He is from Utah State, has posters of His favorite comic book Hero in His locker. " The Hulk ". Jerry Reese is phenomenal at finding Quality players, at " Bargain Basement Prices ". In the mid rounds, this could be our guy, to replace BJ.

He is an ok prospect, Good guy to split carries and should be productive, I dont think he will do well behind this Oline right now because he doesnt make guys miss and lacks a great burst.. See a serviceable 4 YPC type back not a high ceiling.Think there will be better value compared to draft position

Now I know it was a highlight reel that Jeff Schull showed on bleacher. He did out run some people. And even though the line were opening up huge holes in the video, He did show some good between the tackles running.

Draft scouts on twitter seems to be very high on his backup Michael Smith

He has good size, speed, and strength -- but I just don't think he runs like he does. He relies on his agility too much, which leads to a lot of bounced out runs. I don't see him as a home run hitter, or a between the tackles guy at this point. Can he develop though? Sure he can.

But he isn't Hulk coming in, far from it. Very poor mans Mendenhall, IMO.

Gannaway could be a big back between the tackles

Gannaway could be a big back between the tacklesIncredible size if you're looking for Jacobs' replacement. Very deceptive speed. Better in the open field than most would expect. He is a very nice prospect.

Terrence Ganaway can be a steal for someone. The kid is a load, and I liked his Senior Bowl week.

I'm gonna switch gears here. I was unaware that Turbin was 5-10. however He did run a 4.4 and bench pressed 28 times. Maybe a late RD pick to back up AB in case of injury. Maybe His Hero is the Hulk, but maybe He should have looked at the Atom more.

I don't think he will get drafted.

The first college game I saw on tv last season was Auburn vs. Utah State, I live in Alabama. I noticed the Turbin kid right off the bat. He ran over, through and away from The Auburn defense all day. One of the toughest runners I have seen with great vision. When he ran well at the combine I said we need this dude. Good call!
