The NFL Draft will take place May 8 -10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Over the next two weeks, Redskins.com will help you get to know the prospects who could wear burgundy and gold, play running backs according to NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock:

Monday, April 21
Quarterback Capsules

Tuesday, April 22
Running Back Capsules
:

1.) BISHOP SANKEY, Washington

NFL.com Bottom Line:

The Pac-12's leading rusher, Sankey is an instinctive, competitive and shifty, low-to-the-ground hard runner. Can be effective as a complementary zone runner capable of moving the chains and picking up chunk yards... more.

College Rushing Statistics:

38 Games
644 Attempts
3,496 yards
37 touchdowns
5.4 yards per carry

... more

2.) CARLOS HYDE, Ohio State

NFL.com Bottom Line: 

A big, strong, powerful, NFL feature back who carried the Buckeyes' offense as a senior and proved he can be a workhorse. Solid all-around, chunk runner well-built for the physicality of the AFC North... more.

College Rushing Statistics:

41 Games
523 Attempts
3,198 yards
37 touchdowns
6.1 yards per carry

... more

3.) JEREMY HILL, Louisiana State

NFL.com Bottom Line: 

Big, thickly built, athletic slasher with an overinflated sense of his abilities and character red flags, which could cause some teams to shy away. Fits best in a downhill scheme and has potential to be a 20-carry back in the NFL, but must run to his size more consistently and prove his unstable behavior is behind him...more.

College Rushing Statistics:

23 Games
345 Attempts
2,156 yards
28 touchdowns
6.2 yards per carry

... more

4.) TRE MASON, Auburn

NFL.com Bottom Line: 

The SEC Player of the Year, Mason is a compactly built, nifty-footed runner with a balanced skill set to merit 20 touches per game at the next level. Fits in multiple schemes and has the chops to make an impact as a rookie... more

College Rushing Statistics:

38 Games
516 Attempts
2,979 yards
32 touchdowns
5.8 yards per carry

... more

5.) ANDRE WILLIAMS Boston College

NFL.com Bottom Line:

Very strong, stocky, powerful runner with the instincts, contact balance and toughness to carry a heavy workload. Really emerged as a senior, when he led the nation in rushing, and proved worthy of a starting role. Limitations in the receiving game could diminish his value...more.

College Rushing Statistics:

44 Games
704 Attempts
3,739 yards
28 touchdowns
5.3 yards per carry
