Reggie Bush Clone Adrian Killins (estimated 4.28 40 yard dash)




Or Pierre Thomas/Darren Sproles clone Clyde Edwards Hillaire (4.6 40 yard dash like Pierre Thomas)

Imagine Henry Ruggs and Adrian Killins on the same offense.

Scary.

That would be scary. I wonder if Detroit will do that.

CEH is custom made to this offense and he isn't a satellite back, he's an every down RB in the NFL. He's more like Maurice Jones Drew than Sproles.
I thought Jones Drew ran a 4.4.

But you're right. CEH did run for 1400+ yards last year and might at the very least be able to split carries in a dual backfield.

MJD was faster, CEH is one of the most dominant 1 v 1 RB's I've seen since Barry Sanders. The guy has so many moves and rarely ever gets tackled by 1 person. Between the tackles, the low center of gravity, leg drive and amazing combination of power and pure will is very much like MJD. It's like every time he touches the ball he is trying to prove to people he isn't too short. I LOVE seeing that in a RB.

CEH isn’t MJD. MJD was a ball of kinetic energy...just a freak. I think he compares better to Ray Rice or even Mark Ingram (after learning to catch).

I remember that you liked David Johnson as much as I did a few years back.

I like a number of backs in this class but I think even most LSU fans here would agree that CEH is probably the best suited for this offense of all LSU prospects this year.

However, Killins is no slouch and had 7 catches for 91 yards in the shrine game and seems to be just scratching the surface of his receiver ability at RB.

He moves so much like Reggie it's incredible.

We'll have to disagree on that one. MJD coming out of UCLA was about 25lbs lighter than he was later in his career. Wish I could find some highlights from his days at UCLA. Tough as nails, could catch and was a pain to bring down. As he added weight in the NFL his legs got hute and he was like tackling a bag of quickrete.

They are the exact same height and combine weight.

5'7 207 lbs.

But Jones-Drew was considerably faster at 4.39.

Jones-Drew also had a 300 yard rushing game once, iirc.

I really think that JK Dobbins compares to Ingram the best.

Yep, David Johnson one hurt. Still couldn't beleive we passed on him for a "future replacent" for Brees. He was out of the league before Brees and Johnson is still a freak.

Not against Killins, just really think they are completely different types of back. I think CEH is a starting 3 down RB in the NFL and those are pretty rare. Killens reminds me a lot of Duke Johnson, lot of hype, kind of raw but a lot of speed. It's getting harder for me to judge these underweight backs, so many bust but in recent years they've succeeded more.

I'm big on a few LSU players but the only one I really think makes sense at our draft spot is CEH and Jefferson on offense. On defense I really like Patrick Queen, thought he was about to become the type of LB that would be a top 10 pick if he stayed at LSU but also really wanted to see what that looked like. Right now I'd feel better about him in the 2-4th round and I don't think he'll make it that far after the way he closed out the season.

I'm usually really good at knowing which LSU players will succeed in the NFL except at pass rusher so I'm not a homer. Even though I did miss on Tre White, didn't expect him to be that good. Honestly though, I have watched a fraction of the football outside of LSU games that I used to watch so I'm not nearly as confident as I once was.
