Recommended Posts

Michigan loses Cesar Ruiz while Alabama gets Leatherwood back and OSU probably gets Myers and Davis.

Yay

^I don't know how you can't root for that guy. Top 10 college RB of all time.

He's got a case for top 5 too but it's such a deep position in history so who knows.

Never even got a Heisman invite to New York lol

The fact that he went to Wisconsin will be used against him when people look at his production, but it shouldn't be. He played with some of the worst OL I can remember as a fan, and put up historic gross numbers in an era of 3rd down specialists and load management. He made more 7 yard, 10 yard, or TD type runs out of nothing than any RB I can remember.

I'll miss him, but it's for the best that he's leaving. Get paid JT.

His vision wowed you. His 7 or 10 yard runs made out of nothing are what I'll miss the most.

It was a running gag we had in the Badger thread. He'd get us a first down 10 guys on the field in no way deserved, and we'd all comment "well that's the first time today he's been superhuman".

He wasn't patient for the sake of being patient like Le'Veon Bell. If the hole was there right away he'd go, but often he'd wait because he had this crazy awareness for not only where the blocks were going, but how to position himself to bury linebackers in the scrum without needing a 1-1 blocker.

His ONLY knock is the fumbling. He's by far a better RB than Melvin Gordon was and he's probably gonna end up going in the 2nd round. Though, I could see Miami using one of their 3 1st on him.

Sources aren’t able to say one way or the other if he will be able to afford to fly his girlfriend to the draft in April.

Don’t worry I’m sure that Dan Snyder will bring her back on the yacht

True. The other issue is how to "grade" players that waited behind others so only had a year or two. So numbers, at least total numbers, can only tell so much as well.

Absolutely true. He was a special back and I'll miss having that reliability that he provided no matter how many were in the box.

If he goes in the 2nd it's only because of the insane top of the class. Any other year he's easy first

what about James Cook

I see a timeshare to start, as we always do at that position (and others.)  Ultimately, I think it comes out that White gets the lionshare of early downs, and Cook is a change of pace back who also gets plenty of time out of the backfield.
