My guess is a mid-rounder ( 4th or 5th ).
He would be a nice change of pace back though.
I enjoyed watching him play....he is a mid round guy though...and nothing like MJD...MJD has human torsos for legs....Rodgers just small branches.
I like him enough, but doubt we go for a RB if we keep all three of our current backs.
I go to school at OSU and see Quizz around campus on a fairly regular basis and in person his legs (particularly his calves since he is usually wearing baggy shorts) are ripped, not as much mass as MJD but very good definition and strength.
He plays a lot bigger than he looks, he can take a lot of hits and not get hurt. He was definitely a workhorse back here (250+ carries and around 300 overall touches every year). Having seen him play in person for the last 3 years I really hope the 9ers draft him. I dunno if there is a great comparison to someone in the NFL, he is different from most the people that he is normally compared to.
Edit: Quizz is the exact same size as Sproles (5-7, 190) MJD is the same high but has about 15 additional pounds.
