If Hill has a great year and decides to leave next year along with Blue, I think this Guy could step in and run the ball with Hilliard(unless he decides to leave too). This no RB in the class thing is what worries me some.
quote: People think he's too slow to play MLB (they suggest DL)... So why put him in the backfield? If he put on 40 lbs I can see him taking snaps at fullback.
The people who think he's slow don't understand that he was playing in the 260-270 range. Not one of the recruiting site has his actual weight up. People talk about him going to the D-line not because of his speed but because of his weight. If he puts on 40 pounds he'll be over 300 and that doesn't sound like a fullback to me even if our full backs are bigger than most.
I was thinking his weight was 240... So by that understanding 40 added lbs would put him at our desired fullback weight.
If he's really 260-270 then yeah, he wouldn't have to gain much if any. I just see Chavis wanting to keep him at MLB and cutting his weight. He can just a easily play DE at that weight as will. He's already bigger than Sam and mingo if your weights ate correct.
I know Chavis wants speed over mass but for a mike a 260 lb'er would work in his system. As long as he isn't slow. Who am I to question the chief though. Hell put him where he puts him and he'll do well. I'm most excited about Melvin. Future skull cracker.
