    He had a pretty good career at KU, anybody have any good or bad opinions on him. Might be worth a look in the later rounds depending on how the draft works out.

    I'm a KU person and he has no place in the NFL. I wouldn't even pick him up as an UDFA. He's blazing fast. He was clocking in the 4.3's electronically training for the combine. With that said, his legs stop moving on first contact, he's extremely injury prone, he lacks lateral quickness. He's fast if you want him to run 40 yards in a straight line. If you need him to make someone miss, it's not going to happen. He's an awkward catcher of the ball in space.

    Hope that sums it up after I've watched him for 3 years now.

    If you want a KU RB to keep an eye on, Toben Opurum. He knocked defenders out of the game as a true freshman. He's an NFL player unless he regresses.

    Thanks for clearing that up LOL

    I only saw KU like 3-4 times a year so I wasn't quite sure what the knocks on the guy was.

    Appreciate it!

    Isn't 25 inches a really, really bad vert? Wonder what was up with that.

    For that kid's sake I am hoping that is a mistype. I can still a 25 inch vert. Not exact pretty, but that number is that bad.

    That was with a DT hanging on his legs.

    I hope.

    For his sake.
