i wish he hadn't lost the weight.

who knows, maybe before the draft at the combine they will make him bulk back up?

He'll stay light for the combine and run and test well and then bulk up for the campus visits unless he runs on campus and not at the combine. The game prospects play is to slim and tirm for whatever they run to be as fast as possible and then bulk back up for wherever they get weighed.

They don't get weighed at the combine?  If this is what this kid is doing he needs to fire his agent.  No team will care what he runs at 225 lbs because no team wants him to play at that weight.  He needs to let the dream of being a HB die and do what's best for his career.

Don't have NFL Network.

My cable company tells me I do, yet I clearly do not.  I can't even get them to send someone out just to prove to them I'm not getting half the channels I'm paying for.

Brighthouse doesn't get NFL Network I don't think.  To my knowledge they haven't come to an agreement yet. 

I do however get Futbol de la diga Mexicana and Top Chef.

I've tried searching, and it seems that there isn't even a gametracker anywhere.

He is looking good but he's lost weight and publicly said he wants to play tailback and not be a receiving/blocking fullback which is exactly what the Bucs offense needs.

His feet are good and he's got some moves, great at catching the ball.

He doesn't look like a great blocker.  He looks ok but not dominate.  I believe he also caught a pass or two out of the backfield and looked good doing it.  The announcers seem to think he doesn't want to be a fullback on the NFL level.

Has the Alabama fullback made it on the field yet?  If so, how does he look?

Yeah that has been getting a lot of media coverage.  He has told people that the weight loss was intentionally to showcase his skills as a tailback and doesn't want to be a FB in the NFL.  **CENSORED** Vermeil said it best "There's to much competition at tailback, every team needs a fullback."

he looks like I'm watching a 3rd down conversion for the bucs, and Allstott running the ball.........just mowing them over



Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.

I'm sorry that you guys can't watch it, but his technique is great. Just like any blocker, you have to be focused on that one person to notice them.

As a receiver and a runner, he's got some moves. As a blocker, he knocked Willis, the LB out of Ol' Miss, on his rear, and he continues to open up lanes for Tony Hunt.
