In 2012, Jeremy Hill, a Freshman running back, got some snaps at RB after LSU's stable of backs were suffering injuries. Since his first game, roughly a quarter of the year in, Hill's compiled:
2,156 Yards on 345 attempts
Career YPC: 6.2
Rushing Touchdowns: 28
In 2013, after being suspended for game one against TCU, Hill put up:
1,401 Yards on 203 attempts
Season YPC: 6.9
Rushing Touchdowns: 16
Hill has great vision and is a homerun hitter at any point and time. He has been revered for his blocking as a back, and has a big thick frame with the speed to break away at the next level. He displayed solid hands out of the backfield.
He's is projected in the 3rd to 5th round of the draft, due to one reason and one reason only
He ran into some legal trouble both prior to LSU and after his freshman campaign.
Arrest 1) As an 18 year old, apparently made some 14 year old suck him off
Arrest 2) Was drunk at a bar in "Tigerland" where he sucker punched a dude harassing him (reason he missed the TCU game)

Obviously this is a homer pick to me, but after watching the dude the past two years, hes got potential to be a really good back the next couple years. He rarely suffered injuries while at LSU and hes got a big thick frame. On top of everything, hes got a lot of tread left on the tires since LSU uses such a large stable of backs
This would allow the Panthers to potentially move some guys around who have big contracts who don't play...
The thing thats bugging me however is we are consistently picking 9th
Which they have us taking:
6-10 240 PF
Analysis: "Vonleh is one of the most talented freshmen, with tremendous basketball tools. He is a warrior in the paint -- a terrific rebounder and defender -- but his offensive game has a long way to go. "
I get frustrated with these raw talents that have zero offensive game (Biz, MKG)
