Default Breakaway Speed

Who has breakaway speed at our skill positions? IOW, who is a homerun threat when they touch the ball?

It seems like we haven't had that in a while at USC. Maybe I am just forgetful.

Byrd and Carson come to mind. That may be it.

Ellington might not "break away" but if he gets two steps on someone, not sure they would catch him in the open field.

This.

If you wanted a second tier (Following Byrd - Carson - and '2-step' Ellington) i'd think that Nicky and a '2-step' Shaw may be the only ones we have seen flash horse-race speed in games.

I was watching Carson's highlights from HS and it seemed like he did not have that type of speed. Maybe it was just me.

Byrd...DUH! I forgot about him

Default Re: Breakaway Speed

When Shaw gets through the LBs, he's got break away speed, safeties seem to have trouble catching him whenever that happens.

Shaw has elite white boy speed.

Byrd and maybe Bruce are our speed guys. I would like to see Roland make some plays just to see what sort of speed he has. Vic has good speed.

He doesn't look fast just watching him run but he's definitely a home run threat(pun intended).

D. Byrd is one of the fastest guys in college football. He may be the fastest. If he continues to develop his catching, he could be a home run. Some people are unaware of the touchdowns he saved on special teams. He can run down anybody. The potential is there and Spurrier said that Byrd is working hard on football in track season. He has grown since arriving. Just maybe...

Ellington, Shaw, Byrd, Carson,etc, etc...We probably had more long plays for TD last season than I can remember. Remember the last TD of the year?

The last 2 TD's... or the first TD of that game... We were almost scoring too fast...

Those were long throws though. What the OP is referring to are players who can take a short pass or a handoff and just outrun everyone to the endzone.

In addition to Byrd, Carson, and the incoming Williams, I think Ellington and Roland are gone if they have a step - speed and shiftiness. Adams is unlikely to be caught by a LB or safety. Both Brent and Wilds have good top speed.

What's the difference in whether they can run by a guy and catch a ball or catch a ball and run by a guy. Any of those guys can break it if the blocking doesn't suck.
