I take your point. He is a very talented rb. No doubt. Does he have everything to be a 3 down back, absolutely. He has been great in the preseason.
I’m going to make a few points for conversation and not to be combative:
-J Jones is very intelligent, strategic, and purposeful: his usage of Pollard in the preseason could be for multiple reasons. Show Zeke “we have your replacement and hes awesome”, get him some NFL experience, it could be a stalking horse too… the man is impressive.
-College is college, preseason is preseason, the NFL regular season is something else altogether.
-There have been a lot of promising players from college that dont live up to their potential
I think he will be the lead back and I hope he has a monster first game.
