    He's gettin' better about that, pep... but you're right, if it wasn't for the rep he gave himself, he'd likely be a first round prospect...

    I knew he hadn't lost a fumble since the OU game, I didn't know the reason behind it... you must be a SERIOUS Horns fan, to have access to that kind of info...

    How was he a four-time All-American in track? This is his 3rd year at Texas and track season has not started yet. I also thought he did not run track last spring to concentrate on football.

    He may not have lost a fumble since OU, but he has fumbled. He fumbled in the bowl game. He also had problems with fumbles his freshman and sophomore seasons, so I don't if that injury really had too much to do with it.

    Anyway, he won't be around late in the draft and I don't think Dallas can afford to spend a 1st or 2nd on him since they have other needs and will have other opportunities to get good players.

    Lets not be too hasty on that fumble aspect. It can be coached. Anyone remember Tiki Barber?

    If Charles was on the board in the 3rd rd I would take him. However I think Dallas will look at RB before the 3rd rd.

    :starspin I agree, if we're going to take a RB, take one early. That doesn't mean that I am advocating to sell the farm for any particular RB, but if we do take a RB, do it early. Our running game could certainly use some new blood that would help Barber shoulder less of the load.

    This guy? I'm not sure if he's headed to the draft this year (junior), but after watching the bowl game I was impress with his vision, speed, toughness, and tackle breaking ability.

    According to this, there is no fumble issue. But, even if there were they could be fixed. Tiki is a great example of a back with a fumble problem that was corrected.

    If we could get an explosive back and not have to trade up with our 2 #1 picks, wouldn't you?

    I like other backs better and we have to wait and see who comes out and who stays

    Thank you for this ... I keep looking at the espn page on him wondering where the fumble observation is coming from. I've obviously not seen a lot of him, but recorded stats don't show a fumble issue.
