He was never a lead blocker - there's no lead blocker in the spread; in the Mustangs scheme, there's no TE to run block either.
Round 5 is a good place for him, I think.
I only watched him the previous year, and he looked like a good back before the injury.
I haven't watched him since to see whether he has bounced back all the way.
Well, I liked him by what I read because he could play both positions - so a third string/goalline running back and a blocking FB that can actually catch the ball. I didn`t know he never was a lead blocker...
