Did any of you get to watch the Senior Bowl today?
Any observations to share?
There is some RB talent coming. Abdullah outta Nebraska is the real deal. He is labeled as a fumbler and is undersized (<200), which will hurt his stock a bit....but the kid is a natural. He is a quick, determined runner with great vision and hands. He finishes runs like a champ. I like him a lot.
David Johnson outta Northern Iowa also impressed me. He has the size (225), power, and elusiveness to make it at the next level. He also catches the ball outta the backfield. We will be hearing from this kid.
Artis-Payne was was okay....steady, but didn't get the "wow factor" vibe from him.
Most surprising was Tyler Varga outta Yale (yes, Yale). He is a RB/FB hybrid that blocks like a bull.....but can run it efficiently, as well. He can smash you in the mouth or make you miss. Scored twice....he reminds me of a young Hillis.
