When DeAnthony runs his 4.24 combine forty this whole 4th rd projection will be a pipe dream. He hurt his ankle first play on a return in the most unbelievable monsoon, in Eugene I ever saw. I would be pissed @ his coaches for that move (exposing him to unessecary risk) than anything else.
if i remember correctly johnson tore it up his last year at ecu as the main rb. then the combine just blew people away. he was more of a workhorse than deanthony.
i like the comparison to dexter mccluster but i think hes better. not as good as tavon austin. reminds me of a mini percy harvin coming out florida. super explosive but not a ton of production at oregon, but the talent is there.
