Manley is playing out of the backfield and getting touches. Hard to bring down.

From baby steps to sprints, Toledo's Kareem Hunt running toward NFL:
http://www.espn.com/blog/detroit-lions/p...toward-nfl

Very interesting article from ESPN. Apparently Hunt had a Lisfranc injury in his foot between sophomore and junior seasons - I had not heard that before. I have heard those can be 6 month or more recovery time depending on how severe they are. He played the whole junior year with plates in his foot. No wonder he looked so different from his breakout sophomore season. And yet he still ran for nearly 1000 yards that year in only 9 games.

Add this to the 6 games he missed playing at all, and it seems he could have put up 6000 yards in his career if things had broken (pun intended) differently. Of course, as the article says, if he had been healthy in 2015, he probably would have declared for the draft early, so it UT actually benefited from the injury.

Good luck to Kareem in the draft. Hope he goes to a good team, and one where he can see meaningful PT right away.

ooh, on the other hand, might need a little polish on the best place to start and stop the sentence

Quote:No matter how bad the blocking is up front or if someone missed their assignment,

Start HERE Kareem ==>> I’m trying to make the most of every opportunity I get when I touch the ball, <== GOOD place to stop

and I feel like a lot of those guys are the same way.”

Well, some former Rockets are definitely going to be at the draft this year.

League announced that Walter Payton award nominees/award winners are going to announce the 3rd round picks. Jayrone Elliott is going to announce the Packers' and Lance Moore the Saints' picks.

Would be cool if one of them got to announce Kareem Hunt's name.

Scratching my head thinking"Surely I'd remember a player with a unique name like Stafford Reborn. When did he play? Did he change his name? What position was he?" Then I clicked on the link. Getting old sucks.

The alternative really sucks.
