He's probably a fourth rounder who could sneak into the top 100 picks with a solid workout. His medical report will be gigantic on his shoulder, and I tend to be a bit skeptical about the result. Call it a hunch, but this may keep him in that fourth round area.
I am much higher on Mississippi St RB Vick Ballard, who is more of a three down back. I liked his overall performance during Senior Bowl week, and think he is kid of lost in the RB shuffle, but a guy I put a second round grade on. I think some team will have a starter with him.
I feel about the same on Ballard. I'd like to watch a little more before I lock him down as a 2nd round talent, but my impressions of him from what I've seen is that he is VERY similar to Frank Gore. Almost identical really. Runs low, displaying great balance and vision, deceptive speed in the open field, will bounce off of arm tackles, and can power through for extra yardage.
Really, as you say, a kind of "lost in the mix" talent.
