I feel nabbing him in the Top 15 in devy drafts is a bit aggressive. There is a lot of proven college talent that will be draft eligible within the next few years. I currently have him in the 20's; very impressive size/speed specimen. I want to see him dominate as a freshman since he will already be 19 years, 8 months when the season rolls around. A pedestrian freshman campaign would really plummet him down my rankings.

I love what I've seen from him so far and am excited to see more, of course. He is a bit old for a true freshman, and while it seems crazy to worry about age at this point, I do think it's something to consider.

As far as rankings, I'd still have him ranked very highly, probably in the top 10, at this point.

There are at least 5 RBs in this freshman class just as good as him. He's been the #1 pick in 2 of my second-year Devy drafts. I don't really see the value there.

I've also seen him go #1 in a couple of my Devy leagues. Personally I wouldn't take a RB with that pick, especially one that has never even played in college yet.

Not overly impressed thus far. Looks like another back that could benefit from shedding about ten pounds. Very heavy on his feet and lacks change of direction skills. He does not stand out in this freshman class.

*02/16/2015 EDIT: He really improved as the year went on. Looked more decisive and showed better patience. I'd still like to see some weight loss and added agility, but would not have an issue with anyone nabbing him in the first round of devy drafts.

And one that has 3 years left to play in college. Injury risk is significant.
