I agree that the Jones' ,Jackson,Perry etc.. are better prospects. JP probably isn't even one of the top ten RB's at this point. But, he hasn't been used up in college and has tremendous potential. He is at best a late round pick for us. It would be nice to get a young guy with tremendous potential for our new staff to work with. Not to mention he would only cost $300k or so.
It says in the link below that he ran a 4.3/40 in h.s. and pressed 300lbs. I guess we'll see what he times out at.
I didn't think he was that fast either. :)

Heres the link with his profile:

your ip address gives it away BC :)

I just think that we need too much help on the DL to draft high at RB when there are respectable retreads in FA and there are possibles that could fall to us in the 5th like Payton...

Especially if we give up the 3rd to get Brunell...

Just an interesting note to people who don't know about potential in 5th rounders - Brunell was a 5th rounder :)
