James is an absolutely electric runner from the last two years of NCAA football. He’s a huge part of the reason why the Oregon Ducks played in a National Championship game in 2010 and has sickening quickness and elusiveness.
He is capable of busting 80-yard runs when it looks like there is nothing their, reminding some of Barry Sanders. While it’s far to early to make any kind of comparison like that, James couldn’t have ended up in a better situation to make it happen.
Granted, he probably would’ve like to have gone higher in the second round, or even in the first, but going to a team that lost the NFC Championship game via fumble on a punt in overtime, well…is there a better situation out there?
I’ll shut up now. Watch the highlights.
