Thoughts from The Three Stars
David: Singleton has long been my favorite RB target on FSU’s board for this cycle and he’ll fit in to the rotation very well. He has excellent shiftiness and long speed but also has no problem lowering his shoulder and getting physical.
Josh: There’s a reason they call him “Sweet Feet” — check the tape.
Tim: Singleton will fit nicely in the FSU running back stable. His breakaway speed makes him a threat everyone he touches the ball.
