Default Does Brandon Wilds remind you of anyone?

I realize I'm older than most on cockytalk by bringing this name up but does Brando Wilds remind anyone else of a pretty good back for us named Thomas Dendy? When I saw Brandon run last night the first thing that came to mind was Thomas Dendy. Food for thought. Go Cocks!

Lattimore

Big back with flat back and good balance. Would love to see him get more carries

I see similarities to both. Wilds is a very good back, along with Davis. We're lucky!

Thomas was smaller....different offense back then....lots more option. Brandon looks more like Marcus....maybe Stanley Pritchett or Troy Hambrick.

Gerome Bettis. A guy I follow on twitter said it and I had to agree with it. He was rumbling, bumbling, stumbling 6 yards at a time with at least 19 Tarholes on his back!

-Crazy legs like like latti
-moves his shoulders like latti
-and has shoulder pads leaning forward like latti

I love seeing mike Davis run and honestly think he is a little better than wilds, but watching wilds run just puts a smile on your face cuz it's like we still get to enjoy a little bit of lattimore out there.

Very similar to Marcus w/ one difference: Marcus would absorb and shed contact (and do so tremendously) but wasn't QUITE as elusive/slippery as Wilds is. Wilds, on the other hand, doesn't shed tackles QUITE as well as Marcus.

Default Re: Does Brandon Wilds remind you of anyone?

I really don't know but if I had to try and compare him, I'd have to say Latti because he (like Latti) doesn't shy away from contact. Davis is powerful, but he is shifty too. To me Brandon isn't quite as shifty, he'll lower is pad level and push the pile. Just like last night, that was impressive. It's hard not to give Mike Davis props but this thread is about Brandon Wilds. I personally like having a 6'2 RB.

Yea that's a good point and good way of putting it.

Instances last night were:
- the spin move in the backfield was like latti.
- one time right at the line of scrimmage he hit someone with his right shoulder pad, bounced half a step back an kept running. Very similar to latti.
-on another run a player grabbed his arm and pulled on it. He just changed direction and kept going.

Latt

I couldn't wait for Wilds to return after seeing him 2 years ago. He runs hard and has power. With Latt on the team, there couldn't be a better rb for him to learn from. I'm also glad they started running in the I formation to let our backs shine.
