Representing the Buffalo Bills, ArrowDread with the 41st pick in Arrowhead Pride's 2012 NFL mock draft...
Strengths: Olympic speed. Can run, catch, return kicks. Always threat to score.
Weaknesses: Fear of Roller Coasters. Jell-o elbow.
Overrated comparison: Barry Sanders
Underrated comparison: Dontrell Savage
Just Right comparison: Brian Westbrook.
Arrests: Arrested on charges of domestic violence against an x-girlfriend. Pleaded guilty to physical harassment. In his defense, THAT B*TCH WUZ CRAZY!!!
Good deed that offsets Right 53 concerns: Court-madated community service???
Loved by: Ducks fans. Nike. Little people. Degenerate gamblers. Those who believe college athletes should be paid.
Hated by: Opposing defenders. X-girlfriends.
Why Buffalo will draft him: Chan Gailey. The man who drafted Jamaal Charles covets speed and versatility. James is the most explosive player in the draft. Chan with his love for the razzle-dazzle cannot resist. Guy scored points with Thigpen , for Christ's sake. Chan gets a re-do after whiffing on Spiller (note: You don't draft an RB round 1!) Plus, Buffalo has history of questionable picks.
Why Buffalo needs to draft him: Gronk and Hernandez in NE, Reggie Bush in Miami, Tebow in NY. In the AFC East, you need to have unique and creative ways to score. Is LMJ's 5'8-195lbs really any different than JC's 5'11-199lbs? Buffalo can improve passing game with a RB.
Overrated outlook: Breaks NFL rushing record, wins multiple Super Bowls.
Underrated outlook: "He's too small"- Dontrell Savage.
Just Right outlook: Frequent appearances on highlight reels. Solid contributor but he's no Sproles.
