Well, it doesn't happen often - but Brooksie got bamboozled. I came across Lamical (pronounced la-MIKE-ull) Perine's tape and came away very, very impressed. I was instantly thinking late day 2 to day 3 pick. I was thinking that if we cannot land LJ Scott of Michigan State - Lamical would be another option that would fit for the same reason I was campaigning for LJ. So I went looking for where I could find his draft projection. I could not find one. Uh oh. Does Lamical have off the field issues so back that teams have removed him from their boards? Still looking, my search came to an abrupt end when I saw a tweet where I saw Lamical had decided to return to Gainesville for his senior season. Whew.
But man oh man, I let my mind wander. I saw the Gator jersey. I saw number 22. I saw a smaller, stockier back. I saw the shiftier moves with speed. I saw a dominant left hand while carrying the ball. I thought "I've seen that back before........"
To find that answer, all I had to do was drive 20 minutes south, enter the big building, and research "NFL career rushing yards leaders" and there is my answer - Emmitt Smith.
Keep an eye on this kid for next season.
