So why have I, a typical NFL fan, never seen him on the mock drafts I read?

Oh, and a couple of other things: Despite his absurd touchdown rate (one for every 15 carries), he was benched so often that he finished third on the team in carries in his senior year. He also broke his leg and tore his ACL during his college career.
