Thanks for all the effort Hightower, you ran hard and made sure you left everything on the field when given a second chance in the NFL.

I am think more power like Hightower

Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma 6011 226 4.50 #25 rSo
Alvin Kamara RB/KR Tennessee 5102 215 4.56 #6 rJr
Brian Hill RB Wyoming 6010 219 4.54 #5 Jr
Marlon Mack RB South Florida 5113 213 4.50 #5 Jr
Jamaal Williams RB BYU 6005 220 4.53 #21 rSr
Jones, Aaron RB Utep 5084 208 4.50 #29 rJr
Justin Davis RB USC 6005 200 4.54 #22 Sr

I really like Brian Hill at pick 103 since we do not have a 4th

Brian Hill RB Wyoming 6010 219 4.54 #5 Jr

He is flying under the radar for the most part. solid size and loaded with power. A one cut guy that is a much better between the tackles. He does have a great ability to break tackles, pick the correct hole and a nose for the first down. He gets those hard earned yards and create yards when there does not look to be a hole. Wyoming did not throw to him much. He stayed in to block a lot and developed into one of the best pass blocking backs in the draft. This is probably the reason he was used as blocker more than a receiver. The few times they did he look pretty natural catching the ball. But short yardage and goal line duties look to be his ticket into the NFL. Pass protection and blitz pick up skill set will keep the door open to expanding his role. (4 - 5)
