I ran into Alexander a the week before finals and got to sit down and talk with him about the whole Draft process. It was really cool and interesting to hear. He is a real stand up guy. I had met him before, maybe a year ago, and I went to introduce myself and he remembered my name...pretty sweet. I wish him nothing but the absolute best.
Obviously, I am very biased, but I would take A-Rob over many of the backs rated ahead of him.
First thing that he's got to do is secure an invite to the combine. If he can do that, it all comes down to the 40 time. If he can run in the 4.4s, he'll be drafted. If he runs a 4.55+, he probably won't. It will be interesting to see if ARob, Lamaak, Sims and Franklin can get that combine invite. Arnaud won't get that opportunity due to his injury...it came at a really bad time because I don't know if he'll be ready for camp even if he gets an invite somewhere.
A-rob is a great guy and I'm confident that he'll at least get into a camp next summer and I give him pretty good odds at making a roster due to the fact that he is a complete back. You can count on him to block or catch just as much as you can count on him to run.
He's a great reciever out of the backfield. I know Minnesota could use him. They should have drafted a guy like Arob last year instead of Gerhart.
I'll take someone like Gerhart over A-Rob every single time. You're in deep **** if your running back goes down and you're counting on A-Rob as your feature back. Gerhart at least can be a serviceable back.
