Well said. I think if you watch Demps he seems willing to stick a hat on somebody. So I don't think he'll be any worse than Woodhead as a blocker and his big play potential should he be able to pick up the playbook is immense. Woodhead came in and was making plays a week after getting here and looked seamless out there. The kid is far from the most physically talented but he has to be one of the smartest players football wise to do that with this offense and at such a young age. The story goes John Lynch came in and learned the defense in an afternoon but he was a 12 year vet.
If Demps has the smarts he could be a star in this offense. If he doesn't he'll join the list of Tate, Price and others who had the athletic ability but not the smarts.
