    Think he lasts to the early third? Looks like hes got that extra gear and isn't afraid to get physical. Also looks a bit immature at times (see 3:05 in the clip, just run the damn ball, you'll get laid out pulling that stuff in the pros). Would seem to be a homerun threat with some size too him (bet he could add 5-10 at 6'1" 205). Be interesting to see how his combine numbers are. Not sure if he has fumblitis (thats you FLaurence).

    To me he is the ideal back to have part of a rotation. He can pick up the blitz, and is very experienced in the passing game. They say he runs high. butI think that problem is minimized as the hits he takes will be less working as a rotational guy. To get him at 92 would be a steal. 74 he would be solid , before that the team has bigger needs.

    Skinny legs and stiff, upright running style. What's not to like?

    From watching him a bunch in college, holding on to the ball seems to be one of his strengths. I don't remember him fumbling too often, let alone losing a fumble. He could be an option as a 3rd-4th, but I don't think he's going to be drafted until the 5th-6th round because of his upright running style, proneness for injury, and slow 40 time.

    Besides the injury history and the number of hits he's taken over the years? Nothing.

    Reminds me of Joe Mcknight. He also is very injury prone and BB doesn't like that.
