Cincinnatiis a great landing spot for him. His best bet at NFL success is in a backfield rotation. Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden has the offensive mind set that will be able to utilize Herron’s true abilities and potential at the next level. He could be a capable starting HB in a couple years if he is given the chance to completely develop. He needs to improve his blocking and hands. It would be wise for him to add some upper and lower body size as well as improve on his speed off the edge. RB’s Coach Jim Anderson will love this project.
