  1. 4.8 YPC is pretty good in the Big Ten, especially for a back in a spread offense like Sheets was.

  2. As a Niner fan, I love that they’re looking at him. He’s a fast all-round back: can catch and run. Not comparing them but remember Roger Craig?

  3. Hey Florio…, with all these kids ‘rising’ on the draft charts.., can you let us know who’s sliding? In Newton’s Laws of NFL Drafting Physics, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, which means for every move up, there has to be a move down. But as far as you’re reporting, there’s 143 potential first round picks, because nobody’s ‘sliding’ yet. C’mon…, don’t make a mockery of Sir Issac,

  4. Rising??? You kidding me? Isn’t he always in and out of serious trouble?

  5. Mr. Wilson … I appreciate you taking my criticism into consideration. How delighted I was when I opened up PFT today to see a headline stating “[Name of Player] Rising On Draft Boards.” Hopefully you have brainstormed multiple replacements for “…On The Rise,” because it would be disappointing to see this phrase endlessly repeated. I have confidence this is not the case.
    Well again, thank you. Florio should give you a couple extra Sprint minutes to use this month, just for the extra effort.
