Larry Bird was quick, not fast. Quickness is often more important than speed. DD seems to have that intangible ability to make quick decisions in the line of fire. That too is god given and most don't have that ability. That's one of the talents of ES and other great backs. They know where its going to happen before it happens. They see the holes developing and time the hit accordingly. There's no question that DD will be a marked back by the other team. I will agree with others that this will be a defining year for DD. If he has a good to great year, then I think we will all be able to say he was the steal of last year's draft.
