Zeus comparison
Who does his body and running style compare to?

I didnt watch him in high school.
I have a comparison in mind based upon his limited touches in college on the Chubb/Sony/Swift scale. But I'm sure there are better comparisons out there.

re: Zeus comparison
He is his own thing, basically a bulldozer who runs with considerable violence.

Just makes the defender pay, not sure he has great speed.

A little less bully than Chubb a little less zag than sony, but a decent mix

More that Chubb's violence seemed effortless, Zeus is trying to kill the tackler.

Probably closer style to Knowshon than anyone we have had in the last several years. A bit bigger and faster than Knowshon but somewhat comparable.

re: Zeus comparison
I read somewhere that he’s back to his old self. Same power as always but he’s got more wiggle than it seemed last year.

re: Zeus comparison
What I really need to know if whether or not he's better than whoever LSU's guy is this season. And in what ways.

I need this on my desk by end of day.

Thanks.

UGA's best RB is always better than LSU's best RB.

You are welcome.

re: Zeus comparison
I don't really see any of the compairons mentioned honestly. I didn't watch him in HS so all I have to go on is waht we've seen in college but he doesn't seem to really have a lot of wiggle to him and is far more of a bruising straight line runner. I'd compare his style (not talent or abilities thus far) to a better version of Michael Cooper. Or maybe Musa.

I ceratinly don't see any knowshon or sony at this point.

I think that's the best bet til we see more of em. Reminds me a little of Tim Worley with his style...he used to punish folks but I don't think Zeus has Worley's sprinter speed.

He ran more upright than Zeus does but they look similar to me. Zeus didn't exactly show great vision last season. I know he's still getting back to full speed but that shouldn't make his vision bad.

re: Zeus comparison
Would not worry about vision yet. They get over coached when they get to a college program about following blockers and techniques.

Takes them a while for them to adjust.

God no.

Samuel isn't close as far as athletc ability. Samuel was beat out by a walk-on at FB his Sr year and couldn't hack it at LB.

I watched the Arkansas game that Samuels went off in a few nights ago, he wasn't terrible, he had no shake but he could have won the heisman with his production that night.

Big dude had wheels.

That was the highlight of his career and almost all of his yards were on a 80 yards
draw play where he went untouched.

No thank you.

The hilarious part about that play is it wasn’t even a draw play. Arkansas was just not at all expecting us to run a dive play on 3rd and 10
