Buckle up and get ready to tackle Mississippi State running back LaDarius Perkins on the College2Pro.com Players Platform Show. LaDarius Perkins is compact runner with vision, patience, and power. Modest production in 2012, rushing for 1,024 yards on 205 carries and catching 19 passes for 160 yards. Reminds me a bit of Christine Michaels of the Seattle Seahawks. Michaels was ranked third on my board last season. Perkins will make his draft push once the season ends. Once team can see him up close and watch him perform I believe he will gain momentum. Very talented running back. Remember the Bulldogs don't get much love for their running backs at draft time. Vick Ballard was drafted in the fifth round and earned the starting job in Indianapolis as a rookie. Two undrafted running backs Brandon Bolden (New England Patriots) and BenJarvus Green-Ellis have made NFL rosters. In the case of Green-Ellis a 1,000 yard rusher.
Chandler Jones impresses at East West Shrine Game. NFL pedigree, his father Mike (Jones) played five years in the league. Reminds me of Antonio Brown maximizing every inch to gain as much many yards after the catch as possible. Jones compares his own style to Denver Broncos Wes Welker, although nine of ten people would think DeSean Jackson because of his size and speed. Skinny and slight build. Looks natural at the position. Smooth and fluid in his routes and catching the football. A staple in college football since 1925, the game has consistently proven to be a launch pad for players seeking professional careers in the NFL. The East-West Shrine Game is the longest running college all-star game in the country. More than 100 players from the 88th East-West Shrine Game signed with professional football teams in 2013. On average, more than 275 East-West Shrine Game alumni are on NFL rosters each year.
