Makes no sense to include what Julio has done in the pros when making this decision.....given that Amari has not yet had the opportunity to show what he can do in the pros.
Based on what each displayed at Alabama.......Amari Cooper would be my selection. ...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Kenyan Drake as a return man next year? - Remy74 on 12/11/14 at 1:01 pm|
I'd go Cyrus Jones or ArDarius Stewart...perhaps Bradley Sylve on KO returns. Chris Black would be a solid option on punt returns.
Speed guys- KO return
Shifty guys- Punt return
Maybe it's just me but I think Marlon Humphrey is/was a bit overrated. He has elite straight-line speed but he...

| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Jones>Henry - Remy74 on 11/24/14 at 8:28 am|
Let's not get ahead of ourselves here.......as Jones and Henry bring different attributes to the table.
I will say this........Drake, Henry, and Jones are 3 different types of RBs and probably the "paradigm" on how you should recruit the RB position in order to have players that complement each o...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Derrick Henry a bust? - Remy74 on 11/23/14 at 8:33 pm|
Henry needs to work his lower body to strengthen his posterior chain (glutes and hamstrings). He's 1 of the few top RBs that doesn't have a muscular posterior chain.....and this is why he lacks elite burst and power in terms of the inside running game.
He has the ability but needs to realize t...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Predict the RB depth chart next year - Remy74 on 11/23/14 at 8:28 pm|
Assuming everyone takes care of business off the field during the offseason.
-Henry and Jones will be the traditional 1-2 RB punch
-Drake will be used in an All-Purpose role....more like a Percy Harvin in college. Similar to how he was used this year but with more touches.
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: ArDarius Stewart > Chris Jones - Remy74 on 11/20/14 at 8:36 am|
Stewart is an explosive athlete, Alabama 2A State Champ in the 100m and 200m dashes in 2013. Times in both events are comparable to the times of Kenyan Drake in high school.
100m PR- 10.83
200m PR- 21.91
200m PR- 22.01
Stewart was also the Alabama 2A State ...

Not enough data to draw a conclusion:
-Quality of OLine
-Need more carries (ie. flip a coin 10 times you might get 9 heads and 1 tail......flip the coin 10,000 times you will NOT get 9,000 heads and 1,000 tails. Larger sample = more likely the true outcome/quality of the RB o...

| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Blake Sims leads the nation in completion % vs FBS teams - Remy74 on 9/8/14 at 8:46 am|
He's currently at 10.1 yards per pass attempt. That would have led the entire nation several of the past few years.
Obviously, he's only played 2 games but given this 10.1 yards per attempt number and the fact that Kiffen has essentially implemented a West Coast Offense (which is designed to spr...

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 ...
| Alabama Sports Board|| re: Tyren Jones amazing run!! Help!! - Remy74 on 8/12/13 at 5:57 pm|
@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".
