Well..I'd say Alley Broussard if this were 2005, but theres no telling if he'll even show up this year.

Hes a basket case. Very talented, but he can't seem to stay healthy or in shape.

Mario Fannin.

May be a bit early but he looks studly.

Also, I saw a video of Darren McFadden at spring practice, he looks like he bulked up a lot, looks around 230 now.

OhioState
04-14-2007, 10:08 PM
230 is huge. he will be extremely dangerous this year. with that size and speed i really wouldn't want to have to tackle him.

I'm not gonna lie, Auburn running back talent = scary. Thats not even counting Enrique Davis who hasn't arrived yet.
This group will rival Carnell/Ronnie/
PS: Not sure if anyone knows him, but Auburn's already offered some appearently incredible 2009 RB out of Oklahoma (David Oku). When you're a RB getting offered before you even take a snap as a JR by Auburn (who's already got enough talent at the position to fill half a conference with starters) you gotta be something special.

Whats incredible is that Auburn may well be the 3rd best group of backs in the SEC.

Arkansas has two future NFL starters, and LSU has guys coming from every direction.

Keiland Williams, Charles Scott, Jacob Hester, Alley Broussard and Trindon Holliday all figure to see a lot of snaps for LSU this year, and just about all of them could start for most teams in the NCAA.

USC has Herscel Denis (now listed at 210) and Allen Bradford who are both very quick, especially Denis. Bradford weighs like 235 and can move very well for his size, he may move back to LB though.

If it wasn't for all the injuries Dennis suffered, he would be a 1st rounder last year. As for Bradford, I heard he is listed at 224 and will be interchanged at RB and FB this year.

I think he's pretty fast. I know he's big enough. He's also a very good receiver. He might meet those requirements. Yeah, he looks like he fits the profile in this video.

That's FS JOSH BARRETT. Surely not the fastest player you've seen, but he is the fastest player on their roster. Very quick indeed. Could be a very interesting prospect at 6'3" 230....

Actually, you can't offer any players until September 1st of their junior year in football.

You can have those 'verbal' offers, but even those are meant to be hush-hush.

Also, about Marlon Lucky. IIRC, he was clocked in the mid 4.5's this past winter if that helps any.

Naaaah! The group at LSU is better. They all are quality RBs and most are very versatile.

When was the last time LSU had better RBs than Auburn?? Talent wise the group currently at Auburn is as good as a few years back when Cadillac Williams, Ronnie Brown, and Brandon Jacobs were all on the roster. LSU always has some "incredible talent" at RB, and 9 times out of 10 these guys end up looking like nothing special.

Lester: Can score anytime he touches the ball, the only thing stopping him from being a first/second-round NFL prospect at this point is his thin frame.
Tate: Rivals100, Maryland's all Time leading Rusher. Played as a true Freshman last year and lit it up in a few games.
Fannin: Complete beast, if you want to talk about versatility he was converted to WR at one point last year.
Davis: He'll never make the NFL as a RB but this guy can fly (which is why he's probably the SEC's best kickoff return specialist). If he finds a hole he's not getting caught.

LSU's runningback situation isn't really that great. Williams is a good player, and Broussard has potential but he's always injured or out of shape. Not nearly as good s Aubrun's group.

TigerBait45

Lester, Tate, Fannin and Tristan Davis is better than the group at LSU.

I think thats very subjective, honestly. You could make a case for both sides.

From what I can see, Lester is the only one with any real playing experience, so how do we even know the others are as good as advertised? Lester's pretty damn good though, I'll give you that. All the other guys are surpremely talented but who really knows how they'll produce?

I expect great things from LSU's group this year, so we'll see how it turns out. Keiland Williams is pretty much a bigger Joe Addai, Charles Scott has drawn comparisons to Jamall Lewis when he was at Tennessee, Alley Broussard was a monster only two years ago, and Trindon Holliday may well be the fastest guy in the SEC.

