    He now has 2,448 yards and 29 touchdowns because of his 284 yard 4 TD game against Tulsa.

    And UCF is now quietly 10-3 & conference champs.

    Their only losses are to Texas (who was ranked 6) by 3.

    At USF (who was ranked 5) by *cough* 52.

    at ECU (6-2 conf. record) by 14.

    and he looked amazing against USF for the one drive they actually let him run the ball. completely tearing up the defense with ease. then they went away from him and stuck with their awful QB-rotation, which produced comical turnovers. then it became too ridiculous to keep running him.

    More of a glider. Like former Viking RB Robert Smith.

    I'll buy that. I'll be p$$ed if they take him over the CB or dancing bear o-lineman. They could make a worse pick. I don't know the guy just see the interviews, and stuff...I like him. He reminds me in his attitude a lot like Levi Brown. Good down to earth kid who is not defined only by his tallent. We could do lot worse. It's amazing at his size how strong he is.

    It seems criminal to me that he wasn't even a finalist for the Doak Walker Award.

    He reminds me of Warrick Dunn a bit. Strong legs, breaks arm tackles. Fast enough.

    i go to UCF and i see him around campus all the time... he's not as fast as you guys think, i think he'll clock around a 4.6 at the combine. however, he is a very smart runner, has great patience, and runs tough.

    still, i'm not entirely sold on him at the next level.

    there you go guys a very "nice" College back :specnatz:

    in the NFL he could be a very "nice" system RB & there's nothing to be ashamed or dishonored about that as a matter of fact for a team that needs a good young system back like the Seahawks (similar to what the Colts did with Addai) select him late 1st rd. :cool:

    you might be right, for now I'm sticking w/Top 10 then revisit after the BCS game. maybe Yankee_In_Texas has some views on the subject................

    can't say I was surprised by the outrage on these boards when I mocked him as the #11 selection of the Houston Texans, they just didn't know he was (in that scenero) the bpa :cool:

    I really don't think he is that high a pick. He may go higher if he tests and works out as a 3-4 OLB, but he isn't that high a pick as a DE. He is what we need as a DE, but he isn't worth top 15 as a DE.
