Nobody is talking career trajectory. The only comparison here is both players started as lowly regarded running backs one of which went from that lowly status to start. This was pointed out to you when you made your above quoted statement.
That doesn't work. You can't compare players and then ignore what happened in the career of the player you mention.
When you compare a player to another you compare the entirety of their career whether you want to or not.
TD being obscure and then leap frogging others to make the roster and have meaningful playing time is rare for a UDFA to do.
Even rarer for one team to do it more than once.

If you wanted to say you had faith in him to become a player for us that's one thing.
But to mention TD and then attempt to qualify it as a comparison in situation only when they're not similar it not feasible.
