    But does he have "quick-twitch athleticism"??

    (sorry-inside joke. whenever someone mentions a highly talented white athlete that has been cheated by the caste system I ask this question. I first saw it in a scouting profile, it was used to criticize a good white defensive back and explain why he had to play safety not corner, "lack of quick-twitch athleticism" is the code phrase more simply stated as- "is not black".)

    Can he block? He may have a shot at the NFL if he bulks up, learns to block and forgets ever wanting to carry the ball again.
