His nagging injuries are my worry if we're talking second round - he always seemed to have something bothering him. He wasn't all that quick for most of the season, his feet looked heavy; I just don't know if that's his foot bothering him/the wear of the season/inconsistency. He was fine after 4-5 weeks off for the ND game.
Lacy isn't the RB from Alabama I want.
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
for the love of god get a real freaking mike already!!!
that kids got special talents though...
as for lacy i'm hearing a lot of people ripping him a new one for his work ethic...that may just be so he falls to someone given when i'm hearing it but it may also be after his workout in which i heard he was very out of shape it's another red flag for teams...
i also heard his time was closer to 4.6 flat than 4.4's...
Franklin of UCLA is going to be a star. Best back in the draft.
I like his tools, but have some reservations. I like how he improved catching and blocking, and I like his north-south decisiveness when he sees a lane. What I like a lot is his forward momentum; not necessarily a downhill runner, but just a sense that he always has motion upfield, hard to describe but pretty attractive for a RB. I just don't think he has enough wiggle or lateral quickness for being 205. His straight-ahead running is nice, but it makes it easier for defenses to get big hits on him because he just isn't that elusive or much or a make-you-miss quickness guy. I see him take some pretty big shots in clips, and he looks pretty filled out to me, not sure he can add 10lbs (I believe he added weight between junior-senior year). I also see him running off-tackle alot, which seems to be a theme with some of these backs; it doesn't worry me as much as it does with Ellington because Franklin has shown decisiveness hitting a hole, but I just wish we saw more inside running in UCLA's read-option/pistol.
