it's fairly simple. Unlike a lot of the other zone read teams, Malzahn's spread came from the Wing-T offense he'd run early in his (high school?) career. So while almost everyone's spread zone read is basically the inside or outside zone runs with the QB option attached, a lot of Auburn's have pulling linemen - which is what Carolina does. They'll pull a guard for a QB power, or a read option, or just a good ol' buck sweep. They run to power. Most spread RBs don't know a lot about that, and CAP does.
he does play a ton of special teams, and he would've been very helpful when they ended up having to keep Olsen in to block. Tolbert is a tremendous run, pass blocker and a weapon on both offense and special teams. I know it's easy to get hyped for Ward, and I root for everyone. He's talented. But let's let him stand out on a Panthers football field before we give him a roster spot.
