Brian Leonard has HOPS

Posted on: August 13, 2008 12:41 am

Has anybody seen this guy leave his feet? He has done it twice in the NFL to my knowledge. I have never seen anything like it. I know theres guys who can jump as high as him, but know one tries to use it as a move avoid contact like he does. Sure, guy occasionally leap to dive over a defender at the goaline, but not like this.

"He's a very, very underrated player...he's the best running back I've played against since I've been in college." "That combination of power and speed is amazing. Some of the runs he makes in the open field, he can cut like a tailback. He jumps over safeties when they try and cut him, but then he runs over linebackers and defensive linemen. His combination of power and speed just makes him the best at what he does."

-Former Pitt and current Washington Redskins LB HB Blades.

Leonard was an All American in college and will get his chance this year at fullback for the Rams. So watch out, He could be jumping over your team one day.
