Re: diamonds in the ruff

i too like Hannible and i think we could get him as UDFA
i also like Laverus Giles,RB,Jackson State
220 lbs 6-1 but we want get him unless he is a practice squad guy
he is fast like reggie but 20 lbs. heavier he had a problem for a while of running full speed to then line (like reggie) before the hole could open
they slowed him down and he started getting to line as it was opening and started averaging 7 per carry as for being fast i base it off his running track and coming in 2nd in the nation in the 100m dash
