19. Spencer Ware, Louisiana State, 5-10, 228: He is a big, solid back with vision and instincts. He is at his best inside the tackles, but can bounce it outside. He is a violent runner. Ware also is a decent receiver out of the backfield. He never became "the man" at LSU before leaving with a year of eligibility remaining. He also played baseball in college.

20. Theo Riddick, Notre Dame, 5-10, 201: With ordinary speed and size, Riddick is a marginal NFL prospect. But he has played wide receiver and is an excellent receiving back. He also plays with determination and toughness, and can avoid defenders. He could carve out a role as a nickel running back in the right scheme.

21. Zach Line, Southern Methodist, 6-1, 232: He is more of a running fullback than a halfback. As a runner, he is a straight-line pounder. Line has been very productive. He is thick and powerful, and his runs often end in big collisions. Coaches say they love his toughness. He is not very fast.

22. Kerwynn Williams, Utah State, 5-8, 195: He is a fantastic return man with 4.44 40-yard dash speed. Williams has good burst and lateral movement ability, but doesn't run away from a lot of defenders. He is a little like McCalebb in that he can't be expected to take handoffs up the middle because of his size and lack of power, but he can do some good things on the perimeter. He also is a legitimate receiving weapon. Williams competes hard.

The Bears

With Matt Forte and Michael Bush as running backs 1 and 1A on the Bears' roster, the team is not expected to take a running back in the early rounds. However, if a running back slips with good value in the later rounds, the team could add another to increase depth. As of now, Armando Allen is the only other running back on the roster. A change-of-pace style back who could compete with Allen might be appealing.
