Knights ~ 6024/224
Processing Speed ~ How Rapidly & Effectively they Read & React to the rapidly changing LandScape in front'f'm
Power ~ How forcefully they Run the Ball
Acceleration ~ I don't give a Rat's Ass about "40" Time. How Quickly do they Hit The Hole & Turn the Corner?
Fluidity ~ How Serpentine he flows through Traffic.
Ricochet ~ How Explosively they Burst out'f their Breaks when they Change Directions
Security ~ How reliably he holds onto the PigSkin
Pass Blocking ~ Can they stay on the field without endangering their QuarterBack's Life?
Pass Receiving ~ Are they a true Dual Threat ~ what I call a FlexBack?
I think that deploying a Feature Back is a ridiculously stupid way to go: You'll get much better results if your HalfBacks aren't constantly battered and bruised. It's the most punishing Position in the entire Game, as evidenced by the notoriously short Shelf Lives of HalfBacks ~ especially Feature Backs.
As such, it makes no sense to me to have less than 3 reasonably capable HalfBacks to share the Load.
After all: That's about 400-500 Tackles they need to absorb, each Year.
Nobody's asking any "Wide Receivers" to absorb 400 Tackles a Year, last I checked!!
And most of those are at the hands of 200 Pound CornerBacks, not 300 Pound Gorillas!!
And as it's quite obviously best for the Team to split up the Carries, it stands to reason that most HalfBacks simply don't warrant 1st Round Investments...with some few notable exceptions!!
Power ~ Adequate.
Acceleration ~ Outstanding.
Ricochet ~ Tremendous explosiveness out'f'is Breaks.
Fluidity ~ Excellent.
Security ~ Extraordinary. Form could use some Work, but his record is phenomenal.
Pass Blocking ~ Exceptional. Superior Form, Range, and Strength.
Pass Receiving ~ Tremendous. Outstanding & Instinctive Router. Great Hands. Tough to Tackle.
I'm afraid he may be a little too Hit or Miss as a Runner, but he's got exceptional Agility and outstanding Speed, and with a little Professional Coaching, he might become extraordinary.
Furthermore, he's already an accomplished Blocker and an outstanding Receiver Prospect. These were developed at Central Florida when he played some Tight End for awhile.
The result is a startlingly complete Package.
Did I mention his 438 Time in the "40"?
At 224 Pounds??
Or that the last 407 Times he's got the Ball ~ in all sorts of different ways ~ he's gone without a single Fumble???
Futhermore, Murrray's remarkable Skill Set means that he could line up as an HalfBack, a FullBack, a WingBack, a SlotBack, a Slot End, or even Split End and Flanker.
This kid, coached right and deployed with imagination, could become an incredibly dangerous Weapon.
