Michael Robinson? With the new look offense, the odd man out appears to be Moran Norris.

Joique Bell looks impressive. He looks like he could make a squad.

Moran Norris is a delicate issue since Gore personally brought him in.

Brit Miller can do the same job only better. Miller wouldn't whiff on half of his blocks.

Nice find here.

Some things I like:
1. He keeps his legs churning. He was helped out on some of those runs by poor tackling but he also made misses because he never stopped moving his legs.
2. Incredible balance. Hitting the hole, going down, but keeping on his feet and gaining yards. That's a rare skill.
3. The vision is really good too. Nice cuts and open field vision.
4. Excellent use of hands. You don't see many highlight clips of RBs making good stiff arms. There were three or four in that highlight clip.
5. He can also make the touch catch.
6. Looks like a humble guy too. Loved that he didn't celebrate after any of the TDs. No thumping his chest, pointing at the stands anything like that.

Good prospect for a late round pickup.

My favorite late round prospect for most of the year has been Noel Devine who decided to go back to school his senior year.

Having watched Joique play all 44 of his collegiate games, I wanted to let you know some more about him. He had five different starting quarterbacks in his four seasons with more than half of the games (26-of-44) being started by a true freshman or a redshirt freshman signal caller. Up until the season finale this year, the Wayne State quarterbacks were averaging less than 130 yards passing a game, while Joique was averaging over 180 yards a game rushing. His numbers were down his junior year due to an injury for which he had surgery in November 2008. He can to camp last August in the best shape of his collegiate career. In terms of the you tube play from the game at Indianapolis. It came on a two-point conversion in the second quarter with his team trailing 14-12. That play pretty much describes Joique's desire and determination. On one of his you tube videos is a 45-yard TD reception against Ashland (purple and yellow team). This TD catch came in the final minute and snapped a 40-40 tie. It was his sixth TD of the game (after five rushing scores).

The stats provided by OnTheClock show he had only a few TD's each year, and never 5 in a season, much less 1 game. The stats being miss reported? The TD totals provided raise MAJOR flags when compared to the yards he ran for, if they are indeed factual.

Huh? How is this poor production in scoring?

2009: 2084 rush yards and 29 TDs. 293 receiving yards, 3 TDs.
2008: 1152 rush yards and 12 TDs. 226 receiving yards, 1 TD.
2007: 1427 rush yards and 25 TDs. 230 receiving yards, 3 TDs.
2006: 2065 rush yards and 22 TDs. 169 receiving yards, 1 TD.


By that logic Chris Johnson isn't as productive as he should be. 2006 all purpose yards in 2009 but only 16 TDs. That's 1 TD every 125 yards. In 2009 Bell scored 1 TD every 75 yards.

I guess he saw only the receiving touchdowns
