Jonathan Dwyer was the biggest faller of the bunch, but after Montario Hardesty’s selection in the second round every running back took a free fall.
LeGarrette Blount didn’t even get drafted — but he did get signed post-draft by the 49ers.
As expected, C.J. Spiller was the first back off the board and Ryan Matthews was second.
