To clarify, he's not AP. Not even close. But those are 2 runners that are violent and deliver a blow when they're running the ball. Most RBs don't have anything close to that. If he could stay in shape, he's not a guy defenses want to have to tackle 20+ times a game.

There are plenty of other RBs in the NFL that do exactly what you say Dwyer does. What puts them ahead of Dwyer is the fact they don't show up to camp out of shape for three straight seasons. Dwyer just isn't worth it anymore. Assuming the other RBs stay healthy through training camp and the preseason, his roster spot should be used at a different position.

You combine that with a young talented 3 down back and you should see some serious production.
Rookie Le'Veon Bell was RB w/Steelers first team offense for 4 of its 5 snaps in team drills to end practice. Carried 3 times.
