Yea he is nice. The new oc definitely hurt his draft stock. He was awesome when tannehille was the qb.

STRENGTHS - Michael has a solid, compact frame and does not shy away from contact inside. He consistently falls forward for extra yards and can make himself small to get through tight spaces. He has good vision and is quick to get upfield after his initial cut.

WEAKNESSES - Michael is an average athlete with limited elusiveness and acceleration. He is not a threat in space because of his lack of top speed, and shows limited tackle-breaking ability. While he tends to fall forward, he often has his weight too far in front of him, which causes him to lose his balance on cuts. He is not a competitive blocker and does not carry out his fakes well on play-action. He has limited experience running a true route tree and is not a reliable threat in the passing game.

SUMMARY - As a junior in 2011 Christine Michael was having a productive season until he broke his right tibia in October and missed the remainder of season. Based on his senior film Michael may not be fully recovered from last year's injury, as he was a huge disappointment to evaluate. While he has the size and frame of an NFL RB he lacks the burst needed to consistently get through tight spaces before they close, and is not a threat running outside or in space. His ineffectiveness on 3rd down was even more disappointing, as he did not display the aggressiveness or technical skills needed to be effective in blitz pickup, and he tended to give up on plays before completing fakes and pass routes. How he performs in the spring will be critical to his draft status, as teams at this stage must be wondering if his lackluster 2012 was due to lingering effects from his injury last year or simply an accurate depiction of his limited skill set. While I expect him to be drafted on day three, based off film study he presents better value as a priority free agent.

He was our best rb here at A&M. The man runs as hard as anyone else in college football. And although the OP's video makes him out to be a speed back, he has legitimate power. Whoever drafts this guy will have a quality RB for years. The only thing I'm concerned about is his attitude. He was sidelined a lot this year, despite being our best RB. And from what I've read/heard, it was because of disagreements with Coach Sumlin.

Impressive set of attributes and skills. Looks like he brings an all purpose 3 down back package. Was not asked to catch a lot of balls, but you can see in his athleticism that he should be productive in that role as well. I heard the rumors of his attitude as well.

this guys combine numbers might put him way out of reach, but his character might bring him back to the 3rd or 4th, but he may be the best RB in this draft when all is said and done.

Nice film.

Though to be honest (and get on a side tangent): if we take a running back somewhere in this draft, I'd be perfectly fine with it being Marcus Lattimore somewhere in the 4-7th rounds (if he were available then, which I think he will). Running back is a luxury for us right now, so we could afford to pick him on the 3rd day, sit him on the shelf this year, and rehab him to be ready for the 2014 season, since at that time we'll likely be faced with Ivory leaving, an aging Sproles, and we'll be at or close to the end of Ingram and Pierre's contracts. It was a nasty injury, but McGahee and Peterson have come back just as strong as they were before, and Lattimore is a freak physical specimen. Worth the risk to me.
