Spiller is not going to be the star so many make him out to be. i see a poor man's Reggie Bush or a Tatum Bell when i see Spiller.

I can see Wunderlic for some positions but, for others, I can handle a stupid SOB as long as they can run like Adrian Peterson or hit like Brian Uhrlacher.

I don't see the Bell comparison, outside of the speed. Tatum was a straight-line runner with no wiggle and poor hands. He couldn't get into open space to take advantage of that speed. Spiller has the ability to make people miss and is a receiving threat, providing more versatility and more opportunities for a creative OC to get him out into space and utilize that speed.

The RB position is a lot more complicated than that.

If a guy can run for an 80 yd TD who cares if he scores a 10 on Wonderlic.

Just call him Black Forrest Spiller
