He's a RB who's really only as good as his offensive line. He won't break many tackles adn won't make a ton of guys miss with on a dime cuts. I think his future in the NFL is as a 3rd down back catching lots of balls out of the backfield and running draws.
I thought the game today was actually pretty boring and lackluster. I was surprised Mariota won the award as I didnt really think he had a very good game. Although he did have a long TD dropped and another long TD that was not completed cuz it was lost in the lights. Nobody really stood out on offense since De'Anthony's big play came on special teams.
We're going to miss Clay and Alonso next year. Although I think we have good players to replace them. I'm excited to have some stronger, tougher RB's next year.
Btw, love me some Chip Kelly. Goes out with class. Giving all the credit to his players and a ton of credit to K State. I know a lot of opposition hate him, but he's a pretty humble good dude imo.
