How would you know? Dude is given next to no opportunity. Yet we have passes thrown to Miller, screens to Dixon, and Kyle Williams returning kicks.
The fact of the matter is that LMJ has not been explosive and does not make eye popping plays. He is limited in what he can do and when his butthole tightens every time a defender gets near him he will never develope. He ran through 10ft wide holes at Oregon and was then able to use open field ability to his advantage. He simply has not transitioned into a change of pace back or a decent returner. It happens to a lot of talented college players.
