While I don't think RB projects to a real need next year, as they stand to have (4) NFL caliber backs (Ridley, Woody, Vereen & Bolden), I do have my eye on a couple big, power SEC backs that could be available on Day 3.
1. Christine (pronounced Christian) Michael (5-11 220) Tex A&M- BB generally likes big backs, upwards of 220 or so... this kid has good power and feet, shows good patience on stretch plays and generally hits the hole between the tackles... a north/south kid that doesn't take a lot of false steps. He also has a decent burst in the open field. He did suffer a broken leg in 2010 and a torn ACL in 2011 so there are some durability questions.
2. Spencer Ware (5-11 225) LSU- Another big power back that runs with good balance. LSU has a stable of these types that they used to grind down defenses.
As for Maysonet, I'll be curious to see what his weight is, I've seen him listed at 205 and 210. Kid flashed some athleticism, power and explosion in that tape, has the natural leverage at 5-9, but I think he could run with a little better pad level (runs a little upright, IMO)... intriguing late round kid.
Maysonet can play, runs fast, hits the holes quick and is surprising tough, have seen him play a bunch of times at Stony brook. ran well against division one opponents when given the chance. Simply dominated the playoff level. He was invited to the combine and is listed on the list of extras to be called if any running backs get hurt for the senior bowl( I think).
Thanks for the feedback, tg.
