No? Houston put up staggering numbers aginst that level of competition. Lowly KU cut those big numbers in half. Isn't Sproles way up there on those charts? And all he can do is run back kicks in the NFL. Time will tell on this guy.

If Sproles were bigger than 5'5", he'd be a very good NFL RB.

Probably so. How big is your guy?

Probably so. How big is your guy?Two is 5'8" or 5'9" and 215 lbs. As evidenced by the way he churned for that TD run a few minutes ago, he has more than enough strength to make it at the next level.

Some people think it's hyperbole to compare him to Priest or LaDainian, but it's not. He is in that mold.

30 carries for 233 yards (7.8 yards per carry) and 3 TDs in the final game of his collegiate career.

He will finish the season as the nation's leading rusher in 2005 and the #4 rusher in NCAA history.

If they list him at 5'8" he is probably 5'6". For what it's worth I've only seen one RB under 5'9" ever do anything in the pros. It isn't all strength either. I've seen your guy get flattened twice today before he could even get started. Those big NFL DL throw the little guys around like rag dolls. Sproles is quick as a cat but would lose some of that if he were 4 or 5 inches taller. Thurman Thomas kept B. Sanders on the bench till he graduated. Sanders also didn't start till his senior year in high school. He is truly an exception.

He's listed at 5'10", foosball genious. He's no smaller than LaDainian Tomlinson.

And that's quite a revelation, that running backs go down quickly when they're hit before they have any chance to generate momentum.

F'ck you, jackass. The little ones only require one hand by a big DL. But then you appear to know everything so I won't be talking to you again.
