Another Running Back??

by: Michael Steffes

The Seahawks are using one for their alloted visits on a lesser known running back, Jackson's State's Lavarus Giles. This is according to Chris Dunfee at NFL Draft Giles is also meeting with the Patriots.

He seems to be off the radar of a lot of the draft sites. He did work out well at the Jackson St pro day, however, in looking at last years stats, he really didn't get a chance until the last two games of the season. He responded with over 100 yards and 2 TD's in each game.

Giles was originally recruited by Ole Miss, but then switched his commitment to Alabama at the last second. There was a cloud of suspicion around his recruiting which eventually led to him leaving Alabama and playing at Divison II Jackson St. END
