Two Headed Monster

CJ Marshall, Lane College 5-9,220. With his combination of power and speed, this is a gifted player. He is an instinctive runner who finds daylight he can avoid tacklers pretty well and run away from defenders, he’s done that a lot over a productive college career he has the makings of a good pro-style running back.

CJ Marshall Position: RB Height: 5-9 Weight: 220 Hometown: Memphis, Tenn


Willie Matthews, University of Central Arkansas 5-9,220 is a workhorse at RB. He shows the ability to run in between the tackles and pick up the tough yardage. He is built very well and runs hard, and does not go down easily. His acceleration to and through the hole is excellent. Matthews is not just an interior runner though. He shows the ability to turn the corner and make people miss to break off the big run. His hands are also very good and he is a threat out of the backfield.
