Dunbar has potential.give him a legitimate shot.
For one side or the other, sometimes the same play.
I look forward to seeing him get more touches also. Just hold on to the ball and stay healthy.
Potential.......simply means the guy hasn't done it yet. I'd love for him to become a truly dangerous weapon, the times he's flashed he was a hold your breath player--but so far most hold their breath for a fumble, when it should be for a "take it to the house".
He had ONE fumble.
I have a problem with hyping up and getting excited about Dunbar. Only plays I remember from him is the game right before he got hurt and in preseason when he broke off a run. I don't even know if he has potential or if he's hit it. But I do know that i'd like to see more.
Hes good but seems pretty injury prone.
He needs to have his break-out season in 2014. It will be feast or famine after this.
As a Baylor fan I secretly hope we do draft him, however only if he drops to the fourth. (Unless we trade back and pick up a third like we did last year)
I just don't think we can afford to give up a higher pick for a player who only see 15-20 snaps a game. (At least until Murray get's hurt) Although, he is the kind of player who is capable of turning those 15 snaps into 100+ yards a couple times a year. It's funny that you bring up Chris Johnson though because they are similar in that both need to have an offensive line that lets them get to the second level where they do the most damage.
And I really wouldn't be surprised to see the Cowboys take a running back in the draft at some point due to Murray's contract/Injury history and the lack of anything significant shown by Randle last year.
People like Broaddus talk about how Dunbar didn't get touches but he didn't play early because he was hurt. He hurt his ankle late in preseason and that was after he missed out on his rookie year with a hamstring. I don't want to have to count on undersized guys that are always hurt and fumble. I am not saying that he needs to be cut but Dunbar, Randle and expiring Murray shouldn't prevent a RB in the draft.
If the line can start the way it finished.
so, the guy has one fumble in pre-season, and one during the season and he is labeled a fumbler
so, the guy gets injured in his first season and he is injury prone
what????? if he has those issues in 2014, then I can possibly agree with those statements, but give the kid a chance for God's sake! I am hopeful that he gets enough touches to see if he can make a difference...and, one post said 400 yards as if it was a joke...if he has 400 yards, and murray stays on the field and goes for over 1,000, then we have something...I love the quick burst from Dunbar and his potential if he catches a pass in the flat....
For every beautiful woman, you will find a man tired of...
In the fourth/fifth rd there may be some tough decisions on the best player available and I would not hesitate at RB, we have a backup coming off ACL and a rookie last year who barely warranted a news article.
Draft lache seastrunk
Dunbar simply needs to stay healthy to afford us everything we need in a change-of-pace back. I'm hoping he'll get stronger now. If we're left to to rely on both he and Murray to last a full season, it's a bit scary. We sorely need a bellcow RB on this team and I'd like to see us locate one in the mid to later rounds of the draft. You've gotta like DeMarco but I'm not at all confident Randle is the answer for us if Murray goes down. He appears to be pretty good at everything but not at all exceptional at anything, IMHO. Maybe he'll manage a quantum leap in his performance in 2014 but outside of that, I won't bank on him to be anything exciting.
The new OC may use him but I bet he has more receiving yards than rushing yards next season.
He doesn't need to be a star to help Dallas win games.
I remember the days when Julius Jones, Troy Hambrick, MBIII, and Kevin Sweeny had "potential". Potential only takes you so far.
Lance Dunbar. Future star.
