No, this article is not about how LaMichael James won't succeed in the NFL. On the contrary, most of us who have watched James perform for years believe he will not only get opportunities in his rookie year with the 49'ers, we expect him to get close to 1,000 yards rushing and be a spark in the Niners potent offense.
I'm looking forward to watching LaMike on Sundays this fall, but it got me thinking about current players on the Ducks' roster. Who will succeed in the NFL and who will become an asterisk?
I want to talk about five players—and I want to be perfectly clear that I love each of them and expect them to have banner years for the Ducks in 2012—who will have trouble being successful in the NFL.
I think they will all have a shot at being drafted, but for various reasons, may find the going tough. See if you agree.
