we signed him as a undrafted free agent... just watched highlights if him... he is really very good was even starting over doug martin but then he has had major inuries to his knees ( hmm where have i heard that before Gore, Lattimore, Jewel hampton). Anyways he may not be lattimore but he is very talented I just dont see a spot for him on the team. What do you think?
NFL Comparison Cedric Peerman - outside runner with good size, good developmental type player but "he's actually played at least three games in every season since 2007" as he has had additional availability.
I think if he shows enough during camp he definitely has a shot. In terms of pure running ability, his style is more impressive than Hampton or Dixon. If he makes some plays on special teams he has a legit shot. Hell, we had room for Jacobs last year.

That is the problem, space at RB position.
Hunter- back-up, 3rd down
James- back-up, spc. teams, 3rd down
Dixon- spc. teams, back-up
Lattimore - pup list
Last year we carried that plus Jacobs... If they carry the same amount of RBs they would add Hampton or Harper. Dont know if they will do that or not, they may move the spot to carry an extra WR. But Lattimore wont count as part of 53, and Dixon still hasnt really established himself as a great runner but more of a good special teamer.
Not saying its gonna happen, but people are acting like Harper doesnt have a shot at all... but really he just has to be better than Dixon and Hampton to make the roster, not insurmountable.
