Please, just watch this guy. Tremendous feet, runs with power and a low base, good vision, tough, and is a smart runner.

In a weak RB class, this guy will be some noise down the road.

Meh. Not a special talent. Nice college production but average skills.

I completely disagree. Not a long range speed guy but is extremely shifty in open space, runs with a low base and power, and has good RB instincts in terms of picking his holes and setting his blocks.

He's finally regaining his old form from last season, and I think he'll make some noise in the process if he declares. Not saying he's a first rounder by any stretch, just a guy that will be talked about down the line that has some good potential.

Like I said, this guy is quickly regaining his 2012 form. This week against New Mexico:

27 rushes, 233 yards, 3 TDs.

Average skills outside of his vision. He's a decent RBBC addition, not a workhorse per say, but he's someone who will stick for a long period of time as a backup in the league because he can manufacture yards with quality vision even if he doesn't break big chunks (he'll still get productive YPC spelling the starter) - similar in nature to Pierre Thomas or more appropriately Dominic Rhodes.

He does have good vision but I don't think he exploits it well because he doesn't cut particularly decisively. It takes him chopping his steps and slowing his momentum to change direction where as the top guys can be at full speed and just plant and cut without losing too much speed. Muema's got a good, low center of gravity but he doesn't have the looseness in his hips and quick twitch fibers to change the direction of his movement quickly enough to overcome his inertia.

SDSU's best kept secret? Our nightlife. Actually that's no secret Cool

Muema reminds me of Pierre Thomas. Clever back with average tools but good enough of a footballing brain to contribute nicely at the next level.

He looked great today. I has very good feet, vision, burst, and balance. It doesn't seem like he has top end speed, but he looks like a guy who can rip of 20 yard runs with relative ease.

Looks very similar to LaDarius Perkins.