I think "better" won't really mean much when you look at how good both of these groups are.

LaBrandon Toefield, Domanick Davis, Addai and Shyrone Carey, maybe? I'm not sure if all those guys were on the Auburn roster then, but Toefield and Davis were monsters at LSU. Thats about the only time in recent memory I can think of.

Antone Smith is only 5'9, 190 lbs, but he plays like he's 210 lbs. He's got 4.3 speed, and freakish strength(430 lb bench max).

draftguru151
04-15-2007, 04:15 PM
From what I saw last year from Tate, and this spring from Tate and Fannin, both are going to be beasts. The LSU group is deep but none are very impressive. Lester had more yards last year than any LSU back. Tate had over 7 ypc last season. LSU has a good group that goes together well, but they don't have the dynamic backs Auburn has.

TigerBait45
04-15-2007, 04:22 PM
I like Williams chances to become someone like that. I think a lot of the problem for LSU last year was the offensive line, and the fact that Jacob Hester was the guy getting the ball almost every down. Hes tought, but Hester's more of a fullback than anything.

Williams was probably the best back we had as soon as he was recruited, but the clearing house held him up in getting to fall practice so he didn't play much until after mid-season.

Broussard has so much potential is ridiculous. Hes mind-bogglingly frustrating.

He's only going to be a freshman this year, but he fits the mold of your description.

Brandon Saine is 6'1, 210-220 lbs, and runs a 4.3 forty or potentially faster. He's the fastest guy to ever come from the State of Ohio. Set the ohio record for the 100 meter dash, and finished third nationally in track competitions. Not to mention that he's a pretty powerful runner.

Yeah he is crazy nuts. I had to sit in the stands and watch him destroy my old high school team in this years playoffs. It wasn't pretty and he really did it all on his own because his Oline was getting abused.

haha. I am a huge Buckeye but Chris Wells is pretty much puke with arms and legs. Okay, so I'm upset with the kid and over stating a little bit, but if the kid fumbles one more ball his teammates and coaching staff need to start breaking fingers. No worries fellow Buckeyes because Saine will probably bench him anyway.

How is it that he's on roids because he has low bodyfat?

Thats what I hate about roid accusations. Anytime anybody ever sees a picture of someone with high vascularity/low body fat where their veins stick out, they assume... oh, he's on roids.

FWIW, anybody that strong, no matter or not whether they're on roids or not, with body fat percentages below 8 or so will have their veins stick out. Especially after getting a good workout + pump in. It doesn't mean they're on roids.

As far as 85% of players having done roids, thats bs too. Not saying there aren't plenty of roided up players who shot up in highschool, but 85% is a bogus number. Believe it or not, there are plenty of people who are just born strong and athletic. IE Bo Jackson, I believe I read somewhere he barely ever lifted, yet could bench over 300 easily.

Saine is good, but he has a lot to learn as a freshman to take away time from Wells who is already a stud and knows the schemes better. FWIW, Eddie George had a fumbling problem when he was younger. Things worked out pretty well for him. Saine will get some pt, but I highly doubt he'll take away the spotlight from Mo, and Chris Wells.

Wells is already a stud? Wow! I guess we should mark it down that Little Animal is a HOF too? Chris Wells has alot of talent but he needs to fix his ball issues first. Are you old enough to remember Eddie's fumble problems? They weren't this bad. I don't even think Tiki was this bad. He can fix it if he puts in the effort but he still never be as good as Pittman. Also, I'm not calling for Saine to start as a Freshman but he'll get just as much of a chance as Wells did last year and are you serious about Mo? That guy should seriously think about transferring. He is the older of the 3 backs and by seasons end this year he'll be behind both on the depth chart. I say to Mo Wells, go help us at Youngstown State win a D1AA Championship.

wells can be much better than pittman. and to say that tiki had better hands is pretty absurd. tiki was fumbling like 15-20 times a year five years ago. wells can clean up his funbling and will be awesome next season.
