    Yep, too many injuries to RB's. Along with WR's, they populate the injury reports. However, every team had 6 shots at picking him and passed and if the Cowboys hadn't picked him, he might have gone undrafted.

    The other thing to consider is if they do want to hide him on the PS, do not give him many reps during the preseason.

    But, he may be expendable in order to keep Darius Jackson so he can make the HOF.

    Trade him to Washington for a 2019 pick. Their guy has a sore knee.

    Very underwhelming. I'm being kind.

    You just insist on being abrasive, don't you?

    Both Olewale and Jackson seem to be able to do everything Bo does and are both better at it. I'm not feeling it on Bo after the first PS game. I know it's early, but in the first game he showed very little reason to keep him around.

    Bo was a luxury pick and for all we know a favor to Saban so he didn't go undrafted. 7th rounders that make any noise are few and far between so nothing really at risk here except I would have preferred another D pick and at least a STer.

    But the winner in all of this is the team. Lots of competition at a valuable spot on a run first team. They'll get the best these guys have to give.

    I thought he looked like every RB that comes out of Alabama--slow.

    Put him in when the opponent defense is tired, worn down, and sick of chasing Zeke while dodging Mack trucks like Zack and Tyron. He will look awsome.

    He was one of the most hyped RBs in High School

    The guy is legit and will be an asset

    zeke 6ft 228 and faster than all of them, he is the guy but its nice to have some similarity to back him up when needed.. Bo looked ok its one preseason game with many more to come.it was confusing when the cowboys brought back Williams and Jackson..i guess comps are good but we could have already been set at that postion.. too many takes away practice and preseason snaps for the others IMO

    The thing with him and Smith is that they are both slow.

    I agree man, Rod’s impressive. Really like him as Zeke’s backup.

    Don't worry about fast or slow, worry about if they are effective. Smith isn't blazing but has taken a short catch 74 yards and has shown he can run. Bo had some nice runs too if that continues he could be a good asset to have

    I thought he looked good for his first game, will know more after rest of ps games.
    Thing is elliot will get 95% of all touches in reg season, no matter how good any of the other RB are.

    If you are talking about the Giants reception, there was a little bit of a bad angle taken in pursuit. Trust me, Rod Smith is not running away from many guys in the open field. His speed is acceptable at best.

    I was agreeing he wasn't that fast but he still showed the ability to go long in a meaningful game. Blame whomever, he still did it. And that isn't the only play he makes, he moves the ball with a physical run style and can catch. Don't discount him just cause he ain't the fastest guy.
