Carson, like Wilds, seems to be a fast straight ahead runner - Carson with more burst, Wilds with more top speed. Davis is slightly slower than Wilds, but shifty, a good cutter, and with better vision. From the film I've seen on Williams, he has excellent vision, very good speed (around 4.40), and also cuts well. There's room for all to get some carries in different situations with the top performer (likely Davis) as the starter. A healthy Wilds would have likely helped Davis avoid some of the injury-related slowdowns this year. Scott's style (shifty and tough) would probably fit in well going forward unless we replace Davis/Wilds with a speedy bruiser in the '15 class. Our OL should also be a factor because of the solid depth we are developing. Tennessee is losing both tackles and a guard.

Carson's been through so much adversity since he's been here. Really hoping it all comes together for him.

Since Marcus and his epic 37 carries for 182 yards and two TDs against Georgia in 2010, our staff seems to govern carries via a work-horse philosophy. The season hopefully just became 1 game longer. With such an outstanding stable of backs, I sincerely hope we consider substantially greater rotation so that our best are fresh when most needed.

No doubt in my mind Shon has the physical talent. Hopefully he can focus, work hard, and be a serious contender for playing time!

Coach Holbrook and SHON have also left the door open for a possible return to baseball in 2015.....

He's quiet, has a BIG heart, and a work ethic....I love our stable of guys for that reason. They arent flashy but GET IT DONE! And the fact that they all feed off of each other with their styles of running makes for a tough opposing team game plan.

At least 3 first round picks in that secondary alone. Shon's got great speed, he'll only get better.

Default Re: Shon Carson to play football only

I believe he has potential, but like others on this board, I want to see him display the ability to "bounce" and to make a cut... and then take off.

I could be wrong, but my sense is that the running backs coach needs to help him "see" the field better and pace himself so that he doesn't slam rapidly into closed holes that need a split second to open.

To me, these are things that CAN be taught, so I am hopeful.

I think all Shon needs is some coaching. That's where spring practice could be huge for him.....I don't think he's been through a spring practice yet. The things like keeping his head up and being more patient are easily corrected.

Considering the fact that Tanner English and Joey Pankake are probably going to be gone after this season and they play the positions Shon can play (OF/IF) it doesn't surprise me that coach Holbrook would want him out there to try to replace one of them.

That would be nice for him, but seeing how well we are recruiting each year, I don't see that happening.

I tend to agree. Often 3rd string backs attempt to make the big play when they finally get a carry. I was impressed with the way Carson turned up field in a hurry and consistently got positive yards. Nothing flashy.

He's a good, solid backup SEC running back. Maybe simply concentrating on football, he can take it the next level.

Glad to see him focus on football. After his first 2 years of injury and finally getting a chance to contribute this year I am very impressed with what I see. I noticed alot that when he is in the game its more than often a passing down. This kid comes in and makes key blocks alot. I remember sands saying that pass pro is very big to him and from what I have seen he is a good blocker. I agree that with coaching over the spring he could get better with keeping his head up and hitting to correct holes. All backs have something special to them and this RB stable could b one of the best in the country if we use them right. I would lokve to see more I formations and pistol sets with a power and speedster in the back field.

We are in good shape for the next couple of years at RB - I think we have 4 that could start at many D1 schools. I am of course very high on Williams, but still yet to see him at the college level - Can't wait to see how things go at RB next year. Go Cocks!
