Darren Sproles was an every-down back. He was incredibly productive and still went later than he really should have.
Not trying to be negative, this is reality. Everyone said similar things about how Mario Fannin's and Darvin Adams' talents were going to get them drafted and look what happened. The NFL just sees things differently.
Look at the bright side - we got him for two more years.

Alabama delenda est.
Omac is 5'11 or 6 ft and around 170. Guys like sproles and little train were 5'6 & 5'7, guy that are shorter have better durability in the NFL because the run with a very low pad level. OMAC still runs a little upright, once you lower your pads it make it more difficult for a defender to get a clean hit on you.
I'm not sure if you can compare OMAC to Sproles or James.
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
