    Very fast, good kick returner I believe he plays for Kanasas ST...A bit small though. I think third rounder or lower.

    Extremely fast runner with almost Barry Sanders like juke moves (nowhere near as good though). Extremely small though at 5'7". Will most likely be a 3rd down/ change of pace back in the NFL. Might succeed in a system that smaller backs can thrive in, like Denver or Atlanta (though I doubt those teams will draft him)

    agree he could end up being a 3rd down back at best in the NFL

    but is he worthy of a shot?

    He's got game, just watch the video.

    Fred Russell went undrafted. If this guy is there round 6 or 7, is he worth a draft pick?

    Or if undrafted, do we go after him?

    As far as I know he was at least a two year starter with no serious injury.

    The only way he doesn't make it to day two is if he runs a sub 4.3 40 & someone needs a KR/PR & 3rd down back really bad.

    Sproles is a smaller back, but he's not really built like a smaller back. He's short, but stocky. Low center of gravity. Very powerful thighs.

    We're not going to bring back Travis Minor, so if he is there toward the end of the draft, he might be worth bringing in and putting alongside Wes Welker on kickoffs.

    He was a great college RB. However, in the NFL he'll be nothing more than a 3rd down back because of his size.

    He does have TREMENDOUS agility and speed though, almost Barry Sanders like.

    Hopefully, we have a premier kick returner in Welker. So far, I think he's show what he can potentially do.
