Draft watch: C.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson

5-11, 196

Draft projection: First round.

Spiller is the top-rated back entering the draft and looks like he can step right in and be a multi-dimensional threat in the NFL. He rushed for 1,212 yards as a senior and caught 36 passes. He ran the second-fastest time at the NFL Scouting Combine - 4.37 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

On getting tough yards: "That’s pretty much what we did at Clemson. We ran inside, did a lot of zone blocking inside, did a lot of power downhill running. I think by me doing that, hopefully I showed people I can also be an inside runner as well as a good outside runner."
