Default C'Bo over Jafar?

The depth chart at RB seemed to be

Jones Jr.
Flemister
Armstrong Or Smith

I wonder if that was because they knew it be a pass protection game or if C'Bo has really jumped Armstrong because of Armstrong's struggles lately?

C'Bo was a guy who we recruited late who had a ton of yards in one of Georgia's lesser known high school levels, but he runs hard, and falls forward.

If thats the case I feel like Jafar will be a slot receiver and a good one heading into next season.

I like what I’ve seen from Smith so I was surprised we haven’t seen more of him. Davis is our only back with home run speed and has good hands but we don’t see him often either. I assume Davis may have trouble in pass pro.

C’bo seems like a tough kid but in reality he should be playing at a place like Duke. As for Armstrong, I think he’s on the outside looking in at slot with Lenzy and Keys. I don’t think he has a future at running back with his soft running.

This lack of a running game will be fine for the last two weeks but I have a feeling it will expose us in the bowl game.

Well Davis is a 4.6 too and bounced from QB to RB to CB back to RB so its most likely a small playbook for him.

I have been saying all season I think Cbo is our best pure runner. Jones is the most complete . I like Cboís burst through the hole, and given the opportunity will take it to the house. He may belong at a place like Duke, but thatís our whole RB corp this year. Armstrong isnít fast enough for receiver, doesnít have the power for rb, good hands , but his lack of pure running negates that a little. Still think Cbo develops into a pretty good #2 for us. A real #2, for when we get a real #1 lol. I love Jones, tough , instinctive runner but against elite teams is just too slow. He would be a great #2 change of pace for a playoff team.
