He can handle LBs & Safeties in the blocking schemes...opens the playbook bc of his ballhandling abilities. They are gonna need to find a way to keep him & Edmunds away from other teams. I just think both have "it" for this offense.

I'm pretty sure Victor is a RB, not a FB.

If we need a FB, we sign a FB.

Exactly. Victor is a Joe Morris type of RB, he'll snipe goal line touches from Ingram and AD...

But he'd get his head taken off trying to open holes for other backs...

Re: Lewis, Lasco or Bighill?

IDK..as the league evolves even more pass-oriented, I believe the fullback position can evolve into quicker, smaller version of itself. Hydrid LBs. Hybrid Safeties. Smaller, quicker versions of the positions. Pass Rush specialists are smaller & quicker DEs lining up outside the OT. RBs have to lay the wood against blitzing LBs & DBs in pass protection. Don't see why laying the wood against the same personnel going downhill in run blocking is impossible to learn in 1-2 seasons.

Maybe I'm smoking crack, but the NFL has changed since Alstott, Neal & Mack Strong. Back in the day I don't remember many RBs lining up at WR & running a wideout's route tree...seems I see it every game now. I don't think its too farfetched for the FB position to change. I believe Victor could do it if the coaching staff saw fit.

BTW...this thread went sideways.

I don't think he has the size. Regardless of how the NFL evolves, why even have a fullback if not to block? Otherwise you're just running a two running back set.

Re: Lewis, Lasco or Bighill?

2 back set is what it would be except 1 back could carry out the role of the FB in both I & split formations. Plus I've seen CAR's RBs (other than Tolbert) run block for Douche Nozzle.

Speaking of Tolbert, 5'9" 246 lbs 4.75 40 yd out of college...Victor 5'7" 227 lbs 4.70 40 yd. 2 inches shorter & 20 lbs lighter. And Tolbert ran HB against us and a few others over the years. If anything, Victor is more like Tolbert than anyone I can think of. Tolbert was quick in short spaces & definitely plowed folks. Long term, post-Brees with a Russell Wilson-type QB would be in Victor's wheelhouse...unless Drew plays til he's 50.

Twenty extra pounds is considerable in a running back when it comes to making bruises on the other team's defense.
