    Not in my eyes. Smith is 5'9'' 180...Holliday is 5'5'' 161... You simply cannot play RB in the NFL at 161lbs. They are both lighting fast, I see Holliday as a punt/kick returner and that ONLY.

    yea all sproles is is pr/kr with a 3rd down back, holliday would be ideal on screen passes and wheel routes

    Hell No! Holliday is 159 lbs and will NEVER, and i repeat, NEVER see action in the backfield and wasnt that great a return guy at LSU. He only got up to 166 for the combine because he is a shrimp.....and even that is too small. He played under 160 during his entire career.

    could u imagine how well the screen and wheel routes would be with this guy, he wouldnt be that effective of a runner but id love him running out the backfield

    No!...he wont ever play out of the backfield in the NFL. He just wont. We get many LSU games here in Vegas and ive watched Holliday since he was a freshman and he never really did much. Even his kick returns for TD's were against the likes of North Texas and Tulane.

    Casserly even said today that McCluster will be a slot WR only in the NFL and to forget about him even being a 3rd down RB.....which is also what ive been saying about him as well and if he isnt going to be a in a backfield at all, you can bet your *** that Holliday isnt.
