He doesn't get much hype, but every time I watch the Gators he always looks like he knows how to run. He gets tough yards, holds onto the ball, and can make a big play too.

I've watched him a couple times this year and last year. Think he could be a good pro back?

I think he looks like he has enough positives that would transfer to the pros. Florida's QB's have been ok, so it's not like opposing defenses are worried about that and ignoring the run. He ran well against LSU--not dominant, but that's about as pro-level of a defense as it gets.

I'm not one of the draft/prospect gurus here, so I defer to their opinion if they say otherwise. The Gators are my favorite team and I watch a lot of SEC football, but I'm usually not over-the-top with thinking every Gator will do well in the NFL. Since the mid-90's when I started following them here's the list of guys I REALLY wanted the Colts to draft:

Jevon Kearse
Mike Peterson (YEAH!)
Reggie Nelson (Safety)
Mike Gillislee (RB)
Vernon Hargreaves III

...ok and Danny Wuerffel as a backup QB , but only because I was a goofy kid who was excited that he won the national championship with them.

Everything I've seen of Edwards-Helaire makes me want the Colts to draft him. He seems pretty complete and is a very tough runner.

If the line blocks like it can there are many backs that would be fine. Use high picks on lineman-offense and defense.

Perine, while may never be the fastest guy on the field. He makes guys miss and doesnt go down easy when contact is made.

Yeah he has good hands also. Low center of gravity, good short area quickness. LSU always seems to have good backs. You could likely get him in later rounds.

Etienne is having a great year and has a forced missed tackle on half his rushing attempts which is incredible. Zach Moss is right behind him at almost half. I think either would be a nice addition. Some donít like Etienne, but I think he suffers from over analysis bc he has been around awhile.
