From what I've seen, he is developed from a running back standpoint, but still very raw in terms of his physique. He has a good frame to build on, and has at least decent power, though he needs to work on his balance. Doesn't necessarily go down easy but he usually loses his balance after getting hit low. He showed quite a good bit as a Sophomore at 175-185, so I think he'll be able to do a lot more when his frame is more filled out.

If his knee is solid I think he is going to be fine. He has good instincts and i like his burst.

Finally got around to watching his film in earnest. Has truly great burst for his size. Was not expecting that, there may be a lot of WRs his size with similar burst but I guess you don't see them carrying the ball out of the backfield.

Very similar to Ty Isaac, IMO. Not sure which is better. Isaac had a better frame but all kinds of other issues. If Josh comes back 100% he could be a steal. And if he can't develop as a RB he is one heck of an OLB or S prospect... doesn't have blazing top end speed but covers ground really quickly. If he was running a 40, he'd cover yards 5 to 20 really fast.

What's going to differentiate him between being a bust and being an All-American is how much he can bulk up. His gaunt features make that questionable, and he clearly needs to get up to around 230. He doesn't run with great balance or power right now. He's not a violent runner who loves contact and breaks tackles. He needs to become that kind of guy, but he's not just going to elude defenders in college. But I see why we'd want him because even if he doesn't pan out at RB he has great versatility to make an impact elsewhere.

"IE Gaunt Player of the Year" shoe-in! What is wrong here?

This kid is 208-210 verified. He is 6'2" tall.

gaunt adjective \ˈgȯnt, ˈgänt\
: very thin usually because of illness or suffering
: plain and unpleasant in appearance : desolate and gloomy

You either, don't like him; you are worried that the coaching staff is screwing the pooch this year; you don't know what gaunt means; you don't give a seventeen year old that may be a tad more awkward than average a hard time; you still haven't forgiven him for wearing Penn State gear to South Bend, or something else I fail to recognize.

Seriously, I have seen gaunt. Guys coming out of a jungle at 5'10 and 120lbs. That is gaunt. I feel the use of that adjective is a negative indicator as to this kids value per posters on this thread. Not a biggie; there is nothing wrong with that on general principle.

But this kid is an explosive player with a bunch of talent and a high ceiling. I think the sky is the limit in this offense because I believe he has hands, and by filling in to a 210 lb athlete (+30 lbs.,) he has shown he can bulk without gaining bad weight.

Kind of like Jaylon Smith. I saw him play in high school at just over 200lbs. There was no comparison in seeing him last year at 230! As good as he is, he still added a Division 1 bang with that weight; bigger player, just as if not more explosive, (see SC interception.)

This is another kid that has that bulk-ability. As far as the gear, without being condescending or gauche, I think the Pen State gear was not intended to insult.

Oft times we expect everyone we come in contact with to have the same experiential base as we do, including resources and life experiences. Often others do not. I think that another positive with Josh is how far he has come from where and what he started with, and through what (ACL, etc.) he has persevered. I celebrate that with Josh.

What would you say about this kid?

Yep. TJ Yeldon was 6'2" 205 when he signed with Bama. He is doing ok. I am not worried about Adams size.
