Not sure what forum to post in but don't u think Mr. President is a lock stud in the NFL...comparable "can't miss" status like King Felix?


I started this thread on Sept 17th...looks like I was right...ey fellas?

Nope. He will be a dante hall type player. too small to be an nfl back. He can outrun everyone in college but he wont be able to do that in the nfl. Everyone is fast in the nfl.

He is too small to be a can't miss running back and I don't believe he has the skills to play WR in the NFL either. Reggie Bush will = Warrick Dunn, which isn't a bad thing.

Well I don't think he's comparable to King Felix in baseball but I disagree he's too small to play RB. There are a lot of RB's smaller than he is...6'0 200 may be a little on the light side but he will likely gain a few pounds. The only question for him is whether he can handle 20 carries a game and run between the tackles. Neither he has done very much.

People, Curtis Martin is 5'10", 205. Priest Holmes is 5'9", 210. I love these myopic observations that Bush is "too small" to be an NFL back. He is incredibly shifty and elusive and will be a superstar at the next level.

If Reggie Bush is really 6'0" 200lbs as was listed above, then there's a HUGE difference between 6'0"/200 and 5'9"/210 in terms of actual bulk.

Someone 6'0" that's the same size as Priest would have to weigh over 235lbs. to have the same "bulk" as Priest.

if he wants to be an NFL back then he needs to get a whole lot bigger.

The new age back now a days theyre looking for is a Ronnie Brown or Jamal Lewis. Reggie needs to get BIG!
