Do not let any of your preconceived notions about big backs taint your perception of this guy. He's not a Ron Dayne built like Bettis runs like Brenda back. He's a real deal, real talent that happens to be 6-2 and 244 lbs. He's just good. Real good. And he just happens to be real big, which doesn't hurt. When you watch him move you would think that he's a 220 guy with a lot of power. And t he more I watch him, the more I like him. In fact, he may very well have usurped my main man Zac Stacy.
Things to like... well, I really like his patience. He seems to be content to let things develop in front of him. And he has really good vision. He not only sets up his blocks beautifully, but he has a knack for feeling cut backs. He also has uncanny quickness in confined spaces. He's not just quick for a big guy, he's got real deal quickness. The kind of quickness that leaves LBs that have him dead to rights in the hole with nothing but air. And that quickness also allows him to burst through holes when they present themselves, which often leads to arm-tackles. Arm tackles that his size allows him fan away like gnats.
The one word that describes him best: talent. He's THAT guy. That "you'll know him when he gets off the bus" guy. He's everything you want in a back. Patience, vision, quickness, toughness, feel, playmaker... He's got all the tools. He's exactly what you're looking for... except BIGGER.
