Key points-
Doug Martin- In fact, he even uttered the words "he might be better than Trent" not only once, but twice

Lamar Miller- He's a bigger Clinton Portis, a bigger Clinton Portis. And faster. Exceptional speed and home-run threat, without a doubt.

Robert Turbin- But too many one-man tackling, getting brought down by one guy
isn't going to get it done. Doesn't always run like a 225-pound power
back, runs like he's 205 or 210. I'm not sure he would have survived in the SEC.

Bernard Peirce- I'm not seeing a whole lot. He's a little bow-legged. He runs too
high, allows his upper body to get ahead of his legs, that's how
injuries happen. I don't see anything special. Holds ball too loose. He's not flashy,
doesn't do much to excite me. He's a "guy." He's not a back who can
consistently help me.

Nothing on David Wilson? I hope we can snag one of the top backs....fixing our run game is a must

I would tend to agree ... Emmit doesn't have a lot going on upstairs but I'd tend to listen to him with regards to running back evaluations.

Not necessarily as gospel, but his opinions in this area do have merit imo.

He is an idiot. Last year he said the best prospect coming out was "Cam Norton."
