He actually is only a step or 2 behind our faster players.

looked pretty good following Etienne in that 1st play in the pitt game.

I didn't think he was following, I thought he caught up and (kinda sorta) blocked for him.


He's fast once he gets going but he lacks all other traits

of a great runner. He doesn't have the quickness, acceleration, fluidity, or slipperiness.

Exactly. Being a great runner has a lot more to it than just being fast.

This is correct. Lawrence has a high top-end (refer to the Etienne play), but doesn't have much explosion from a standing start - he lumbers before picking up speed. To some degree, you could say this about Usain Bolt, who's behind in nearly every race he starts.

Lawrence also runs fairly straight-up, with a high center of gravity. When he was in high school, and saw a defensive lineman coming at him, he'd often use a clockwise "360 spin move" to get away - he instinctively reverted to this once in this year's playoffs. NFL defensive ends will feast on these two things - Trevor needs to work on running lower, and getting that spin move out of his head.

You do realize that running with the ball slows you

down a lot.

Trevor against Fields, Dixon, Kendrick etc. wouldn’t be close.

He is fast though.

That's one thing people don't have to worry about: Kendrick running with the ball ... he generally drops it before running. ;)
