Exactly. They have had a whole succession of outstanding RBs - Ingram, Richardson, Lacy, maybe Yeldon. Who is to say it is the line making them great? Maybe they are giving the line its great rep. Just like a star QB and WR - who is to say who makes who great?

I expect more carries AND more yards and TDs for Lacy.



Or maybe they just consistently have a talented offensive line AND RBs. It doesn't have to be mutually exclusive.

It's not like TJ Yeldon is some schmuck though. That guy was a 5 star recruit and the #2 ranked RB in the nation. By contrast Lacy was a 4 star and the #24 ranked RB recruit. He's going to be a 1st round pick like the other Alabama RBs were. I'm completely happy that we got ours with only a very late 2nd rounder.


I really like T.J. Yeldon's measurable's. I checked them out a few days ago. Kid runs a 4.3 forty too. I think I'd rather Eddie Lacy over T.J. Yeldon (uneducated selection there) because I'd rather someone who is more of a bruiser, than a speedster.

Now, we have two speedsters in Franklin and Harris. For as small as DuJuan Harris is, he packs a whollop too.

I think you're right Zero2Cool. We needed the bruiser. We got the best the draft had to offer.

Harris is gonna be just fine. I think he can play.

That said, he has to make the team. Imo he needs to keep the fire within, and he'll have a successful career, whether that's here or somewhere else.

Yeah the biggest thing about Harris last year is he was finding the holes that the other RBs were missing. The run blocking wasn't great all year but he's the only one who was making it work.
