I am not saying this ... but according to this writer from Ohio's Canton Rep. (who follows the Cleveland Browns), MJD just may be the answer to the question posed above:
To that, 5-foot-6½ Maurice Drew might retort, "I am standing."
The speedy Drew's height will keep him out of the first round of the April 29 NFL Draft. His talents, which have drawn comparisons to Sanders, make him an intriguing Browns option after Round 1.
The Browns see Drew offering an unnerving contrast to Reuben Droughns, whom they want to keep fresh with periodic rest.
As for Sanders, Drew does borrow from the 5-foot-8 Hall of Famer, but ...
"I think I'm more of a power runner than Barry Sanders," Drew says. "He's a shifty back ... very fast. I know with my talents I've got to be able to run through people to get the job done.
"I can run, catch, block, return ... basically anything you want. I'll make plays for you."
Drew, well built and weighing 207 pounds at the NFL Combine, carried a pretty big load at UCLA, leading the Bruins in rushing the last three years.
Also found this cool MJD video from the NFL combine (thank you YouTube):
We will miss MJD's explosive playmaking next year ... badly. He alone was responsible for that miraculous win against Cal at the Rose Bowl. Markey and co. will have huge shoes to fill next year.
