New Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach James Saxon addressed the media following the selection of Kent State running back Dri Archer in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft and here are his quotes from the press conference.
“He’s going to add to the running back room very well. He’s going to be able to be a dynamic football player with the ball in his hands.”
“The one think to the kid’s credit is he’s as tough as any kids I’ve been around and he’s going to learn to do a number of different things, and we’re going to try to put him in a position where he’s going to be able to succeed. Whatever way we can find to get this kid the ball or to have him involved in our offense, we’re going to do that as a staff. Todd Haley’s going to do a great job with that and we’re all going to work together to get this guy in the right place.”
“We had him sub four-two. Some scouts had him sub four-two. It doesn’t really matter. It’s part of it. I mean the kid can run. That’s obvious, you can see that on tape. There’s no denying that part of it, but the kid is a special football player like I said with the ball in his hands.”
