Not a back half of the first guy. Maybe back half of R3. His combine will need to be outstanding.
I personally see him in the 70-140 range of players pending combine results and individual team's tastes. His ball security issues will drop him some.
It's tough to slot him. But given the quality at RB in this draft -- I don't see many teams feeling like they need to over reach for him. The rich alternatives in guys similar to Foreman means teams can feel more comfortable letting the draft come to them in that range.
Foreman is huge. Unfortunately if you want a bigger back (230+), this year you can pick from Perine, Foreman or Conner. So Foreman's size isn't even really unique in this class. And all of those guys are kind of forecast in that late 3rd to mid 5th round range. He's going to have to demonstrate he has burst and agility. Even if he tests outstanding like Derrick Henry did last year at around the same profile -- the relative strength of this draft should push other prospects in front of him.
Before people get too hung up on fumble rates regarding Seattle -- Foreman's fumble rate was one in 74 carries. Which puts him about 20th in terms of ranking of likely draftable RBs in this class (worth noting that Dalvin Cook a likely top 15 overall player is even worse in this regard).
But Seattle drafted two guys last year (Procise and Collins) who were significantly worse than Foreman. So it's not the end all/be all stat. Just one of many factors. And given the competition and relative flattening of the tier 3 RB group -- it'll be probably over analyzed.
