Default Shon Carson Being Wrongly Overlooked by Some Fans

In his freshman season two years ago, Shon Carson came out of the pre-season as the second back. He beat out Kenny Miles, who led the team in rushing the year earlier, and was second on the depth chart to Lattimore. In one pre-season interview during his freshman year, Lattimore said Carson might beat him out for the number one spot. Carson injured his knee in the UGA game and was out for the season.

Last year, he suffered another season ending injury to one of his upper extremities.

In each of those years, before the injuries, coaches were raving about his skills as a back. This year, he is a red shirt softmore and has already moved from the bottom of the RB depth chart to a virtual tie with Wilds and Davis. Yesterday, Spurrier told the illustrious Josh Kendall that Carson could be a 20-25 carry back.

In the SEC Size Matters, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, backs, 6'! 225-30lbs. Brandon Wilds is the only Full Game proven back with three over 100 yards. Mike Davis is a beast. The freshman Williams at 6'1 will be our next best Back.

Carson is about the same size as Davis, same weight as Wilds. Quicker than both. Remember Trent Richardson? Compact, strong, quick? Played in the SEC.

I also remember Trent Richardson broke some records at Bama for weight lifting too. He was a tank running the ball for them.

Default Re: Shon Carson Being Wrongly Overlooked by Some Fans

I've had my fingers crossed for Shon. I hope he has a great season as his injuries have ruined his past 2 years. I fear one more and he is gone for good.


That being said, I think he could be a good surprise.

shon carson is almost the exact same size as trent richardson from the great alabama and he ended up being a top 10 nfl draft pick. also davis and carson are essentially the same size

Mark Ingram was 5-9 215 when he won the Heisman.

Ray Rice, Frank Gore and MJD are around the same size and are having very productive NFL careers.

Really? I'd say this was uncalled for. But, hey, whatever. Also, Spurrier did NOT say Carson could be a 20-25 carry back. He said, "He, he could play 20-25 plays, ya know. He's a good little screen runner too. There's a place for Carson." 20-25 plays is not the same as 20-25 carries.

Default Re: Shon Carson Being Wrongly Overlooked by Some Fans

I wish they would expand his role more than screens and option plays. Give him straight hand offs or zone read plays please.

I think he could really help the offense if his role were expanded outside of situational plays.

He is going to be an excellent compliment to Davis/Wilds this season. He's going to get some carries for sure.

SOS said he thought Carson could handle 20-25 carries a game if he was forced to because of injuries.

Actually, SOS said he could handle 20-25 plays. So theoretically, its possible Carson could get 20 carries, but since we throw the ball about half the time, SOS probably suggested Carson could carry the ball possibly 10-15 times.
