    I guess you are missing it then. Not everyone has an eye for real talent lol.

    So what exactly am I missing?

    He looks like a guy that if the run is blocked for five he gets five. If it's blocked for two he gets two. If the hole is wide open he gets as much as he can before he gets chased down from behind, which is just about every time he gets in the open field.

    He's caught eight passes at BC in his entire career and zero this season. He doesn't look like a good blocker.

    He has fresh legs from his limited role, can break tackles, fast/agile, great vision hits the hole and go Idk what more you can ask.

    This list didn't have room for him.

    I could have put him in the honorable mention category though.

    Are we watching the same tape of him? The dude is a beast. You don't have a 2000 yard season on over 6 yards a carry in the acc by being mediocre. Not to mention the fact that teams were steadily game planning to stop him, but they never could.

    Let me start by saying, that I want the front office to restructure CJ's contract (incentive-laden) instead of outright cutting him. I feel he is going to go someplace and be used properly and we are going to look foolish for releasing him (financially, I understand the reasoning behind the release that is why they should attempt a restructure).

    With that being said, if we do release him this is the back I want to select in the 3rd - 4th round:



    Pulled from Bruce feldman's "Freaks List: The 20 craziest athletes in college football"
    17. James Wilder, FSU, RB: The Noles had a few other viable candidates to make this list (LB Christian Jones and DT Timmy Jernigan) each warranted consideration, but we'll go with the 233-pound back, who measured in with 4.9 percent body fat. Wilder also runs in the 4.5s, vertical jumps over 36 inches and bench presses 405 pounds.

    Breaking tackles in the big 10 is alot easier than breaking tackles in the nfl.

    I like wilder too. I will add him to the list later.

    I also agree that if we just straight up release cj, it will be a horribly dumb move. Restructure, trade, anything but release a guy like cj.

    Now you're just trolling. Wilder is the third best back on his own team.
