Seems that long, but really not

Remember Smoke had 940 yards rushing on 187 carries and another 52 catches for 400 yards receiving in 2016. That said he didn't have a QB to really run the offense he wants. And the numbers have gone down since that year for the running backs at least in the running game.

I still believe there is a big role for a running back in this offense. Someone like Mizzell or OZ, who started out as a running back. I'm actually a little disappointed UVA hasn't been able to recruit someone else like them. I am hoping Walker will be a blend or mix of the two if he blossoms this off-season
