    Not surprised. The NFL looks for a different set of skills than alot of college football fans and even NFL fans do. They want great blockers. Check for Jacobs and Harris. They want guys that can catch out of the backfield. Double check again. They want guys that don't put the ball on the ground. Double check for the third time. They want guys that run hard. Double check for the fourth time. Actually give Jacobs two checks for this one as a bonus. A good description of him is he simply runs angry. The running part is a huge thing for the NFL naturally, but without the others you can't function in an NFL offense. I think Jacobs is going to be a really good NFL player. If you play fantasy he would be worth a middle round pick this year. Especially if he goes to a team with an above average to great QB. That guy on a wheel route out of the backfield is money.

    Hard for anyone to argue with those choices. Josh Jacobs will probably be one of Alabama's most successful backs in the NFL in a long time.

    Jacobs will be a top NFL Running Back.
    I saw more strength, and NO QUIT, out of Jacobs than any other RB.
    He is the 'Energizer Bunny' of Running Backs.
    He keeps on keeping on.

    I really hope Brian breaks loose this season. IMO he's just not had the opportunities and consequently we've not really seen his actual ability.

    If Jacobs ends up on a team that knows how to use him (think Kamara and the Saints), he will be devastating.

    Everybody including us are all talking about Josh and deservedly so but Damien is going to be a very good RB in the NFL for many years also.

    Agreed. Don't think he'll be a flashy RB but he should be a very solid one for a long time.

    Love both Damien and Josh. I've seen lots of interviews with Damien and he has always been a fantastic representative of Bama. Seems to be very fine young man. Excellent running back, too. If Bama wasn't loaded at RB he'd be more widely recognized for how good he is. I haven't heard Josh nearly as much, but he seems to be s fine person, also. Also, has great skills and determination.

    I can't wait to see how both progress in the NFL.

    I wish them both well as they move on to the NFL. Not sure how high in the draft they will go but they both should make solid players for the teams that draft them. Personally, I am looking at late 1st round or 2nd round for Jacobs and Harris going 2nd or 3rd round.
