Yep, and this is the perspective I was looking for during a time when us fans can become too enamored with combine performances.

There's track fast, then there's football fast.
There's spandex athletes, then there's football pads athletes.
There's run/jump/spin skills, then there's football skills.

We've seen Arian juke past NFL players with the same ease that Gale Sayers did, but he was overlooked by most because he didn't look pretty in the dog & pony show workouts. It's about football. It's about what's on tape.

Actually quite different. Those guys came out of a "system offense" and were highly touted. Case had a "less than 'good' Combine" coming from a "system offense" and people weren't sold on him to begin with.

My post was made in the irony of drafts past.

My point is that Keenum could carve himself a nice little career (whether a very good back-up OR better).

I'll just keep on believing the Texans will get the job done, and we'll see our FAV RB back here next year!!
Don't worry, Wikipedia has you beat :
