Gerhart is a stud. Shorter than you would think when you meet him, nice as can be, but he turns into a running machine out there. He is talented and I think people are beginning to see that outside of Adrian's shadow.
I think that Toby is a VERY solid second back and would be a serviceable No. 1 back. I don't know if he is a game changer ... but a solid guy to fall back on. Probably a legit 1,000-1,100 yard rusher as a No. 1 back.
I am not that worried about having him out there if AD is not ready to go. The difference between him and AD though is quite a gap ... and I think it would be very difficult to overcome not having a playmaker like AD for a long period of time.
