  1. Tyler Natee is a load, and I mean that as a compliment. I love the story about how Wilson first became aware of him. Assuming he stays healthy, just imagine how good he can become with a year of conditioning and coaching from one of the best running back coaches in college football. My guess is that we’ll see Natee playing at a granite-like 260 lbs. in a year or two. And who will want to get in front of that when he has a full head of steam? Great story.
