With the Baltimore Ravens looking to add a running back, here are some numbers from ESPN Stats & Information on some of the draft's top prospects at that position:

SECOND ROUND

Carlos Hyde, Ohio State: Averaged 7.3 yards per carry and failed to gain positive yards on just 12 of his 208 carries.

Bishop Sankey, Washington: Carried the ball 616 times in the past two seasons, which trailed only Arizona’s Ka'Deem Carey. Sankey finished strong, gaining at least 175 yards in three of his final six games.

Tre Mason, Auburn: Produced four games with at least 150 rushing yards against a SEC defense, the most since Cam Newton had five in 2010. His seven 100-yard rushing games against an SEC defense are the most for any player in a single season in the last 10 years.
THIRD ROUND

Jeremy Hill, LSU: Averaged 7.9 yards per carry (best among qualifiers) on running plays inside of the tackles with about one in every five attempts going for at least 10 yards.

Andre Williams, Boston College: Gained 963 yards after contact last season, 110 more than any other qualifying player.
Charles Sims, West Virginia: Recorded 133 receptions and 1,349 receiving yards, both of which led FBS running backs over the past three seasons.

FOURTH ROUND

Devonta Freeman, Florida State: Averaged 3.9 yards before first contact per rush and gained more than 67 percent of his rushing yards before contact. Both ranked in the top 10 among qualifying running backs (minimum 100 carries).

FIFTH ROUND

De'Anthony Thomas, Oregon: Averaged 5.4 yards before first contact, which ranked second among running backs with at least 100 rush attempts over the past three seasons.
