    I know we didn’t really see a lot, but what are your thoughts on his first game?

    Had a decent long run. He isn’t a burner but a big boy. Nice second effort on his TD run.

    Will really see more in these next games.

    I want him to work over the defense. HIs running style might not last long, but it can be utilized for our purposes.

    This offseason many fans claimed he was the draft steal of the decade.

    I was skeptical based on watching his collwge game footage.

    I'm still not ready to proclaim his as great, but he looked good. He is faster and a better pass catcher than expected. Oddly his inside running is what I question. He needs a clean run to/past the OL. I think he will struggle when defenders penetrate into the backfield similar to how McFadden had issues in that area.

    His biggest issue is that D.Jackson looked decent also and he is big and fast.

    That is my take. He has average to slightly above average NFL RB talent. Maybe some upside but that’s why he was a 7th round pick. He’s a career backup.

    I wasn’t as impressed as I expected to be. I wasn’t disappointed either though but I’m not sure now if he is better than Jackson who I thought looked pretty good as well. That will be a competition to watch.

    I hyped up Bo Scarbrough, but I as you realized he is limited in the backfield. If he doesn't have a hole and gets pressured to run laterally, he can be limited or stopped.

    Darius Jackson impressed me more against the 49ers.

    Faster than expected? He was known for his straight line speed in college and ran a 4.52 at almost 230 lbs. You watched his college game footage and didn't notice his speed? Dude hang up the amateur scouting act. It's getting embarrassing.

    I third that impression. I am more impressed every time I see Rod carry the rock.

    some good, some bad. but with Jackson, Williams in the mix, the cowboys will have to keep 4 rb's for him to have a chance. i'd say he's 50/50 to make the team at this point.

    IDK but I'm glad we have #1 and #2 pretty much set so we can get a good look at these guys.
    Yu can use both and tell Seattle to take their pick as part of a trade.

    little known fact
    Rod Smith is 6'3" 235lbs
    hes bigger and more importantly runs lower than Bo Scarbrough
    when people want a power back to run over defenses late? Rod is a big dude
    Olawale is 6'1" 240lbs as well

    Wasn’t Bo running behind the 2nd and 3rd stringer O line?

    I think he did well for what was given to him. He didn’t have much room to run on the inside and was touched before he got back to the LOS.

    We’ll get a better idea the next couple of weeks.

    Should have drafted a S or DT instead of Bo
    Same goes for Cedric Wilson, Mike White and Dalton Schultz.

    Pick any 2 of the 4 and we were better off taking both a S and a DT in their place.
