I know, seriously.
He was, hands down, the best RB in the nation when healthy. And the consensus says he would have been top 5 without the latest injury.
Does he have a huge challenge in front of him? Sure.
But this dude was tearing up the SEC (when it was dominant) on a regular basis.
He isn't a Darren Sproles or LaMichael James. He isn't a lateral runner. He is a 225 lbs. f**king bulldozer. Get to know him.
So that's what I'm asking. What is his running style? Just because you have a lot of yards doesn't mean you are a great runner. It could be more of the system than the back. You said he is a bulldozer, but I didn't see any highlights of him "bulldozing" defenders. Heck if you watch Dixon's highlights you would think he was the next Jim Brown off that one TD run in college.
I don't know enough to argue it, that's why I'm asking for input.
Edit: Not to bring up Glenn Coffee again, but didn't he have a ton of yards in the SEC? Obviously he wasn't as highly thought of, but he did have a lot of yards.
