I think DAT will be great in the NFL but I dont think it will be at RB. I think he'll be a hyper athletic Wes Welker and a kick returner. Give him 3 feet of space, anywhere on the football field, and he's gone. He's better at making jukes and moves while running full speed then any football player i've ever seen.
165 in HS. He weighed in at 178 this last summer and still has room to grow to 185 or so. I think DAT will be a Persey Havin like player in the NFL, or could even be used exclusively as a slot guy.
As for Barner you are wayyy underselling him. He has elite speed and does have some moves. I do agree he needs to work on lower body strength for breaking tackles, but I think he's a half a step slower Reggie Bush type of RB. They are both built very similar and have kind of the same type of running style, though I feel at this point coming out o school, Barner has shown far more willingness to run between the tackles then Reggie did while at SC.
