Check out his profile so far. 4.73 sec :wow:
The summary does a good job of explaining it.
Hawkins moved the wrong guy to FB.
Sad story, This guy had so much potential....
50-69Draftable Player4th-7thA prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
And he's leaving USF early? :rolling_eyes:
Actually nobody saw him run, a lot of people saw him waddle but nobody saw him run.
What a phenominal waste of potential.
Stop picking on allbuffs posters.
So much wasted potential.
No hate for the guy. He left us, but then again he would have just taken up a roster spot and would have never seen any meaningful playtime here anyway.
But this does reinforce a couple of points:
1. Relying on talent alone isn't a key to success. It helps, but you have to continue to improve yourself.
2. Life isn't fair. DS got an invite to the combine based on the rep of being the #1 RB 4 years ago. Meanwhile Speedy shows his willingness to bust his butt, but doesn't get an invite.
Really no hate for the guy. He just had so much potential. Sorry to see it go like this. I hope he does well in his future endeavors.
Imagine if we had EB on him, when he first came... AP28=DS2
EB isn't a miracle worker. DS2 could also = MH1
Saif on Facebook his quad is hurt and that hurt him in the combine. Meh whatever, the dude shouldn't be at the combine.
Did he finish yet
How the ehck does he even get an invite to the combine??? He's done nothing in years!
Do you really see Stewart as an NFL prospect?
Not even close. Adrian Peterson is a freak of nature with attitude/work ethic to match. You could tell he was special the moment he stepped on the field for OU. Scott showed flashes, but you never saw "special" either.
how can you even ask that.
Maybe he can find a job in a bank?
The doctors that did surgery on him agree with you. They said they have never quite seen a physical specimen like him, dude is just a machine.
About 10X more than Scott, yes
D.Scott would have been the perfect inside RB for us last year. If only his head would have been screwed on straight and he could have avoided the injury bug.
Love speedy to death but he isn't going to play in the NFL. He is more quick than fast and goes down to easily on any kind of contact. He might have a chance as a third down back but doesn't do anything notable on special teams, not an effective returner and again not physical enough to play coverage.
Scott is the opposite. He is a big strong guy who "can" run through guys or around them. When he was in shape he was a very effective KO returner and has the physical atributes to contribute on other STs. His problem is between the ears, all a question of want to. If Scott had Speedy's attitude he would be a first rounder.
Some team may be very willing to spend a draft choice on Scott. They will figure that if they can coach him up and he gets his head together they could have a difference maker. If not he's another bust but worth a shot. Speedy at best will never be more than a marginal guy and teams are a lot less likely to draft him when there are bunches of guys like him available FA.
Mtn - are you aware how effective Stewart was a short yardage back?
I never said he was actually. I just think if people think DS can play in the NFL, then Speedy should be considered to play in the NFL 10X more than Scott.
Scott is a terrible back
When I saw DS get run down from behind by a Toledo LB, I saw all I needed to see. I wish the guy well, but he is overrated. It happens.
This. Add in his drama. You want to see DS run fast? Don't give him his way and he will be fast to run out of town. Did it in High School and did it in college. There is no doubt this trend will follow him to the next level. ****, I still can't believe we are talking about DS in the next level!:lol:
