    This guy reminds me of Harvey Williams. He runs very high ,but i see some potential we'll have to wait and see.

    Yup. Exactly what I was thinking after watching youtube footage. He seems to run very upright. I'm more intrigued by Latavious Maurray. Just my 2 cents.

    I'll readily admit I've been wrong before...But I like Murrays running style...And oh yeah, who'ss that guy playing Qb abd wearing #5...Oh Yeah...That's right..its Blake Bortles, Murrays former teammate at UCF.

    Rashad Jennings, Kory Sheets, and Latavius Murray will be our halfbacks in 2014.

    I wonder if Dmac is reading this. The message is pretty clear....No more DMAC in Oakland.

    Like to see Reece get some H-Back or "Big Back" goal line/short yardage carries this year as well.

    Sheets CFL numbers are a little more impressive when you think about it being a 3 down league. He didn't play much the first few years, so his body hasn't been tore up. He is hungry to get back for sure, He seems to do whatever they ask to be on the field, even move to Canada. I expect we will draft a RB late as well.

    The number everyone should like to see is 0, as in fumbles. He has returned kicks (4/74yds. 18.5yd average), and has even recovered 2 fumbles on defense.

    He does have moves. but how that translates to the faster NFL???

    I'd like to see him utilized the way Carolina uses Tolbert. He's a pretty good comp IMO. I'm extremely excited to have Sheets joining a pretty young backfield. He's a champion, an MVP, and looks like a quality player that we should be getting for a good price. Tough to argue against that move.

    Good Depth behind Jennings & Murray. With the addition of 2 gaurds (Icognito FA & Cyril Richardson 2ndR) our running backs should dominate.

    His age is a concern for guy just trying to get started in the NFL. But on the other hand, he hasn't had much wear and tear.
    To be honest, i dont think he will make the roster unless RM doesn't bring in any competition.

    Lets not forget that Murray's biggest weakness...... he runs completely upright. Sheets looks intriguing. If we get 3 RBs that can be consistent and contribute, we are in a good position - its not that high of a position really unless you get lucky and find a guy like AP, Charles, Mccoy, Lynch

    I think it's apparent that McKenzie doesn't find it prudent to invest significant resources into the RB position. That philosophy is not without reason. I'm absolutely fine with these type of signings.
