You talking about Kamara or Tyren?
Kamara is 5'10", 195

Definitely possible that Tyren and Kamara may transfer but hoping they both stick around.
Kamara- suffered a meniscus injury in camp and had to have surgery. He was back close to 100% within 4 weeks of the procedure but that ended his chance to contribute this year.
Tyren- is 5'9", 215 and pr...

@CrimsonFlounder.....he and Kamara played in Georgia's largest class.....which is deemed by many as the best/toughest classification in the nation. 15 different teams (ie. Grayson, Lowndes, Valdosta, Camden County, Colquitt County, North Gwinnett, etc) in the class were ranked in the Rivals Top 100 ...

@Taylormade....... Think he had around 255-260 yards on 22 carries and 3 TDs that game. Sad thing is they called 3 TDs back on penalties including a 80+ yarder. Otherwise, he runs for 400-410 yards on 25 carries and 6'TDs....and he didn't play in the 4 qtr.
That was 2011/Junior Year when he was a...

Yeldon should remain in the 218-220 range. Ladainian Tomlinson and Adrian Peterson both considered putting on extra weight.......but both realized it was not a wise long-term decision. You can find articles on both by searching their name and "weight-gain".

Not saying he's currently as good as those RBs but his "skillset" and style remind of a combination of those RBs. He's not just like either of them....but has certain elements of each.

Think Jones is more of combo of Mark Ingram/Barry Sanders/Doug Martin/Giovani Bernard......not in 2013 but in the future.

I agree that as WR
-Runs better routes
-More explosive on the field. Julio didn't appear explosive to me at Bama until the Tennessee game in 2010. Cooper ran 4.34 this Spring and looks it on the field
-Better ball skills
-Much better hands. Julio dropped a lot of passes
