    Any how, I am talking more about actual football speed. Bush is fast, without any doubt. But I just have never seen him look this fast. Dri can pop dat thang. Reggie just kind of semi pops it.

    Watch the 2 min. mark. In hindsight, I think Bush is more of a 2-3rd round talent.

    This vid has one of the best jams of all time.


    Bush put together one of the single best, most electrfying seasons for a RB of all time at USC. The man was unstoppable. He was a top 5 pick as a RB or as WR. Had he put up more modest numbers like Gio Bernard did at UNC or Chris Johnson did at ECU then, sure a 2nd round guy but he didnt and was a run away heisman winner instead. (I used CJ and GB as comparisojns because i described them both as poor mans reggie bush prior to being drafted)

    Bush had 1740 rushing yards and 18 TDs with highlight after highlight after highlight and almost 9 yards per carry....that is unreal. Archer did get 9 per carry in 2012, but were talking a different animal when it comes to offense and quality of competition

    Jeff Demps was faster too. I don't think he ran the 40 at the combine.

    But since entering the NFL, he has not produced to the level of a top 5 pick. He had tons of talent around him at USC. All I am saying is I think DA could have more highlight, big plays than Bush has.

    I hope so... but I'll believe it when I see it. I'm not holding my breadth.

    If I'm drafting a short guy who weighs less than 180 lbs., give me the guy who gets timed in the 4.2's instead of 4.5, who has a dozen more reps of 225 lbs., and has a vertical jump a half foot higher. But that's just me.


    Ruthless 2017 Mock Draft:
    1.30 ILB Zach Cunningham 6'3" 234 Vanderbilt
    2.62 OLB Jordan Willis 6'4" 255 Kansas State
    3.94 CB Sidney Jones 6'0" 186 Washington
    3.105c DE Tanoh Kpassagnon 6'7" 289 Villanova
    4.135 CB Rasul Douglas 6'2" 209 West Virginia
    5.173 RB James Conner 6'1" 233 Pittsburgh
    6.213 SS Lorenzo Jerome 5'10" 204 St. Francis

    I agree Ruthless but I wanted Thomas before the draft. The guy plays much faster than a 4.5. I think both are going to be great.

    Wasnt disputing that. I agree, just more of a comparison of two pretty similar players.

    I want to see archer doing some of that...untouched running
