I think James would have a lot harder time at the NFL level doing the goal line stuff he did in college. The threat of him bouncing outside left massive holes in the Dline at Oregon that he was able to burst through. I personally just think his outside the tackles ability is what will translate the most to the nfl and is what the niners need the most from him.
Only saw his games against Stanford so will take your word on this! It is definitely a step up in competition. 5'8" and 194 is pretty solid for a RB. Hunter is a bit bigger and Gore is a bit bigger again.
I am hoping James can be used for screens and other plays where is speed and quickness can be a mismatch...don't care for smash mouth football much.
