The eye test says he doesn’t run with any authority. We will get the runningback we need eventually. GBO! Going to give Smalls props for running hard and Wright is going to get better can see already he is showing flashes, he has a fast first step when he figures out where he needs to run. Whitehead continues to improve. Coach Mack is doing a good job. GBO!
If you don't love bringing the contact to the opponent, then there is really no position on a college football team for said player. You can get away with it in HS where some lesser players are intimidated by your size alone. Not embracing contact is a problem with QB2 also it's in their mind and is a definite roadblock. I really don't think it can be coached out of a player's make-up.
That was his best position. And he did good till he quit then he looked like he just quit working out to be wr got smaller and always hurt but he was a good strong back broke alot of tackles and ran people over.
There are a ton of 6'5" 215 lb guys without speed out there. Why do fans continue to think he's some sort of "freakish" athlete? He's not blazing fast. He's not going to run over people. Hell a USA defender stood him up.
I've not seen one single thing to date that indicates he can play in this league.
