Jewel Hampton was a pretty good RB behind Shonn Greene at Iowa, then promptly tore his acl one season, then tore the other one the next. Transferred to Southern Illinois and had a couple good seasons.
It's weird, but the guy reminds of a young Frank Gore. Coincidentally, they both had the same injury knock of the two ACLs, which I think is what knocked him out of the draft. He is very, very talented. I think if he remained healthy, Hampton could eventually become a starter somewhere, but he'd need a shot.
