Okay you got me. I really want to draft a running back and I have a real affection for those SEC running backs.
Can you blame me – there’s a ton of good ones. My favorites are the cleanup types. They are like the deadly UltraCleaner that I release on unsuspecting planets to seal the deal. Better not get in its’ path…
The Dolphins can use a running back like Bo Scarbrough that way – let Bo finish the deal!
The Positives: Over 1500 yards in his college career, Alabama used Scarborough to weaken SEC defenses, which is no easy task and he rushed for 5.7 yards a carry while wearing those defenses down.
Scarborough is 6’1, 232 pounds – he is punishing runner who runs with a very physical style of running – maybe more like a bulldozer at times. Scarborough is one of those runners who beats a team into submission to the point where he ends up with an eye opening game. In 2016 against Washington, he ran for 180 yards on 19 carries just punishing the Huskies on every carry.
The Negatives: More often than not, Scarborough is taking the chunks his offensive line is giving him. He is a north and south runner and not exactly a guy who creates his own yards.
He didn’t have a lot of catches at Alabama, but frankly, the Crimson Tide doesn’t use running backs that way. Speaking of which, you can’t look past the Tide’s checkered history with running backs in the NFL.
The Alien Dust: If the Dolphins find themselves without a running back in day 3, Scarbrough may be a guy worth considering. He can be the big pounding back that the Dolphins need.
I also think Scarbrough is an asset in the passing game, sure he didn’t catch the ball a lot but he has the skills – and he’s really a pretty good blocker too. With Drake and Gore, Scarbrough fits well with this team.
Bo Scarbrough is an UltraCleaner – get out of his way!
