Re: 09 Mock Draft
College teams use a spread with unlimited variations of zbs. West Virginia plays one of those variations, see Steve Slaton.
another program that translates well to zone is Oregon who really spread it out creating cut-back lanes for their running backs & downfiled linemen blocking assignments. they have a kid who could be this years sleeper, poor mans version of Steve Slaton named Jeremiah Johnson. similar size 5090 210 a little thicker lower body, can break tackles keeps leg drive to finish plays, has exceptional cut-back intincts, sees the lanes, willing blocker. have no idea where his draft grade winds up but I'd guess rounds 3-5.
