    30 yds in 6 secs corresponds to an 8 sec 40yd dash. Not fast. Even if you give him 2 secs for weaving with pads, that is still a 6 sec 40. Not fast. However I do agree- if he is running at me, im diving for the ground and hope he trips over me or falls down from laughing. That is a tremendous amount of inertia to stop.

    You guys can take an interesting story and squeeze every ounce of life in it -- geez.....

    Killjoy Central -- no one is suggesting we sign him -- it's just a cool story --
    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    People say Derrick Henry may not play RB, yet this guy will? Give me a break.

    Really and Duh! I just thought it was pretty incredible that a 350 lb guy was playing RB and moving like he does. I don't foresee him winning Heisman's and being a 1st round draft pick like our last 3 RB's and he may never touch the ball in college.

    Remember when Auburn signed that 300 pound RB. what happened to him, was he one of the many transfers?

    I bet ya a bucket of chicken that we offer him. No he won't be a running back but Saban will love someone that athletic at that size.
    With his quickness he could be a killer Nose tackle. As far as his speed all I know is all those little guys were chasing an not catching him.
    I was impressed at his overall athleticism, and yes I'd like him as a goal line runner, blocker or both.

    Nah, I am as big as he is. Just 35 years older.

    Force equals mass times velocity squared. Better to be fast than big.
