He is also projected to be drafted no later then the 3rd round putting him in the top 100 players drafted. And one thing he has that is better then what we already have is a 4.41 40 time.

I've said this before about are running backs and their 40 times:

Redman 4.76
Dwyer 4.59
Clay 4.83
Batch 4.50
Spann 4.52

We need speed at the position and apparently the team thinks so because they did a private interview with him at the combine and now have brought him in for an interview. Could be a ruse, but I think they would love to have him or any of the faster backs like Robert Turbin catching screen passes or running out of the shotgun on 3rd downs.
