Sure seems like it! The staff has a new tool that let's them know when a player hits a speed of 20+ MPH. Taggart said Ford is a mainstay with that buzzer. Taggart laughed as he added, "Every once in a while a defensive player will hit that speed as well, but that's mainly because they're chasing Johnny!"

All we can hope for is that Johnny Ford uses the strong spring to his advantage when the games count. We have no idea what defense he's running against or who's blocking for him, but speed is speed. Malcolm Davidson was the most explosive back in fall camp two years ago regardless of what unit he took snaps with and look how dominant he was when healthy that year.

I am encouraged by Ford among all the newcomers as he is the one that has put up stats in games. He has more career yds than all of our running backs in a better conference. He can be a complement and change of pace to malcolm davidson.

I miss him at USF already. He had a few maturity issues, but I think he has learned his lesson. I can tell you that he is a impact player and should get you at least 1 touchdown per game

If McCammon and Davidson would stay healthy, I’d agree. But I will say the group is perhaps the most talented with the O-Line being the most experienced. The WR group should be better with Mitchell back to compliment TJ Chase. It will all come down to QB play. Hopefully Tronti and Posey can show some maturity while MJJ develops. Would be awesome to see Tronti go all Graham Wilbert 2012 though I believe Posey is the more dynamic option with a higher ceiling

I'm tempering my expectations for John Mitchell just because of how many injuries he's had and that he's coming off a knee injury. I think the best-case situation for him is that he turns into what it seemed like the last staff(s) seemingly wanted Nate Terry to be: a massive goal-line weapon. If Mitchell is your goal-line guy who catches 2-4 scores but you're mostly throwing to Chase, Edrine, Brandon Robinsonn, etc., I don't think that's a loss. And they need someone who can beat defenders in the redzone on those 50-50 balls.
