I'm pretty sure he hacked it well at the East West Shrine Game...5 carries for 41 yards to be exact. You're right though, he got his chances and he didn't make it, but I'd like to know why. Many others share the same feeling as I do.....he's Canadian and White and therefore there is no justification of keeping a player like that on the roster. I think one of the Seahawks and Redskins even had injuries at the position after he was signed but he still didn't make it....he definitely has/had the talent, but it could be that he doesn't understand American offensive terminology or something hidden that you don't notice on a highlight tape. I do have my doubts though.
I'm split.

I think he'd be a solid Role player as a 3rd down/Short Yardage back.

I see a lot of Jerome Bettis in him.

The way he holds the ball, his agillity for his size with the quick choppy steps and the ability to sidestep or run over.

He has another gear, but he doesn't have 4.3 speed, he was caught a tone of times.


I'm frankly more interesting in that #69 (LG or LT?) but that guy is a Very Athletic Mauling looking player. Very quick out on screens.

But back to Lumsden. I think he could be a Ladell Betts like player, maybe a starter in short spurts, but I don't think he's a Franchise caliber.

He also got a chance with the Packers in 2005 and didn't make it.

Jesse impressed and earned tons of praise throughout East West Shrine but never saw the field in preseason for the Seahawks in 05'. He got hurt early in camp and recovered before a preseason game with Dallas. He was assured by the Seahawks he would get some carries, he never even got past the sidelines. He was cut the next day.
In 06' the Skins signed him and he was reportedly very impressive in the Baltimore-Washington scrimmage and training camp. However, once it came to preseason, he was in for maybe about two plays total. It was pretty clear that Washington had their running back depth chart set long before Lumsden even got there. They had no intention of allowing him to unseat any established Redskins and they barely let him on the field even in the third and fourth games of preseason when everybody gets a shot.

I guess lots of guys get hosed every year but it's not often that someone with his measurables and resume' gets axed without a chance to even showcase himself.

The Ti-Cats have one of the worst lines I've ever seen in professional football. They can't pass block whatsoever.

Franchise caliber? He's good but that would be ridiculous if a franchise back was sitting in Canada (not by choice). I agree with your assessment but even mentioning those words is a stretch.

Big, fast, can cut and can pound the rock. I think he may got a shot as well in the NFL.
At the CFL Combine Testing Darryl Stephenson ran a 4.7 40, benched 225 23 times, 4.41 shuttle, 37 inch vertical, 9'11 1/2 broad jump. Pretty good numbers except for the forty. If he is able to cut that down at all he can be a beast. He is 6'2 225, and I believe broke Jesse Lumsden's records. If I am wrong, he was awfully close to beating them.
Someone might give him a shot with a tryout, but I think these numbers show that he can cut and has agility, and is also an all around athlete.

This video should show you everything. He won the Hec Crieghton in 2006 (Canadian Heisman) and this video shows you his hands, his cuts, power, change of direction and breakway speed. I think he looks like a little better prospect than Jesse Lumsden was.

P.S Check out the run at 3:20.

Right on. If he's could cut it in the NFL, he'd be there. No matter what his color.
