  • Jacob Hester

    I didn't think this beast was a FB. He takes a great degree of rushes for LSU. He's the hero this year on offense. Is he gonna be a FB or do you think he's capable at RB in the draft.

    He might play FB, but he sure doesn't run like one...I think he could easily play HB in the NFL, he's a lot better than most of the guys available.

      Every team should have a big back that can lay as many licks as he takes. Whether or not Hester can be the next Bettis doesn't really matter. He's going to be one helluva contributor to some team's running game. I'd definitely like to see him in Oakland's committee.

        I think he can be a very good role player/mix-in runner. He's got a very good skill set. He can run well: He breaks tackles, stays low, has good vision, gets north-and-south quickly, and he has deceptive speed. He's also a fantastic blocker and a good receiver. I actually recently had the Cowboys pick him on my Dallas mock.

        Also, I believe there was already a thread on this a page or two back.

            I would take Hester over Leonard any day. As of HB that is. Hester is just more of an all-round athlete.

                He may be a decent role player, but I don't think he does well as a NFL RB. I haven't paid as much attention to him as a FB though.

                  I bet he could if the defender was laying down or something...

                  I like Hester. He's a power back that is never tackled in the background, and has a low center of gravity so he can glance off tacklers but still has the power to run through them. Not to mention, he's a solid blocker and never, ever fumbles. He's also much faster than people give him credit for. As to when he'll get picked...I have no clue...

                    How is Hester a better all around player?...Leonard has been the full time HB, and the full-time FB...as well as catching close to 200 passes in his career. Leonard is a much, much better player..

                      Bettis? Have You seen him run? Have you seen his size? He doesn't really compare to Bettis. He is a sure RB to me I was surprised to see him at FB. RACISM!!!! haha

                        Not all around, but he's a much better RB. You know he's only fumbled once in his career, and it was on his first carry? Thats pretty impressive. If you don't know much about Hester please dont post. There is a misconception about him. He's not a slow big blocker, but played HB better than he ever played FB in his career. He's limited also in his past because of our RB committee. Even this year he doesn't get full carries.

                          if Hester is smart he'll bulk up and advisertise himself as a fullback come draft time, unlike Leonard who tried to lose weight and convince everyone he could play tailback.

                            The production is clearly there for him. If he comes out and runs well, some team will definitely want to take a shot at him. He can be part of a good rotation i think and if he doesnt run so well, his skills as a FB will land him in that role somewhere...

                              No he's a much better prospect as a RB. He runs a 4.65. Has great handling with the ball. Sheds tackles. Clutch on crucial plays. Follows blockers well. How can you take that talent and throw him at FB? He weighs 228, about the size of Chauncey Washington. He will get an earlier pick if he goes for RB.
