Should be fun to see Redd in the slot once in a while.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- When Penn State running back Silas Redd sat down to watch Super Bowl XLVI, he had two goals in mind. 1. Go Giants! 2. Study th
I would like to see him get up to 215... Hopefully he puts on a little more good weight in the offseason... But I DEF love the idea of splitting him out at times... He is a weapon that we need to use in any way possible...
WE ARE! And we will always be...
ever since royster bulked up for his senior season and lost a step i find that im weary of backs trying to put on weight so they can handle more carries..
Royster got fat and put on too much. Hence why I said GOOD weight... If redd is now 205-07, he can get to 212-215 no problem and still keep his explosion. His body is still developing as well. Kid isnt even 21 yet...

Lol, Royster "bulking up" was eating three squares of Chiptole a day.
Like this quote.
"For anyone that has aspirations to go to the next league, this is the offense you want to be in."
It's a true statement though. O'Brien is bringing a pro style offense to PSU. It will help this program attract high end offensive talent. Hopefully guys develop while their here too and make themselves known in the pros too.

With consideration for the complexity of the offense and the ability shown so far by the QB position... I'm gonna predict a gigantic season for Silas... I know... not too short of a limb I'm going out on... but
He'll always get his carries... and the depth behind him is pretty unproven.
And of all the receivers, only Brown has some legit experience (unless D Smith is available but I wasn't enamored with his field time either)... I can see a lot of check downs to Silas out of the backfield... lots of delayed screens or option routes after blocking...
Could be some huge numbers for him this year with so many touches.
I disagree, I think 205 is a good weight for Silas. I feel like him playing around 210 made I'm lose some of his ability to get around people. Silas is a real strong player, however his biggest weakness is his lack of real top end closing speed. We he needs to play shiftier this season to help compensate. Kids got NFL talent though.
