    Yeah and maybe he never works out but with a seventh round pick I don't mind on rolling the dice on a guy with high level physical skills. He definitely runs angry.

    The only reason he fell to the 7th was those 2 torn ACLs. He is an injury risk, but well worth that risk in the 7th round. If he can stay healthy he will provide us with some great versatility/depth.

    On the field, he looks stiff and upright to me.

    I definitely think he is a downhill guy. He isn't going to make people miss. But in a straight line if he has a hole no one is going to want to tackle him and he is going to knock guys over and run away from defenders once he gets some space.

    WGAS.

    Can he catch a football, pass block, lead block, or survive NFL hits without getting hurt? IOW can I get him on the field and not telegraph my intent to the defense?

    He absolutely can pass block. He isn't a FB so not really sure how much lead block ability matters. And I'm guessing he can survive an NFL hit given his size.

    So can he catch a pass is about all that's left. I'm sure he can catch a ball but like all big backs I'm sure it's not his forte'. He caught 17 balls last year for Alabama though, so it's not like he can't catch a football. So no, he wouldn't telegraph anything.

    True that lead blocking is lowest in importance on that list. Iím just trying to figure out how he can get on the field and not telegraph the playís intent.

    Leave that to Garrett's innate genius.

    You use him to spell Zeke. Don't situationally do shit. Put him out there and run the regular offense. That's what I'd do anyway. The guy is a lot like Derrick Henry.
