Default Jovorski Lane

Anybody seen this kid they refer to as the "J-Train"? Depending on who's reporting he goes 6' - 6'1" and 278 - 295 lbs. Very punishing runner. Perfect for us for that "close in work".





Remind you of anyone? Like our recently retired 315 lb halfback? Especially when he got up 20 seconds into the video. Deja vu all over again



Dass what I'm talkin bout!!

We have discussed him before and we were all very excited to see what he could do in the Senior bowl.

He showed up fat and ineffective...a HUGE dissapointment.

Probably ate his way out of the draft.

Lane could still be a nice late-round pick--he's just a mauler. Kind of like playing Casey Hampton at RB.

If he can't control his weight when he is about to addition for an NFL contract, thats a bad sign.

he's a tub of lard who can barely move. he would get zero yards behind the steelers' O-line.

he's fat because he is lazy. how lazy? he didn't show up for his pro day.

This guy would be great behind the 2004 O-line, Dan Kreider and without BA calling the shots.

No place for him now IMO.

Nice highlight reel though.

Watching 260 lb Le'Ron McClain last year left me yearning for the days of our former 315 lb tailback.

I would like a 300 lb Steeler tailback called the "City of Meat"...

http://ncaafootball.fanhouse.com/200...-city-of-meat/

Jovorski Lane is a City of Meat

Posted Nov 24th 2006 1:11PM

But nothing compares to watching A&M hand the ball off to a battleship-sized tailback with a first name accidentally detached from the end of some Warsaw resident and the corresponding terror in the poor, poor secondary members tasked with taking down the City of Meat when he bursts into the secondary. I mean, I had heard about Lane earlier in the year, but living in Big Ten country where Big Ten games regularly override ABC's Big 12 coverage I hadn't actually seen... it in person. Not to get all Michael Irvin on you, but there's got to be some Refrigerator Perry in his background, right?

I wouldnt mind seeing him in the 6th round and if someone could watch his diet with him he would be a beast for us.
