2011 NFL Draft: Roy Helu and Senior Bowl Week's Top Performers
The 2011 NFL Draft is getting more complicated as some players who had previously flown a bit under the radar begin to make a name for themselves in front of the NFL staff and scouts.
One player who did that yesterday was Roy Helu, Jr., the running back out of Nebraska. He put up tremendous numbers as a senior, rushing for 1,245 yards and 11 touchdowns, while averaging an impressive 6.6 yards a carry, but doing it in the Huskers' option offense, he's been a bit overlooked.
Until this week, that is. Helu has impressed onlookers with all phases of his game. His speed and acceleration are both better than scouts had previously noted, and he's shown a maturity in understanding his role even when he doesn't get the ball, willingly laying his body on the line in pass blocking schemes.
Of course, he's still not Nebraska's top prospect this year, but he's certainly stated his case as a value second or third rounder.
