The jumbo athlete: Harold Joineruncommitted

I don't know if he stays at running back but Joiner is elite at something. He's 6-foot-3, 218 pounds and he clocked in the 4.4 range in the 40 on college clocks last summer. He had the kind of season this fall to make that size and speed relevant. With big backs like Derrick Henry, Jalen Hurd and Bo Scarbrogh all finding success on the next level, there may be a role for a guy like Joiner in the backfield. There's definitely a role for him somewhere.

^^^^^^I read a headline that he ran a 4.34 forty at a camp IIRC. 

Maybe in shorts on artificial turf with hurricane force winds at his back. But he does not have THAT much game speed. Unless those DBs are Usain Bolt. 

I'm not knocking the kid... At all. Like I said in my original post, I hope we make this kid priority 1.

Then I dunno. But comparing his film to KJ, KJ was slashing about out running everything on the field. Granted it's not the same level of competition, but watch his film. It's not uncommon for him to be caught from behind. Even on the very first run of his highlights... True its a long TD run, but if the play is 5 yards longer, he doesn't score. At least 2 DBs catch up to him. That my friend is not 4.4 game speed unless those DBs are playing with 4.20 game speed. 

Again, NOT knocking him. I want him. As much as anyone in the class. He could be GREAT here.

imagine how another year of high school will fill out his frame some....you are just seeing his junior film.  Then add the off season and a freshman year.  He will remind me of ....who is that guy that played for us with Cadillac and Brown and ended up with the Giants for several years?  Big back with nimble feet.  He could be something very very special his soph year at Running Back U.

yup.  Thanks    A unique back who got lost in the shuffle I think, but there is only one ball.... Joiner could develop into such a back.

He won't be Brandon Jacobs big IMO.
