I like what I've seen in Bruce Anderson. In some ways he's a lighter faster version of Jordan Howard.

One cut style zone runner, good vision, can follow blocking, quick feet and quick to the hole on inside runs, nifty enough to slide through small gaps, better elusiveness than Howard and much better speed in the open field, but not as much power. Not much on him as a receiver but his scouting report claims good hands and can adjust to off target throws.

He's about the same height as Howard but obviously anywhere from 10-15 lbs lighter especially in the legs where Howard gets his power. Anderson reminds me a little of another Anderson we drafted long ago and I'd take another Neal Anderson at RB in a heartbeat. Anderson also looks like he could add some muscle bulk and play closer to 220lbs.

Now that Massie has been signed and we have Coward as his understudy I'm thinking Pace will push OT back a bit on his priority list in favor of RBs and DBs as his primary targets and OT and OLB/Edge as secondary targets. Of course how FA goes will also have an impact but the OL and OLB aren't looking all that bad provided Fitts can replace Lynch.

I was just reading that Bryce Love is now projected to last until the 4th or 5th round. I know it's a risk coming off the injury, but at that point in the draft I'd jump all over it.

Being a quasi-Huskers fan through marriage, I've watched a lot of Ozigbo. A LOT. He's a carbon copy of Jordan Howard. Like, it's uncanny.

Nebraska also rand basically the same zone concepts under Frost last year that the Bears did when Gase/Loggains ran the offense, so that's important to remember when looking at his highlights.

I feel like I see more speed/quickness out of Ozigbo than I do/did Howard.

How are his hands?

His short area burst and quickness is almost identical to Howard. I will say he does have a bit more of a second gear in the open field than Howard.

Oh...his hands are terrible.
