I would understand that except for the fact that Chris Johnson is the exact same size and he went 1st round. Even years into JC's career he was called 'too small' in spite of the fact that CJ was coming off a 2k season at the same height/weight.

The biggest reason I thought that was bad take in 2008 was watching his games at Texas. This was not a guy who relied on speed entirely. You could see his willingness to run between tackles, he finished runs with physicality, and he had great vision in the open field. I saw a running back... but I guess a lot of NFL teams did not. I also think a lot of teams thought he only succeeded because of the Vince Young effect.
