    The Colts have signed a Harvard RB, Clifton Dawson. Can you guys give me the rundown on him? Reading his profiles and profootballweekly, he's rated higher than some of the RBs that got drafted and sounds like a decent player. I'd appreciate any info about him.

    What, you expect to be handed a Super Bowl AND scouting reports for your own draft picks?

    Harvard's best athletes play hockey.

    I've seen him play in person about 10 times. He's much faster than the average Ivy league back (which is to say he runs a 4.5 or so) and runs very hard for his size (hes about 205). He isn't very shifty though, basically an undersized north-south runner. Very good in the Ivy league but I doubt he'll amount to much in the NFL.

    Sounds good. He sounds like a Denver Broncos type back, would you agree? Also sounds a little like Dom Rhodes. Do you think he could be a backup in the NFL?

    I'm not sure why the other posters are so testy. Just asking about a local guy. :)

    I was just kidding around. He sounds like practice squad material. Probably is not big enough yet to make an NFL roster.

    I think it has to do with the presumption that any of us pay much attention to Harvard Football.

    Sarcasm I assume since UVM doesn't have a football team.

    I was referring to the Quality Bud from UVM.
