Notes:
After three seasons at Rutgers, including outstanding sophomore and junior campaigns, ice decided to skip his senior year and declare for the draft...In 2006, he rushed for 1,794 yards and 20 touchdowns...Last season, Rice racked up 2,012 yards and 24 touchdowns, proving to be one of the nation's premier workhorse backs...A strong lower body enables Rice to pound the ball at the opposition...At 5-9, Rice runs with a low center of gravity and can get lost behind his blockers...Is not a true burner but certainly has adequate speed...A reliable receiver who secures the ball and can pick up yardage...The biggest concern is a glaring lack of size, as Rice weighed in under 200 pounds...Carried the ball a ton at Rutgers, so teams could be concerned about wear and tear...Is more of a one-cut runner than an elusive back.
