If not drafting The Hand of God, it isn't necessary to spend a high pick on a RB. Useful RB's can be found later. These are guys who will likely never make it to the HOF, or possibly even get a lot of touches, but who can do useful things a team needs. They may have a few great games, or a really good season or two, but it's unlikely they're going to be stars. It's my opinion such players when combined with a little other team talent can add up to more than the sum of their parts. Remember Earth, Wind and Fire? Yeah, Jacobs and who else? Most won't remember, many will never have heard of them outside of a few Giants fans, but they helped for part of a decent offense.
Two guys I've already mentioned that I like are Rhamondre Stevenson from Oklahoma who's both big and fast, and has solid skills carrying and catching, and Caleb Huntley from Ball State. Caleb is listed at 5'10", 229, but I'll bet he's shorter. He tough, a darting bowling ball type of runner. Stevenson is likely a 4th or 5th round pick, Huntley 6th to an UDFA. I posted videos of each previously, so will not repeat them here.
Two other guys I've looked at that I like are small school players, and while you can never be sure, I suspect both may be UDFA's. The first is Gerrid (OK) Doaks from Cincinnati who's a good sized 6', 230, decent speed, vision and power. Could be a work horse.
The second is Nate McCrary from mighty Saginaw Valley State, a man-sized 6'2", 225, also with speed, power and vision.
