Jeff Demps, RB, Florida

Demps used his incredible speed to be a consistent four-year performer for the Florida Gators. The running back contributed right away as a freshman in 2008, rushing 78 times for 605 yards and seven touchdowns. He never averaged fewer than 5.8 yards per carry in any season, he rushed for no less than 551 yards in each of his four seasons, and he scored a total of 23 rushing touchdowns. Demps also caught passes out of the backfield and returned kickoffs. As a senior in 2011 he returned 10 kicks for 250 yards and scored once on a 99-yarder. He made 57 receptions during his four-year career, including 16 for 172 yards in 2011.

Demps is arguably the fastest player in college football and he may very well set the world on fire at the NFL combine. He consistently runs in the 4.2s of the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.18 from that distance. A track runner in the spring, Demps is the only Florida athlete to win a national championship in two different sports. He stands at just 5'7'' and 191 pounds, so it's clear he is never going to be an every-down back at the next level. Still, his speed is off the charts and he could be a big force on offense and special teams whenever he enters the game. Quite simply, he has game-chancing potential. Look for him to go off the board in the fifth round of April's draft.
