@Walter I guess you don't remember the miracle in the Meadowlands. You take the easy TD there where all he had to do was pick up the ball on the ground and scoot 5 yards into the endzone and one fluke play of bobbled kneel down is not going to make you lose. Just me but I will take the 2 score lead where no giant mistake will kill you with a 6 point lead.
Patient back who will set up a lineman when given chance
Can pound it between the tackles
Intriguing upside if stars align (change of scheme and conditioning)
Looks overweight - conditioning may be an issue
Just above average speed
No second gear in open field
Shys from contact
Not as powerful a runner as you'd think
Questionable receiver out of backfield
Not a game-breaker in a pro scheme
Unimpressive moves in space to make defenders miss
Doesn't have much elusiveness
Lacks experience in a more conventional running scheme
Highly difficult evaluation
Summary: I want to like Dwyer, but when you combine that he looks out of shape with bad tape, I have a hard time getting behind him. Since early in the season, I have felt he is an overrated prospect. The option scheme limits the evaluation because he is in the three-point stance four yards behind the line of scrimmage (LOS) as opposed to a two-point stance seven yards behind the LOS. I don't see an impressive athlete on tape, but if a team can get him in good condition, he might look like a completely different back in a north-south running scheme. He's the only back in this class that I think has the upside to be a No. 1 in the NFL, but he would certainly be a gamble in the second round.
Player Comparison: Tim Hightower. Hightower is a better pass catcher, but from an athleticism and size standpoint, these players match up.
