Smart kid. He's a lot better at track than he is at football.

Good. He has a much brighter future in track than he does in football.

Probably a good move.

Dolphins/Raiders will probably draft him anyway.

He seems a little too small for the NFL......you have "short" guys like Ray Rice in the NFL, but he is built like a small tank and is rock solid.

He could be a good return guy in the NFL.

But I like the idea of him trying for the olympics. A once in a lifetime opportunity and you figure some team will always give a guy with that kind of speed a shot.

Had a good reign as the fastest player in college football. Put him on the field and he could out run anybody. Anybody.

Never could stay healthy for a whole season. Couldn't break a tackle to save his life. Maybe there could have been a spot for him somewhere in the league returning kicks, but he probably would have had an even shorter career as a return guy than Dante Hall.

Dude will kick *** representing us at the Olympics this summer.

I would assume that he does this for a year or two because of the Olympics then come back to football. I assume there's more money to be made playing football than running track.

Probably the right move but not sure he wouldn't have a better chance as a KR than beating Usain Bolt in the 100.

There goes my mock. I had him being drafted by us in the 5th. I think he could have developed into a great ST's teams guy and a decent backup RB.

Now who do we draft to be a backup to Bush??? Slaton is worthless.
