That's the thing (against Oklahoma), they knew that teams would play a CB & a S on him... so, they lined him up in the backfield, which confused the defense. They did the same thing against Clemson (the season before), and he had four TD runs.
If a team double-teams him, just move him to RB. If they start stacking the box, split him out. He is a nightmare to cover... like a much smaller Marshall Faulk.
Due to his diminutive size, he will go in the 20s... which works out well for him & for the team that drafts him. Why? Those teams are play-off teams, and don't need a starter and/or could use a situational playmaker. Alas, I see him as a PERFECT fit in New England. Argh!!!
