He's injured right now, but does anyone know if he is planning on entering the draft after this season? The guy has a second and third gear when he gets loose. If we drafted a running back I would love to pick someone like him because he's different from what we have.

I'm not sure I would want him as a running back. He's very thin.

Yeah I know, but weren't people saying the same thing about Chris Johnson. He's 5-11 and 200 lbs and Jahvid Best is 5-10 and 195 lbs. So that's not too big of difference

I watched Chris Johnson a lot at East Carolina and he was more like C.J. Spiller. He doesn't have great height and weight proportion on paper but when you look at him, he's cut well, keeps his waist low and protects himself as he runs. Best is more high cut with thinner legs and he runs more upright, doesn't protect himself as much.

i prefer cj spiller myself...spiller is gonna do damage in the pros...i think he's gonna be a matchup nightmare for d coordinators in the passing game as well as his big play running potential and special teams return skills...

Spiller's one of the few senior studs on offense. I think there's probably only 3 or 4 senior studs on offense and C.J. is one of them.

Best has been getting concussions like crazy.. i prefer Spiller over him but we dont need a RB this high in the draft
