300 rushes in the NFL equates to 18.75 carries per game.. (20>18.75)
(as someone has mentioned before) His height is comparable to that of Emmit Smith's or Marshall Faulk's. ( He may need to add a little weight but he's only about 15 pounds lighter than Faulk).
For this upcoming year it is no assumption, it is an educated guess, based on whom we have on the roster plus his size and speed, and the abilities he can contribute in certain areas.
As far as what they did in college translating into the NFL ..... I give you Reggie Bust and Mike Vick redux.
