Devine Isn’t Just Next, He’s Better

Noel Devine isn’t just Slaton’s replacement, he’s a better version of the former Heismann hopeful.  I believe Devine is more explosive and, importantly, better at shaking tackles.  Something Steve stunk at.  A lot of people have compared Devine to Barry Sanders, but I’m having a difficult time doing so.  Especially since Barry only played running back for a half dozen games in high school and was a starter in his senior year only in college.  Basically, I have no statistical point of reference.  Devine certainly seems to have the whole package, I’m interested to see him put on 20 pounds and see if the results still stay the same.  Can anybody draw a convincing comparison between Devine and Sanders?
