Thank you very much. The kid is going to be special. I see him being a step above Julio Jones when it's all said and done[both as a prospect and as Tide player].
Yeah, I don't think he's near Julio yet, as a prospect or player.

Slow down partner, just because he has the measurables doesn't mean he is going to be a projected 1st round pick or any player who runs fast and has a good freshman season, its been plenty of guys who were potentially cant miss who missed, ask Deandre Brown

How did Southerrn Miss land a 5*?? And how was he not even drafted with that season and those measureables? He must've been awful afterwards.

He literally snapped his leg in half at one point. Talented, but really poor attitude and didn't look the same later on.

Yep. Had a gnarly broken leg and afterwards, lost his speed and lacked the work ethic to make it.

People are really overrating freshmen in this thread.

NFL Comparison: I've seen many websites compare him to Chris Johnson but I don't see it. He has the speed but he has much better vision, hands, power, and agility.
My Projected Draft Position: Top 20 Pick


The most explosive true freshman running back I've seen in a while. His speed is reminiscent of a young Reggie Bush. Future top 10 pick.


De'Anthony Thomas says you're lying...


He has 920 all-purpose yards in five games.

Well that's made a whole lot easier when you get to rack up a ton of kick return yards (also, putting up 246 yards and 4 TDs against Bethune Cookman helps). And if you want to talk about explosive true freshman, what about Gurley? He is averaging an extra yard per carry and 5 yards per return compared to Johnson.

Manziel may be the best freshman in the nation, but it is certainly at the very least close. You do realize that Todd Gurley is 13th in the nation in rushing yards, 8th in yards per attempt, and third in TDs, right?

Yep. A lot of guys haven't shown a ton to get mention. Yeah, DGB should be great and probably will be, but he hasn't played like it yet (keyword: yet).

Hence why I said "if he can put it together".

It's hard to project what a players draft stock will look like in two or three years taking injuries, coaching changes, and other things into consideration but with that being said I really like Georgia's true freshman running back duo. It's early but Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall both look like guys that are poised to be first round picks in a couple of years.

Cooper's not on Julio's level but he's a more polished receiver than Jones was his freshman year. He'll be a good one but he's not gonna be 6-3 220 lbs anytime soon.

Couldn't help but think of Trinton Sturdivant when you said this. After is freshman year I could have sworn he was a first round lock.

Kyle Carter TE PSU
Brandon Ross RB Maryland

both of which will show up very huge in the near future. KC has already shown up as Penn States second receiving option
