5th round grade from me.
Taking out the DLine and OLine, he finished 18th worst in the 3 cone. That's horrible for a RB.
Also finished 19th worst in the 20 yard shuttle.
I look around the league and ask myself who is a successful straight line runner? I don't see many.
Using a late 1st, early second on someone like this is a tough sell.
i agree with a lot of this, although i'd say he's better than a 5th round pick. lateral quickness and agility is an issue, but i don't think it's as bad as some make it out to be, at least not on game film.
another big problem i have with him is he isn't that great after contact. a guy that big who doesn't have quick burst should be able to shed tackles better.
worse case scenario: brandon jacobs
best case scenario: steven jackson (don't see it since s jax had some elite cutbacks for a dude his size)
