His big "problem" is that he continues to fight for yardage after the initial hit... often when he is being grabbed around the legs, etc.
That's how he injured his ankle last year.
He had a shoulder injury his freshman year, but he continued to play through it and didn't miss a game and rushed for an NCAA freshman record.
Last year he had a high ankle sprain.
And this year he had what can only be described as a "freak" accident where he broke his collarbone.
I really think he's suffered from bad luck more than poor conditioning. The guy is a physical specimen and is in unbelievable shape. He needs to learn to avoid direct contact more (ala Julius) but once he does that, I think he'll be special.
I've never seen a running back combine speed, power and agility the way he does.
Whatever team gets him is going to be very lucky. My hunch is that it'll be Houston.
