    There's a lot more to playing RB than a player's size and speed. RB is probably the most intuitive position on the field. You either have a feel for finding holes and slipping tackles, or you don't. The last RB project we had was Tony Hollings. Didn't work out so well.

    Now, putting him at WR could be an option. :yahoo:

    WR could definitely be an option for him (I suspect whatever team drafts him will put him out wide quite frequently), but I don't see him playing RB.

    His options are unlimited when it comes to lining him up. TE, Slot, using him on a WR screen....it's only a matter if his skills transcend to the NFL level, which, IMO, shouldn't be a problem.
