Wolfe is one of the most electrifying runners in the collegiate game and proof that big things do come in small packages. Built more in the lines of the team manager rather than a featured back, he has rewritten numerous school, Mid-American Conference and NCAA rushing and all-purpose yardage records in his three years on the Northern Illinois gridiron.
[View Full Quote]Wolfe missed 2006 spring drills while recovering from shoulder surgery, but was ready to go by the season opener. He was again named MAC Offensive Player of the Year and earned All-America honors while leading the nation with an average of 158.33 yards rushing and 178.92 all-purpose yards per game. He collected 1,900 yards with 18 touchdowns on 289 chances (6.6 avg.). He ranked third on the team with 26 receptions for 247 yards (9.5 avg.) and one score. Wolfe piled up 2,147 all-purpose yards and scored 116 points.
wolfe is interesting. He is not a Jones-Drew even though they are similar height. Drew is much more compact. Although wasn't Wolfe very solid against top competition? He isn't going to be a every down back but maybe he is the exception to the rule who proves he can play and produce in the NFL when he size says it shouldn't be done.
If he can find a niche on punt and kickoff returns and then work his way into a nickel back role then he could be an interesting second day pick.
Anyone know why the RB at Aurburn has fallen? I know their are injury concerns but I like how he runs. He runs hard and downhill. While he isn't cadillac I expected him to be a early second pick and now see him at the end of the second or third round pick. In a weak RB draft, I didn't expect him to fall so much. If he can stay healthy, some team is going to get a nice little back in the second or third round.
