Niggah is a BEAST.

Think he'll be all pro.

Only thing that worries me is that he was on his phone on sidelines during combine.

One of "those" niggahs.

Gotta be 100% focused.

He's so stiff. No lateral agility. Offers nothing as a receiver.

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.

He runs really high, and he is big as hell too. Whoever gets this dude needs to get him to drop his pad level and keep the ball tight in high leverage situations.

He is a bruiser, I don't know if he will be a true #1, 3 down back, but he can carry a large workload. I think working him in tandem with a speedy, shifty guy will be the best way to plug and play him and get the best results.

He also doesn't really have lateral quickness. He ain't gonna bang NFL linebackers all game like he did in the SEC.

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)
