    Why so low on Ballage?

    Ballage has a unique skillset. I like his size and athleticism, along with being one of the better backs in the country at catching passes out of the backfield.

    However, I don't see how anybody could be exceptionally high on him. What the hell are they basing it on? He doesn't produce consistently.

    He's not even the most productive back in his own backfield. Sun Devils like to do it by committee at RB and Ballage only gets about 10 carries a game on average. Demario Richard is built like a fire hydrant and has that low center of gravity that tends to bode well for RB's. They've used Ballage almost like a specialty player in my opinion.

    I think too much was made out of the 7 rushing TD game he had last year vs. Texas Tech, besides the fact it's a defense that doesn't tackle at all and has no culture on the defensive side of the ball. It's just not important in Lubbock.

    I need to see Ballage be consistent. Go out and produce week in and week out to merit moving up my list....to where he SHOULD be. I've been waiting 3 years to see it. I can't just give it to him in good conscience.

    All fair points, I acknowledge them but still put a late 2 on him. I love his pro physical potential.

    I didn't like Richard at all..

    Justin Crawford is probably the best RB i've seen at WVU since Slaton. He was criminally underused at times last season,.WVU has a pretty talented backfield this season so he might not get as many touches as he should. If they decide to play more of a workhorse role he'll have a top 5 season.
