I was going over Walter's Mock draft and saw this guy slotted to us in the 4th. I had no idea who he was so I looked up tape, just to discover a possible mid round gem for us. Now I'd like this pick better had we not chosen Theo Riddick last year, but no one has seen enough from Riddick yet, and RBs get injured all the time so having a crowded RB group is not necessarily bad. To me he looks like a 2nd, early 3rd round prospect. This year it looks like he is going to be an excellent value in the 4th.
He runs low and can stop&go very well. I haven't seen enough tape on him to say anything definitive, but he is an exciting prospect to my eyes...has a L Tomlinson feel to him a little. Dare I say a little bit of Barry? At any rate, a good runner who stays low and isn't afraid to go east-west vs taking the short gain. Patient runner who sets up his lanes well, decent toughness considering his size, knows how to make people miss (change of direction skills), better at tracking the ball on pass plays than one would think.
What do you guys think?
P.S. Can't wait for the draft!! 5 days!
