Jahvid                         Best
A second-team All-Pac-10 member in 2009...First-team All-Pac-10 choice as a sophomore and freshman (special teams)...Finished his career among Cal's all-time leaders in 200-yard rushing games (three), rushing touchdowns (29), rushing yardage (2,668), all-purpose running (4,045) and scoring (210)...Led the Pac-10 with 1,580 rushing yards as a sophomore...Missed the final four games of the 2009 campaign after sustaining a concussion and back injury on a touchdown run...Also sat out three games in 2007 due to a hip injury...One of the most explosive playmakers in the draft...Blazing speed and dangerous in the open field...Quick and elusive...Soft hands...Special teams star...Durability is a serious concern...Lacks size and strength to carry the load at the NFL level...Lions hope they found their new feature back with the selection of Best.
