What do you do with a power back that gets stood up in the hole? That’s our dilemma of the day with running back Christopher McClendon. McClendon, a prospect out of Division II program Oklahoma Panhandle State University, has the stature (5’ 11”, 220 lb.) to be a solid ball carrier that should grind yards after contact, but he doesn’t. I think I have an answer why.

From the first moment you turn on the game tape of Larry Butler III, inside linebacker from Division II Southern Nazarene University, both strength and flaw are readily apparent. I scouted two games of Butler’s from the 2014 season, and came away with very few questions; I have a feeling that what you see is what you get with Butler, both in a promising and pause-giving way.
