to become a solid NFL starting running back. Good in short yardage and goal line situations.
4. Ryan Williams 5-10
202
Virginia Tech
Note: Williams produced a dominant redshirt freshman season in 2009 but has struggled with inconsistency and injury this year.
5. Jacquizz Rodgers 5-7
191
Oregon State
Note: His size will affect his stock, but Rodgers is a home-run hitter who hits the hole with a burst and will get the tough yards between the tackles and at the goal line.
