I too don't want to be buzz killington, but he really doesn't seem like anything special to me. I would be happy if I were wrong, but when you watch the elite RB's run in college, you can just tell there is something special about them. Yes Barner is fast but he doesn't seem as shifty or elusive as many other RBs in the league. When you watch AP, stewie, D-will, MJD, or even someone small like darren sproles, you see them run and they look like they can make anyone miss either with a juke or a truck move. the way in which he runs it seems as soon as contact is made he is going to go down.
I hope I'm wrong, I just think there is a reason he dropped to round 6.
this. I can't quite explain why, but I really didn't feel his highlights were THAT great. He didn't have the break away speed I expected or the shiftiness.
Also USC's defense should be ashamed at watching that tape, my god did they look bad.
