Newcomer C.J. Gable looks to have displaced last year's rookie sensation, Chevon Walker, as the starting tailback for the Ticats. The USC product is a big body who can run between the tackles and outside while also catching balls out of the backfield and picking up the blitz (something Walker struggled with.)
The only thing Gable doesn't have is Walker's breakaway speed and they'll get that from Lindsey Lamar, who will be featured in some offensive sets, while also serving as the team's primary kick returner.
At fullback, rookie John Delahunt has been a revelation at training camp — a 6-foot-3, 243-pounder who likes to mix it up with the, big boys but can also catch passes in the open field. He'll see time as a tight end as well.[/b]
