|Can this guy really play in the NFL?|
At Florida Demps returned some kicks, caught a few passes, and was a part time running back as well. But can he actually do any of those things well enough to play for the Pats? I hope he makes the New England roster, and if he does it could be a great story to follow. But, my guess is he won't make much of an impact. Scouts say he has average hands, and he is definitely undersized (5'8" and 185 pounds or so) for an NFL running back. At Florida his yards per carry dropped each year (from 7.8 as a freshman to 5.8 as a senior), plus he hasn't done anything football related since the Gators bowl game last January 2nd. And now he's got less than two weeks to try land himself a spot on the Patriots.
