Re: Does Herron have a chance to make the team?
He does have the size, and he most likely can play FB, and that is part of the reason they drafted him, but he has not played FB before. He says it himself, plus there is not a FB in Northwestern's offense. They run the single-back spread with 3 or 4 WR's
?I think this is really just getting back to my natural running style,? said Herron. ?For me it took a long time to learn how to be in the spread offense. This is great being back to this pro-style offense. That?s what I ran in high school. It took about two years to really have an understanding for the spread offense. It?s so much different than the I-formation. I am happy to be back in the pro-style offense.?
