The Forgotten Rb. Ameer Abdullah


Recommended Posts

I haven't seen a lot of chatter about this guy and I don't know why.

This guy reminds me of Lesean Mccoy in the way he runs. He can start and stop on a dime. Very flexible in his lower body evident by his combine best for RB's 3-cone of 6.79 seconds

He also posted combine bests for RBs in the broad jump @ 10'10'' and 42.5'' vertical. Can you say explosive?

I think you're going to have to spend a 2nd rounder on him to get him though.

That's why I think we go a different route. Johnson has the frame to get bigger but Ameer is maxed out.

Johnson getting bigger is...scary. He's already around 230 lbs and 6'2. Built like a linebacker. He's the best receiving running back in the draft, some of the catches he makes are just nuts. Real confusing to watch though, think how bad his supporting cast was effected it a bit since he looked way more decisive in the Senior Bowl but there are some times he'll go down way too soon for a guy his size, and others where he straight up lays the boom and runs over people. His cuts are nasty too. Great in pass protection too...just a complete back. So underrated.

I was referring to Duke who is zone ready, but David is certainly a prospect to watch. :) The one game I watched of him his team used him more as a receiving threat than a runner.

I like him, but I think we need a bigger back to compliment Freeman and Antone.

5'10 is plenty big for an rb, he's the perfect height for the position, and is an instant upgrade. He says he patterns his game after Warrick dunn, imo he's better.
