Apparently he ran the 40 in 4.37, so he’s kind of fast.

Pretty sure they can find anybody to come in and lose yards on a rush attempt.

Don't really get this one, especially with how many guys they have now.

Agree he's here to replace Mizzell.

Was Devin Singletary's backup at FAU. Returns kicks and has blazing speed.

Pace must've seen something while scouting Singletary. The return game needs help.

Probably a returner and maybe a 2-3 touch per game guy.

If you watch his highlights, he's fucking fast... poor man's Tarik Cohen IMO.

I like this pick a lot. I think he can stick as the 4th RB on the roster and contribute on ST.

I like the pick...he's just in a tough spot thanks to the presence of Patterson.

I agree. He and Davis replace Mizzell and Cunningham. Patterson replaces Bellemy, who while thought of a special teams guy ended up getting a surprising number of offensive snaps last year.

I think he handles some kicks, and is essentially taking some of the MIzzel snaps while being a back-up to both Patterson and Cohen. Overall I like this pick.

I would love to see White and Cohen on the field at the same time coming out of the backfield. There are so many ways to use their speed.

Ive got a lot of anger to ration out over the next 4-5 months, and I'm sure as hell not going to dump it out recklessly here in freakin' August.
