Agree totally. Some bad habits and could work on things. Not like he couldn't improve and get higher up that much in the eyes of the pros. More like he could use it and go from not making to making a team.However, does he really think he can make an NFL team at this point in time? Scout team? Just seemed like maybe he could have used another year. Best of luck to him.
He missed a lot of green to on his cuts. I'm not sold on his vision. Not upper level speed either, got chased down too many times. He has a shot at the next level with the right team and if he stays healthy.Unlike most, I'm kind of surprised by this. I wish him the best, but this season it just seemed like he was always looking for a hole big enough for a Mack truck instead of putting his head down and taking what he could get. I know our OL wasn't great this year, but I recall seeing a lot of plays where he could have gotten two or three yards at minimum, but wound up getting tackled for a two or three yard loss because he hesitated.
Yes. You weigh the option of enhancing your stock against another year of free hits and this was the conclusion he came to.Yeah it's not terribly surprising. It is an interesting decision though. Coming back I don't think would have enhanced his stock and that's ultimately why he went. He is who he is his skill set is what it is. He's not going to gain 20 lbs or get noticeably faster. All he'd do is take hits and put miles on his legs and risk injury by coming back.
I'd be surprised if he gets drafted though. I haven't looked at all the other backs he'll be competing with but is he a top 10 guy? Top 20? And how many get taken?
I suspect he'll have a similar road to what Sargent has had so far. Hope he's cool with that.
Did he get taken out after some good runs or did he take himself out for a breather.?I'm not surprised given the frustration of playing behind that OLine, given that he was so often pulled out after a nice run, his caries were limited and other stuff i've heard rumblings about.
I never felt like he hit his ceiling.
