Word from many NFL scouts attending is he has been the most impressive RB there so far
"White man you just starting to get the blues" - Rags and Bones, Nomeansno
Sounded like Franklin had an edge in pass protection. Otherwise edge Barner.
Isn't Taylor there too? From Stanford.
Taylor's on the South. I was really impressed with Barner's blocking. He hasn't been afraid to stick his nose in there and compete. I will also say that Franklin has been good too. And, as much as it pains me to say, Poyer has been balling out down in Bama! They have raved about him the past couple days and he deserves it. Poyer is the CB that Trufant thinks he is.
RB Kenjon Barner
Lammey: He’s a willing inside runner but lacks the size and lower body strength to be a pile pusher. Barner is a glider who can change direction without losing much speed. He’s got speed in the open field and can get to top speed in a hurry.
Waldman: I saw him turn the corner on a flat route against a linebacker who had no chance of catching him in the open field after just two steps. If an N.F.L. team can find ways to get him into space, he’ll have value.
Lammey: We didn’t see pass protection, Backs-on-‘Backers drills today, and that is an area where Barner must prove himself if he wants to get on the field as a change of pace back.
I only was able to see the hour of practice that was on TV on Monday, but I thought Barner was the most impressive back there by far in the reps and drills that were shown. I didn't see much of Franklin but there is a small write up on the Pac 12 Blog describing Franklin as impressive.
Yeah, it's funny how editing works. Barner looked perfect and Franklin was terrible in the clips they showed, then I read it was the opposite. Well I didn't read Barner was terrible, just not great.
Exactly. Poyer was another example. He looked great during what I saw on TV and the announcers were very high on him. But the espn write up described him very unfavorably.
