"The Deuce is Loose." Well, at least that's what Rebels fans were shouting at the beginning of the 2000 campaign. McAllister, who was supposed to make a push for the Heisman Trophy, has been plagued again with injuries. Scouts around the NFL are now questioning his durability. Throughout his career at Ole Miss, Deuce has been a bit injury prone. He's battled through back problems, hamstrings, you name it, Deuce has had it.
Standing at 6'1" 220, McAllister combines great size and amazing 4.38/40 speed. His all-around game is better than anyone in this year's draft. He runs with power, and determination every play. He's got good balance, good vision, a great burst, and the ability to make cuts on a dime. Everytime he touches the ball, he's a threat to score. You can't say that about to many RB's, especially in this year's draft.
Deuce is also an amazing receiver. He can line up as a flanker or as the slot man. His soft hands and body control make him an awesome asset for any NFL team. There's always the injury problem though. Can Deuce survive a brutal 16 game NFL schedule? Can he avoid nagging injuries that have slowed him down in college? All of these questions have no answers, but one thing is for sure, and that's Deuce's ability to it all.
He even brings great special team play as a return man. There's nothing offensively he can't do. He's a physical specimen. His body looks like it was sculpted. If not for the injury question, Deuce would be the best all-around player in the entire draft. He'll have to prove that he's durable and tough enough to make it in the pros, but I assure you he's worth a top 5 pick. NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
