North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky is the first quarterback off the board in the NFL draft, baffling college fans who saw Clemson’s Deshaun Watson tear apart Alabama’s defense and who have Reebok Cheap Jerseys few memories from Trubisky’s 13 career starts.
There’s no questioning his ability to pound the ball. Foreman ate up 323 carries last fall as the only real weapon in a disappointing Longhorn offense. Despite his massive workload and the fact Big 12 defenses where predicated on stopping him, he still managed to rip off more than 6 yards per touch.
But while he was a master of one trade, the remainder of his skills left plenty to be desired. Foreman was essentially limited to running duties only in Austin. He had only 13 receptions in his three seasons. He also wasn’t asked to do much as a blocker, so when NFL opponents throw blitzes, he’ll struggle to keep his quarterback upright.
Foreman also struggled with fumbles in the FBS, coughing the ball up seven times. He also tends to shy away from contact, which is understandable given his workload, but a waste of his biggest asset as a back, his size. Without top-level acceleration, he might struggle to blast through closing holes like he did with the Longhorns.
Foreman is a massive tailback. While he measured in at 6’ and 233 pounds at the NFL Combine, his playing weight rose all the way into the 250s during his time in Austin. Though he doesn’t always use that size well, a reduced workload should better prepare him to throw his weight around in NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys short-yardage situations.
