Emery in action; how long can CEH hold him off?
I love CEH and the experience he'll bring, but Emery is in a different stratosphere talent-wise. Beastly upside with his vision, instincts, burst, elusiveness, and pass catching skills. Highest rated RB recruit here since Fournette.

Emery will pass CEH at some point, and I wouldn't be surprised if Tyrion Davis passes CEH as well.

This is very very possible. I expect him to be the leading rusher on this team by seasons end.

HOWEVER....the video you posted is him against incredibly inferior players. Just because he was a man amongst boys in high school doesn't mean you will see the same results when the defense has 11 players who are similar to him in size, speed and athleticism.

Emery is going to get a good share of snaps early, his talent is undeniable and demands it. However he’s still going to be behind the older guys at least at first. Emery will probably take on a more prominent role as the season progresses but Lanard Fournette and CEH won’t go down quietly. We all know what CEH can do but Lanard Fournette could be one of the biggest surprises this year. Last season he proved that he is a punishing power runner who also has great hands out of the backfield. Being able to catch the ball will be very beneficial for Joe Brady’s offense.

He is already projected by some to win the Heisman before he leaves LSU!

I like Emery. I think he’ll be very good for LSU.

BUT

That jump cut on the swing screen gets eaten up for a loss or no gain 99 times out of 100 against SEC opponents. Just like most other players, it will take time for him to adjust to the speed of the SEC.

ETA: Not going to comment on the way he drags dudes there. It shows he has power, but that isn’t happening at the college level.

Does this mean Chris Curry leaves?

Chris Curry did not impress me at all last year. If he stays, I don’t expect much out of him.

Fournette carried 11 players on his back in HS and college.

Emery and Davis is going to be lightning and thunder for LSU. Emery is obviously a serious homerun threat each time he touches the ball but Davis is incredibly underrated. Be happy they were able to sign both and enjoy watching them the next 3 years play together.

He got a bit of a raw deal last year. Most of his early carries were blown up in the backfield before he ever had a chance, and I think the oaches were just more comfortable with a 4 year veteran Senior who knew the playbook inside-out, and the second year CEH who might be the strongest player pound for pound on the team. I think some people look at Curry's stat line and just think he sucked. But the tape shows that of his 8 attempts, at least half were the o-line just failing miserably with their assignments. I doubt the coaches are judging him this year purely by what happened last year. He had 15 carries for 72 yards and a pair of TDs in the spring game. With that many snaps, I'm sure they are expecting him to play a good bit in 2019.

CEH holds him off until the Florida game... then, Emory takes over and puts the country on notice.

Never said CEH wasn't good and very much respect his game. You're right, CEH is good. But Emery will be great. There's a difference.

Thank you.
Someone starts a positive Emery thread and it doesn’t take long before people stick a pin in it.

Why can’t we be excited about the running game and 2 damn strong RB’s after last year.
LSU is known for great RB’s and these 2 guys may carry on the tradition.

If Emery were to win the Heisman in 2 years, there would still be a few idiots finding some reason to bitch about it. 'Tis the Rant.

He's going to have to be a LOT better than what he showed last season to remain the starter, assuming he is the starter coming out game 1.

CEH had 658 yards rushing & 7 TD's
NB had 1039 yards rushing & 14 TD's

He failed to take the starting spot from Brossette last year & while Brossette was decent enuf (1039 yds & 14 TD's) he was just an avg SEC RB at best.
