C.J. Spiller: Another Debate on the Clemson Tiger Great

Well, here we go Seahawk fans with another focus on Clemson running back C.J. Spiller.

But this time I will have film of the "Great One."

I wrote an article about why the Seattle Seahawks should not draft C.J. Spiller with the sixth pick because of the money issue. I received many comments that basically said not to judge a player because of his stats.

Since stats mean nothing to the football world, I thought it would be fun to post a link to youtube.com so that all of you could see the "Great" C.J. Spiller in action. A quick side note on stats, if stats don't mean anything then why do players get inducted into the Hall of Fame?

Before I post this link there are a few quick points I want you all to look at:


A) Watch his "stiff" hips, they are not very fluid.

B) Tell me how many times he has successful runs in the A and B gaps. The A gap is ran between the Center and the Guard. The B gap is ran between the Guard and the Tackle.

C) Just watch how many times he runs to the outside of the O-Line.

D) Watch his hitting power going into contact.

E) Watch how he holds the ball, in the NFL he will get stripped.

After you're done, ask yourself this: Is C.J. Spiller worth $22-30 million guarenteed over 5-6 years? I know that I have already exhausted this idea before, but do you think C.J. Spiller is really the answer in Seattle at No. 6 or just plainly not at all?

Many have said to draft Spiller at six, then draft our future O-Line in the latter rounds. Doesn't this kind of logic defeat the whole idea of rebuilding a franchise?

I would rather have Bryan Bulaga then C.J. Spiller at six, and I have been saying for a while now that Bulaga will not be a top notch Left tackle. 

Besides why draft CJ Spiller when we have this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XLic7BhIkk

I give my thanks to Seahawks Addicts for the inspiration. They have that Forsett link posted, after seeing that at least get a power back not a speed guy and an even faster guy.

Please check out these two links before posting a comment.
