Tewbow is a running back palying Qb.
I'm going to address your comment about Gaither. If by "numbers" you mean production against some of the elite pass rushers in college at the time, then yes, he had all the numbers. If you mean the elite physical tools for an OT, then yes, he had the numbers as well. He screwed up off the field, and that couldn't be predicted. He had it made and lost it by his own doing, mostly because of stuff between the ears. As a prospect on the field, he was as good of an OT prospect as we've seen in a while.
