    I don't know if that run was indicative of his speed since he stumbled at one point and don't know if he really recovered from that. Plus like others said, the speed is different at that level.

    he is bigger and all pros in secondary are the fastest from college level. Fast guy in college is just average in pro, same as HS to college is same. Every time you go up a level you face only the best fromthe lower level. The field tightens and shrinks so the entire pro defense is all american college players. Just as A guy may run for 400 yards a game in HS and not do 100 in college.In hs he may have 1 or maybe 2 defenders in any game that actually makes it to college ball. So 9-10 are not that good LOL. For all the great defenses in college most teams have 1 player of NFL level talent( besides bama and lsu). So to run all over say Ole Miss defense may be great in college, but how many of those 11 make it to NFL? In the NFL you face 11 college all americans every sunday.

    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    Drake was my flex player last night. Double loved it!
