This thread is dedicated to players who had breakout years a few years ago and have seem to fallen off the map. The first player to mention is Lynell Hamilton. The guy was a force in the MWC as a freshman in 2003 and after a devastating ankle injury and some sub par years he has now been moved to FB. It's really a shame because he looked to be a serious NFL prospect with his size and skill set.

Wait...if he was a Senior from Oregon State last year, how could he be a Freshman All-American? Or is that just the piss poor grammar again?

Can I see a link cause the other day I was looking through the 2007 offense scouting reports on scout.com and they thought he was going to stay at RB.

It's in the Lindy's Preseason Mag under San Diego State's season writeup. It says the RB corps is deep enough that they have move Lynell Hamilton to FB

nope JJ Arrington was a 2nd round pick. He started the season his rookie year and sucked, partially why because of the bad o line.

He's been doing pretty well. I think he has a penalty problem but watching him and Pace work on opposite sides is really pretty.

I'm pretty sure this thread was created for the sole purpose of me talking about Justin Vincent.

Vincent had an extremely promising and simply outstanding freshman year at LSU. Rushed for 1,001 yards (6.5 avg) and 10 TDs in starting only half the season. A combined 318 yards and 3 TDs in the SEC Championship and BCS National Championship games -- he was MVP of both. Flashed lot of potential to be a great college running back for three or four years, along with a great pro prospect.

Three years later, and you're left asking yourself what happened? Between injuries and falling out of favor, he fell off the map. In his last 3 years at LSU, he only rushed for a combined 1,020 yards (4.0 avg) and 7 TDs, and did not come remotely close to duplicating his freshman success. In the 2007 NFL Draft, he went undrafted and signed with the Atlanta Falcons as a UFA. As an LSU fan, it's truly a sad story of "what could have been."

Ha ha lol what happened to DeVaurn Thompson from Rutgers and Jeremy Scott from MSU

Devraun has been to several camp tryouts and hasn't gotten an offer. I think he will end up in the Arena league next year. He's just one of those guys who makes plays on the field and could be a dynamite ST guy but doesn't have the measurables.

what happened to Jerome McDougal?

what happened to William Joseph?

William Joseph was looking good a few years ago, but then got injured. Since coming back he is back to his underachieving self. With Kiwi moving to DE, Joseph has seen more snaps at DE this year. I think it's his last year with the Giants.
