Cox was always going to be the third option. But yes, it is upsetting that LMJ cant top cox in either of those duties.
Well, LMJ can do other things very well. He's a year to two out from doing what he did at Oregon.
I have my doubts. And Oregon is a long way removed from the NFL. Generally in the NFL a second round RB should not need several years to develop. It is one of the few positions in the NFL where over all RB's should be plug and play.
His receiving ability and ST ability is largely overrated here, because quite frankly he wasnt even used that way in Oregon. If he cant learn to block effectively, and develop the power to not fall at the feet of the first guy that touches him then he will not last long in the NFL. He is not a sproles/bush/hester no matter how much people want him to be. He is an elusive, fast, between the tackles runner.
