IMO anybody who says otherwise is putting their head in the sand.
A lot of analyst have talked first rd for him and it only takes one team to take him there like a San Diego. But if you actually look at his game it doesn't translate to to the NFL as well as the RB's rated ahead of him. Not to mention he is slow I don't care what his 40 time is he is slow and wont just run everyone over in the NFL. Teams probably compare him to Lendale or a Ron Dayne neither of which are worthy of a first rd pick.
and by the way LMAO! at this thread titile
