    I went to Texas, so I am going to be biased. But what D’Onta accomplished last year when teams knew he was going to get the ball was truly impressive. A lot of those runs up the middle are over once he reaches the second level because they brought the extra man into the box. He is fast for his size, and has good balance. He is a good player who doesn’t have a ton of miles on him coming out of college.

      I remember a quote from Bill Parcells about one of the most important aspects of a RB is the amount of tread still on the tires.

    At his pro day, this cat weighed in at 234 pounds and clocked a pair of 4.45 40-yard dashes…that is nuts!!! This is the back I want in Pewter.

    After reading Trevor’s Cover 3, it’s pretty apparent that a running back like Foreman isn’t exactly the best fit for our OL/Offense. Also always worry about 1 year production type players and that the 2,000 yards came against Big12 defenses. He’s a good player and if we draft him, he’ll contribute. Just not sure he’s the best fit and with the team being playoff ready, it’s about getting guys that fit best right now.

      He would make things more power-centric for sure. Though he runs from a shotgun set, it’s still very much between the tackles. Which certainly gives room for “shot out of a cannon” plays when the O-Line gets the gap right with his burst and momentum. But, it just makes the running game more one dimensional with where they run it – which is only good or bad depending on the offensive line.

      If it were up to me, I’d still be more on board with Hunt, Perine or Jamaal Williams.

        Trevor I also like Hunt he does not have to break off 50-60 yard runs. If he can get 10-15 yards and get those short third downs that keeps the other team on the field in the heat THAT WILL HELP US ALOT.
