    It's nice to see our guys getting a lot of press time. Good PR.

    He's going to be a beast this year. I think we'll see 900+ yards from him...and a bunch of defenders being dragged down the field

    Dude is a BEAST! I bet if things get dire at DE for us, he could fill in there also!

    Laskey runs like a garbage truck. And I have always meant that in a good way ..... Laskey reminds me a lot of John Riggins. He won't be brought down by arm tackles, will run through people for the hell of it and is a ground pounder.

    Just what a BB should be.

    I think that's a good start Nuke, but he's got a few other assets, as well.

    1. He's extremely quick to and through the hole, that's his biggest asset as a Bback.
    2. He's got good vision and balance but not much wiggle/agility.
    3. On top of that, he's got fairly good speed, though not a burner. I think he's every bit as fast as AA was.
    4. He's not a great blocker, but he's willing to block and he's a hard worker. Most people say blocking is mostly "want to" so I'd look for further improvement in this area.
    5. He's also a good, if not very good, receiver out of the backfield. He runs good routes and can catch (soft hands).

    I watched the Spring game again last night, he looked quicker than I remembered.

    He has the lunch pail carrier work ethic and a great attitudes. Doesn't seem to "take plays off".

    IMO #2 is crucial for our BBack position. Staying on your feet, while finding your way through the trash, is what causes big plays to happen. If he had a little more wiggle, he would be all time good.
