That's great that you have a crystal ball about who is going to be on the field. It would not shock me if RF did not make it through his college career.
Of course, Nick Marshall is a QB and they are not competing for the same position. AU has a whole bevy of prototypical wide receivers (6-4, 210 lbs), and they just got a bunch more on NSD. They also have a stable of typical big SEC running backs. But in Malzahn's system, there is a need for a slot receiver/RB. Sometimes called an H-back and Malzahn calls it a 3 position back. Most every pro and SEC team now is getting the prototypical small speedy WR/RB (e.g., Florida's Chris Raney, Demps, etc.). They present real match-up problems. The tall WR and big RB don't fit the model. Marcus Davis and Gray King, who are essentially the same size, do fit the model. Marcus will have to transition from throwing to catching. and also learn to run routes that he hasn't done in the past.
Great point. They may not be every down type players, but they are key situational players. You try to get them in space and let them get some yards after catch.
The Patriots do this with Wes Welker and they also use Danny Woodhead out of the backfield as well.
Can we get number 12 to? Just asking!
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
That's great that you have a crystal ball and can tell what position Nick Marshall will end up at. There has been mention of him at WR, and it has been said he has major NFL potential at corner. You wouldn't say that crap about Reuben if he signed with Auburn. People's inability to think with an unbiased mind on this board amazes me. An article 5'9 160 lbs walk on gets posted and people automatically start talking about him being special....He may very well be, but I'll take my chances with a 5 star over a 2 star any day. The chances are just far greater.
