Well that certainly is impressive build, speed and strength so now we’ll see if he can run the ball in the NFL. Lord knows he’ll get plenty of opportunities with us on 1st and 2nd down.It appears we picked up a pretty promising RB at 5.9 and 208, he has 4.49 speed, and did 21 reps in the bench press, Tytus Howard our 1st RD pick did 21 as well. He looks pretty good, what do you guys think?
I liked Higdon predraft and thought he would go in the 5th.It appears we picked up a pretty promising RB at 5.9 and 208, he has 4.49 speed, and did 21 reps in the bench press, Tytus Howard our 1st RD pick did 21 as well. He looks pretty good, what do you guys think?
With his lack of vision, is he a faster version of Blue?He runs way bigger than his size would indicate. His size and speed say 'change of pace back' but his skill set is very much that of an early down power runner. Runs through contact, great balance, has speed in the open field. Biggest issue is his vision. Extremely inconsistent. All of Michigan's RB's would miss giant holes on the regular and Higdon was no exception. Also, has very limited experience in the passing game. UM would bring in the backup RB to catch passes and the 3rd string RB to pass block. Either way, Higdon was rarely on the field in those situations.
His problem is that he's solid across the board, but not great at any one thing. That and he's undersized for what he brings to the table skill-set wise.
He reminds me of a more athletic Kapri Bibbs. His vision isn't bad, just inconsistent. He'll have some impressive runs where he hits a tiny hole and bursts into the second level then the next play he'll miss a huge cutback lane and run right into the arms of a DL.With his lack of vision, is he a faster version of Blue?
