An absolutely tremendous 3rd Down weapon, DeMarco Murray could easily become one of the most electric Slashers in the Game. He's got an explosive initial Burst, blazing Speed, excellent Lateral Agility, and also commands outstanding Fluidity. Mind you, he does need to continue to work on running lower, avoiding exposure to the hits that've raised health concerns.
He's a solid Blocker and a dangerous Receiver.
In my efforts to organize RB's by their styles, I've invented the terms "Smashers", "Slashers", + "Thrashers" as what I hope will be easy references, respectively, to Power Backs, 3rd Down Backs, and Hybrids. "Tail Back" and "Half Back" are used too interchangeably, and in any case, a 3rd term is need, for there are at least 3 distinct types.
In that vein, DeMarco Murray is clearly a Slasher, and, if he can stay healthy, he should be an exceptional one.
As always, the preceding thoughts were regurgitated, derivative tripe, adding no value whatsoever, while in fact obliterating intelligent thought and offending the spirit of all decent men. You are now stupider for having read it, and are encouraged, in the strongest possible language, never to expose your eyes to this Site again.
