We will see if Drew can carry the ball 20 times a game. I don't think he is capable of that in a 16 game regular season.

hahahahha......good one!

Though he wasn't the starter, he got a lot of carries anyway. Just because he's short doesn't mean he can't carry the ball a lot. He's got good amount of weight on him......he's fast and powerful.

Anyways, the NFL is more and more becoming a two back system. So it looks like Jaguars will take a change of pass running back in the draft to compliment MJD!!!!

Congrats to MJD.
