Straight ahead speed can be Overated. As long as he can find holes , has wiggle it's good. I just hope he doesn't drop his head and run into piles.
Hopefully the oline can get a push on 3rd and short. I haven't them as consistently able to do thatI agree. Neither Rex Burkhead nor Ameer Abdullah had sprinter speed but they could make people miss and get yards when it didn't look like there was any room to run. We don't need Stepp to be a breakaway threat. We just need him to consistently get 4-6 yards a carry, and be able to move the pile on those third and short situations.
