    Anyone recruited a Jumbo Back in this year's game?

    I just signed an ATH who looks like an RB. 6'2 257, B SPD, B AGI, B-ACC, C+ BTK, C+ STR.

    I really hope he can develop into a nightmare for DBs and puny LBs/DEs.

    Never. I have created a John Clay clone and had fun with him before though - they never seem to run quite like Clay - he was just programmed to be unstoppable.

    In my night owls league, Ohio state has this slayer of DB's... and pretty much anyone that tries to tackle him. He seems to be having a great deal of success. I am sure 6'6" falls forward quite a ways. This is also an 88 overall RS freshman

    I heard a rumor that small height HBs were better, because they have smaller bodies to fit between your blockers. So you are less likely to lose your forward momentum by clipping your player mesh on the offensive lineman. I don't know how they handle collision, could be a cylinder that has a set radius, or the radius could be different for each player base on there size, or it could just use the collision geometry on the runback's and Olinemen's character models.

    This is a little off topic, but has anyone noticed if smaller height HBs and OLs are easier to find holes with? Most of the teams I have played with have greater than 6' RBs so I do not have much basis for comparison.

    I recruited a 6'3 250# ATH who was a B- SPD and B+ BTK, but was only a 67 at HB. Meanwhile, at FB he was a 78 OVR

    Currently have a true freshman HB who is 6' 257lbs. He's a 69 ovr and has been pretty good for my UL-Lafayette team with 10 TDs on the year in the #2 HB spot.

    True Junior RB Tony Bell (Florida Gators 4th Horseman)
    6'3 236lb

    85 Speed
    71 Agility
    99 Acceleration
    91 Strength

    93 Break Tackle
    99 Trucking
    99 Stiff Arm
    88 Carry
    97 Ball Carrier Vision

    He's okay. Not as good as his stats look. He does fall forward quite a bit and that has definitely won me a game or two.

    I absolutley love Big RB's. I am playing with Texas in one of my leagues, and Whaley is a BEAST! Using him is the most fun I have ever had running the ball. He gets hit at the line and still stubles/falls forward for 5+yds.

    I love running with big power backs. I love a back with extreme attributes, either really fast or really strong. this "balanced" stuff doesnt work for me, i want clearly defined strengths to gameplan around

    They would be more effective if the trucking rating and the weight mattered more than they do now. I know jms493 had some great videos with John Clay and they do fall forward a lot. They should be able to run over people more often but nothing is perfect.
