Fastest Player in College Football - Adrian Killins

Recommended Posts

What are your thoughts on this kid?  Think he lasts to our 4th round selection?  I would love to add his blazing speed to our backfield.

If Greg Dortch was a RB his name would be Adrian Killens.

Wow, kid is lightening! It’s like they are trying to tackle his shadow.

I prefer Antonio Gibson who can do a lot more and has better size/strength. But in the 6th or as an UDFA I have no problem bringing this kid in and giving him a shot to make the roster. God knows this offense needs more speed and explosiveness. He's got that in spades.

You know Raideraholic will be touting him to the Raiders in the 5th.  :)  I don't think he realizes that Al Davis died a while back.

The guy is 165lbs. and wasn't even invited to the combine. That should tell you all you need too know.

We have two 6th round picks so if he is there we need to grab him.

Greg Dortch wishes he was this fast.  This dude may be the fastest player in college football.  We could use some game breaking speed out of the backfield.

It tells me someone made a mistake and if our scouting dept. does it's job we might just get a steal in the latter rounds or even as an UDFA.

Who would be your NFL comparison? I can't recall any sub 170lb. RB's amounting to anything in the league.

Tyreek Hill - 5’ 9”  listed as 185 lbs; actual playing weight is ~169

Desean Jackson - 5’ 7” listed as 175 lbs; actual playing weight is ~160

Tyrann Mathieu - 5’ 8” listed as 190 lbs; actual playing weight is ~165

Thanks for proving my point by not listing one RB.

He does have amazing speed and doesn't seem to go down on first contact. A move to WR or use him as a gadget player. I'd be ok with a 6th round flyer on him

But he's my size....and if you run him between the tackles in the NFL, you might need a toe tag and a body bag for him lol.

In the nfl he will be a 10 touch per game guy


 

id LOVE to see the jets draft him in the late rounds

He can be a return man/running back.  Can't think anyone off the top of my head, but I don't get caught up in whether you can recall any sub 170lb backs.  It is not impossible that he can't add another 5 or 10 pounds.   There is a first time for everything and in the latter rounds he might be worth a flyer.  Or if he goes undrafted, signed as an UDFA.   Think outside the box, that is how you find diamonds in the rough.

I liked Akeem Hunt.  He kicked around on practice squads for several years.  Aren't the closest answers Darren Sproles and Tarik Cohen?

He is on the Ravens now.  He is more WR than RB in the NFL.  I don't think he's ever had more than 10 carries in season and he has gotten a decent amount of targets.  In actuality, he is nothing more than a return man.

Agreed, hes also no where as fast, just answering who fits the bill as Killin in the NFL.

He's not even listed as a RB, he's listed as WR/Returner and he weighs over 170lbs. Try again.

He was drafted out of college as a RB

Was picked to be a RB-hybrid WR

I get that hes too small to stick as a RB.

You want to split hairs, go ahead.  I dont need to try again

Since you couldn't answer the question with a valid answer maybe you should just keep your mouth shut. It was a very simple question, name one RB under 170lbs. Thomas doesn't fit either of those criteria.

This is like if Trent Cannon didn't fall down after taking two steps.

Yeah, that's what just happened.  

Should have known better than to answer you.  Having a conversation with you is painful.  Youre a total rag

If you had better reading comprehension skills it's really not that hard since no one else does. But you don't.

Whatever makes you feel good about yourself.  

Someone gave you 4 similar sized players.  Go F with him or someone else.

Youre just ragging, moving on.

You have no Fing idea that you started this argument, do you?  I mean your actually this numb? Tell me where I was arguing with anyone. 

You asked a question, I answered it and you got pissy over it instead of just leaving it or disagreeing and moving on.  You just had to be the assclown and not end it.  Keep coming back with snotty remarks.  You just cant stfu and let it end.  I forgot how big a fool you can be here.

You responded to my post, so that would be you. You also didn't answer the question correctly so I called you out on it and as usual you resort to name calling. You're like a child throwing a tantrum yet again because you were proven wrong or just go over the edge. 

Do you want to try this again? Show me ONE sub 170lb. RUNNING BACK in the NFL. That's all I ever made this thread about.....you're the one that injected your usual stupidity and argumentative ways. It's what you do.
