Did that happen in the bowl game? Only watched once so it’s fuzzy memory. Short yardage, let Derick go thumb somebody, like it.

He’d be a LOAD as a short yardage back.

He had some plays in the bowl game. Told coach “ I can run too, give me a chance to show you” I’m guessing short yard plays? That 85 TD run almost cost him his lunch🤢

Back to his pee wee football days.

Funny thing is he is a National Medal winner at the Jr Olympics in the 4x100 relay with USATF. Last time he ran track was his jr year in HS and was in the regional 4x200 relay. He realized after that race he was too big to run sprint events. What got him noticed by recruiters was his 4.5 40yd dash time.

Not a lot of DL’s run a 4.5 40. Scouts will probably notice that as well. Let’s put it this way, most QB’s run in the 4.7-4.9 range and slow down as they get older.

If he trained like he did for track, I think he can do it again. He had amazing coaches, most ran in college and really had him in great peak performance to run like that.

Running a 4.5 as a Dlineman will give him a chance to play on Sundays

Giena, I could easily see a three TE’s package…I’ll be quiet.

Can he catch? Because I would like to see Twin Moms baby truck a db.

Yeah, I could use another one like Farrow did on the Pitt DB. That was beautiful!
