    He did great in the bench press as well.

    he looked funny going for the tape measure....his head was barely above the tape, and in the field drills, he looked like a midget running around...yet for a mid rounder (Zgonina) I would definitely take a chance on him...his speed alone could be a difference maker

    Travis Minor is slow compared to him.

    Thus the term "Rich Man's"...

    He has some of the best juke moves I've seen since Barry Sanders (Nooooo I'm not saying he's as good as Barry)

    His size is a major hinderance, that's why I don't ever see him starting in the NFL...unless he's drafted by Denver where he would become the league rushing leader :lol:

    I picked Sproles to have the biggest combine of all the RB because he has the speed and moves to be both a RB and KR, plus he has to constantly work hareder to get the recognition because of his size. The guys at the combine were chucling when Sproles was being mesured. Still I don't think we should even think about him unless he's in the 5 or 6 rounds and I think he will be gone long before that. How about another small guy R.Parrish running in the 4.3 rang:eek: he was impressive.

    IMO Sproles is too small to ever be a feature back in the NFL.

    Maybe a kick returner in the NFL.

    I can see J.J. Arrington however being a feature back one day in the NFL.

    He's quick, fast, strong, built low, and can catch.
