Notes:
Decided to skip his senior season and declare for the draft...As a junior, Mendenhall racked up 1,999 total yards and 19 touchdowns in 13 contests...Considered by many to be the only runner capable of challenging Arkansas' Darren McFadden for the honor of being the top tailback chosen in this draft...A well-built player who can both power through arm tackles and run away from defenders...Never stops moving his legs, something that McFadden can't claim...Did not take a physical pounding in college, an attractive attribute...More of a one-cut runner than a guy who is going to make a great deal of moves in space...May need some time to improve as a blocker and receiver, but he is capable in both areas...Won't make it out of the first round.
