I'm interested to see how this works out. Herron never jumps out at you on the football field, but all of a sudden you look up at the stats and he's always productive, despite some terrible line play at OSU during his tenure. He appears to have very good vision and the ability to cut in/out of cuts quicker than most college running backs I watch. He never appeared to have the best straight line speed on the football field, but I'd rank that skill behind the two I listed above; in that regard he's kind of the anti-Bernard Scott who has great straight line speed, but suffers to recognize and hit holes quickly (although I think he improved on this skill as he got more playing time last year)
Assuming health w/ the other backs, I think the last RB spot either goes to Scott or Herron. Of course in the NFL, especially w/ running backs, you can't really assume health.
