    So that kid from Memphis is getting way too much hype to be a viable option, maybe even with our second pick.

    Deejay Dallas if a similar type of player, in that he can do everything- he was a former QB, former WR, and he still has room to grow as a RB. He also returns kicks, returns punts. He runs with the kind of balance which makes Kamara so difficult to tackle.

    He's projected to go in the 5th round, and for his potential, that would be a steal.

    Actually Dallas fits the bill of what Vrable was talking about today.....RB with return experience...He also was a captain for the Hurricanes this year and I know that is a quality that Jrob likes......one of those really compact RBs 5'11" 215lbs ...shows he can run it up the middle or bounce it outside...4.6 speed and nice change of direction

    Does he have any highlights against teams not named Boston College and Bethune-Cookman?

    Is the 4.6 speed at 215 supposed to be a positive? It was 4.58, which is 53rd percentile for RBs... and he only had 28 receptions in 3 years at Miami. His athletic measurables AND his statistical production are not good. This dude is far from the next Kamara.

    I watched Miami play like 3 times last year and I can't even recall this guy being anything special.

    Kamara at UT was a stud that looked like a complete physical RB and not some gadget player that has played every single position known to man.

    Is he worth a late round flyer? Sure. But to call him the next Kamara is an insult to Kamara.

    I do not think he is the next Alvin Kamara at all....I was just responding how he fit into the description of what Vrable said we were looking for

    Kamara ran a 4.56 and had little in the way of production as well. If you actually watch him play , it's clear that he's talented .

    Miami was a horrible team with a horrible offensive line and QB. Without him, they were completely shut out against LA Tech. Still, he scored in several different phases of the offense and special teams- as a RB, a receiver, a QB running the wild cat, punt return. He scored 10 TDs on only 129 touches. They clearly should have used him more.

    Right, let's see how many Alabama player highlights come against SEC teams not named Arkansas

    Fair points, but where it breaks down for me is target share. Dallas had a 5% team target share (25th percentile for RBs). Kamara had a 14% target share (91st percentile).

    Also, the crap QB argument can be used for probably 80% of guys coming out.
