2014 Combine workout: Jerick McKinnon - NFL Videos
I am pretty excited about this kid. Option QB or not, he ran for over 1800 yards in 2012. If he can catch the ball (combine workout looks like he CAN), this kid could be DANGEROUS. I see a Percy Harvin-like talent here.
Official combine 4.41 40 time (and ran a 4.35 in his second attempt!). The 4.41 was tied for 10th fastest at the combine! Also tied for 10th most bench press reps among ALL players!
Among RBs at the combine...
2nd fastest 40
3rd fastest 3 cone drill
2nd best vertical jump
Best bench press (32 reps, 2nd was 26)
4th best 20 yard shuttle
2nd best broad jump

I expect to see him when we absolutely need 2 yards, and the defense we are playing knows we are going to pound it out. I think he could get the needed 1st down regardless, ala Eddie Lacy/Marshawn Lynch style.Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

With a weak-armed QB like Bridgewater, I would have liked to see a shifty RB that could have helped us in the passing game... specifically Dri Archer out of Kent State, who was taken with the very next pick of the draft.
Who knows though, this kid looks like he could be great. It's all a crapshoot at this point.Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

Not sure Bridgewater is considered as having a weak arm. Not a cannon but lots of cannon guys can't hit the broad side of a barn. With Peterson aging and Toby gone, and the guys we have not all that electric, McKinnon might be what we need. If he pans out, great pick. If not, bad pick. Like any other.

Additionally, strong armed QB's rely on arm strength sometime too much see Cutler, Stafford and try and force throws...
