Not sure about him college career, but he looked good in Cowboy's camp. Either way, he's an upgrade over Robinson.
Sheets was an upgrade over Robinson when it came to running. I beg to differ about Lattimore when he was in camp with the Cowboys. From what I saw he did just run straight ahead and didn't display the best vision but the one thing that bugged nme about him was that HE WAS AFRAID OF CONTACT. I remember watching a Cowboy game and Lattimore ran out of bounds when the defensive player was approaching and Moose Johnson ripped into him for running out of bounds and not taking the contact on. Lattimore did it again on the next play and Moose ripped him again. I don't like the signing but its just practice squad.Its not like he is gonna backup Gore if he gets reinjured.
Sheets was an upgrade, unfortunately he whiffed on more blocks that Rachal.
As for Keyon, I also remember one of the vets blowing him up during a non-contact drill, and he just popped up and smiled. Everyone gave him props for taking for the hit so well. I find it hard to believe that he's afraid of contact.
