Haven't seen much being discussed about this kid... apparently his character is off the charts, being described as an alpha male and unquestioned team leader. On NFL Network one of the "analysts" tabbed him as the strongest runner in this draft. I had to cock my head to the side because this dude looks tiny on tape.

Here's his info:

https://www.nfl.com/prospects/trayveon- ... 521a18c706

5'8" 206 lbs... he doesn't jump out on tape when I watch him but I do see a good back overall. He's someone that should go anywhere between rounds 3-5, my guess is in round 4.

Here are some clips to watch: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sCS ... QTVzo/edit

Thoughts?

I've watched some tape on him before, he appears to be a little stiff as an athlete IMO. He doesn't look very fluid and is a sort of a long strider. Has some decent speed but he doesn't do anything on tape that really wows you. Doesn't appear to be that elusive and more of a straight line runner. That's the impression that I got of him. I know the Bears have met with him individually (possibly for a private workout). We'll see. He's definitely not in my top 5 wish list of backs.

I like him. I think he's a good fit, but I don't like him as much as a couple other guys.

Glad to read this, I felt the same about his hips (stiff) and that he didn't look as fluid in his cuts/jump-cuts as I would prefer in our future RB.

Nothing special, right? I like Mike Davis better than this kid so he doesn't move the needle for me.
