I'd never seen anybody else make the comp. before , but I just found this:
Yeah he had some good moments. I worry about Allen big play ability to be honest x needs to work harder to lock down his wr asignment
It's true that he's tough to draw comps to because he runs a lot harder to tackle than most backs under 190. RB James Brooks is the one that comes to my mind when talking about his running toughness, but there is a father and son duo from way back that played for the Cards - Dad , Browns - son that have his vision and movement. Terry and Eric Metcalf also shared some of Achane's attributes in the open field. The combination of his explosive nature with how hard he runs the ball is complemented by the fact that he keeps his feet and doesn't allow himself to get tripped up. If you don't slam Achane down when you tackle him he is going to break the tackle using his bag of tricks. Honestly, I'd take Achane over any of the RB's we've mentioned, even Dunn.For me Warrick Dunn is the comp. Similar size, almost identical speed. Tough runners. Most of their runs were inside runs. Dunn wore bigger shoulder pads and he was a little more herky-jerky, but other-wise very similar. More similar than any other player I can think of.
He ALWAYS looked much bigger than he was, because of the build of his lower body and the toughness with which he runs. Nice to see everyone else coming around (how could you not?) to the reason I told the Fins to draft him two years ago.Achane looks so much bigger now than when he was in college.
