That said, I don't think James has an issue with vision. I'd be surprised if he's incapable of running inside.
It is exactly the point. There are so many guys like James who will try to bounce everything outside no matter the situation. It has nothing to do with vision. It has everything to do with committing to running between the tackles, put your body at risk, and make plays from there.

That's the difference between Reggie Bush and Chris Johnson. Bush wants to take everything outside and Johnson is perfectly willing to go between the tackles and then kill people with his speed.

No, it's not just the heart to run it inside. You need the vision to be able to do it effectively.

And my point is that we had no more idea about Stewart's commitment than we do about James'.

Realistically how fast do you think he'll run? I'm watching him right now and he looks like a 4.45 - 4.5. Gets caught quite a bit.

He's a good prospect and will fit well in the new era NFL. He is a scat back that can burn defenses a couple times a game. You need to split up his carries, but that's what you need to do now in the NFL. Running backs should be looked at as wide receivers now. You get 2 starters and depth to do the grunt work. Another similarity: if you get 2 absolute studs, it usually doesn't work out because you can't get enough production out of both to justify the investment. Teams have success with guys who have decent talent that fit their system and spreading the ball around. Everything I said is true for both positions.

Right now if he entered he would be a 3rd or 4th pick, good decision. Could be the Heisman fav next year and will get alot of hype

LMJ was playing with an injury in the OSU game, sprained ankle, that hampered his performance, specifically his speed.

LMJ is plenty fast as evidenced by his fifth place finish in the 100 meters in the pac-ten track and field championships.

i think scheme matters for him because oregon is all inside outside zone with some wrinkles. He needs to go to a team where he can be a change of pace guy on a team that has zone blocking schemes.

I'm bringing this thread back.

James is going to be a steal in the second round. His vision is outstanding, hes nifty behind lineman and he, even at 5-9 and 195, can still run effectively between the tackles. The one characteristic that James has is the ability to spin and bend in order to fall forward to gain an extra yard or two, which is a characteristic that all quality backs need. I'm hoping to see an explosive team such as the Packers, Patriots or Lions pick him up in the 2nd.

LMJ is my No. 12 RB at this point. If he constantly runs for the sidelines in college, how is he going to survive as a pro? I'm not on board with him at all.
