Yeah, him and every single other RB from Alabama. Give me a break, most people's grandmothers could average about 4 yards a carry running behind an offensive line comprised entirely of future 1st and 2nd rounders.
He's been overrated beyond belief by some people. He struggled to even remain the starter on his own team. He's a mid 2nd-early 3rd rounder at this point. A lesser version of Mark Ingram.
He hasn't struggled to remain starter. Alabama runs a 2 back system and that freshman they have is going to be a high pick in the NFL as well.
I think he's closer to Ingram than Richardson but he seems to have very good vision. There was a time period were Miami produced Gore, McGahee, Portis, E James in a few year period. It's not unheard to have a factory of running backs.
