when I say a large workhorse back that can pick up reliable yardage and take a beating.. im talking about 5'11' - 6'1" and 230-250lbs
Taking the pounding/knowing how lessen the impact is more important that the pure size...E.smith, Curtis Martin, Priest Holmes are no bigger than DomDavis have careers carrying the ball 20-25 times a game. The last injury, if I am correct was a sprained ankle which has nothing to do with size. Sure Benson has had lots of carries, but he has not missed many snaps for sprains, bruises, etc.

Good news is Harris may be available as late as the 3rd round(probably 2nd)... if we want him.
Kay-Jay Harris will be 26 years old come draft time. That's freaking old for a rookie.
