    Yes, it was brutal. It doesn't change the fact that Jahvid Best is the fastest running back in the draft. His draft positon is going to drop because of his past injuries. Team this guy up with Toby Gerhart and he won't be the goal line back.
    Anyone who's watched Cal football knows that Jahvid Best is a dynamic game-changing back. He'll be a star in the NFL, no matter which team he goes to.

    There was no need to go airborn. He'd better learn that real quick.

    The question is for how long. Those head injuries add up really fast. He is very good rb. But can he stay healthy.

    Westbrook is a good example. 2 years ago, he was a top 5 back. The concussions started adding up, and his career is just about over. And with every concussion, the effect of each of them gets worse and worse.

    He was the #3 RB in the NFL in 07 with over 1300 yards and nearly 5 yards a carry and another 700 yards receiving. Now, the concissions may force him into early retirement

    He would be DEAD if he tried that in the NFL! Imagine an NFL LB zoning in on him? He wouldn't get up! :dead:

    Yes he's dynamic. Yes he ran the fastest 40 of the rb's.

    Now go look at where he ranked in agility drills like the shuttles & explosion drills like the broad/vertical jumps.

    He's a very good back - you can see that from game tape. Is he worth what he'll likely cost in the draft, at least for us? Much more debatable, IMO.

    I like him alot! I like his ability to cut and burst. He looks like he protects the ball well and can he catch the ball? I think he will be a good NFL player.
