    He is the top senior RB for the 2008 Draft Class.
    Agree he is good I'm not saying he only plays well against bad D's I'm just said it was ND.

    True, guess we'll find out more about him as the season progresses.

    From what I saw 10 min or so he did look good. But Notre Dame's D isn't that good.

    DOB: 11/20/84
    Injury history: Average

    Inside Runner:
    - Gets through the hole quickly
    - Shows good vision when picking lanes
    - Possesses above average leg strength
    - Patient, lets things develop in front of him
    - Protects the ball well when he runs inside

    Outside Runner:
    - Choice only has average speed to the outside
    - Shows the ability to cut and bounce outside
    - Only an average threat running the ball outside the tackles

    Elusive Runner:
    - Above average in terms of making defenders miss
    - Possesses good change of direction skills
    - Displays excellent vision as a runner
    - Won't do much in terms of improvisation

    Power Runner:
    - Shows very good balance as a runner
    - Capable of breaking tackles without much problem
    - Does a good job of falling forward after contact
    - Struggles to significantly push the pile once engaged
    - Good body for an power runner

    - Physical and aggressive
    - Doesn't take great angles when blocking
    - Fine knee bend when blocking
    - Good blocking potential, but inconsistent right now

    Hands / Route Running:
    - He's never been a major threat out of the backfield
    - Not much of a fumbler
    - Hasn't shown natural receiving skills

    - Shows no problems taking hits
    - Tough kid
    - Can stay in the game and be a workhorse

    Running Style:
    - Pad level can get a little high
    - Choice has a slashing running style
    - Doesn't have breakaway speed, but it's good enough

    Overall: Choice is one of the more overlooked running backs in the country. He's shown good statistical progression through-out his career and looks to have nice potential at the next level. It's unlikely that he's ever going to be an elite runner at the NFL level, but there's no reason he can't be an above average #1 or very good #2 back in the pros. He appears to be a first day guy right now, with the most likely outcome being somewhere after the middle of the second frame.
