Marion Grice RB:

He is an OK running back. He is no Lache Seastrunk or De’Anthony Thomas, but he is just OK. He definetly is not an every down back, he will serve as our 3rd down back but only for depth. Many draft scouts called him a “Tough runner with natural catching skills”. We currently have Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown as our top 3 backs so it will be pretty tough finding some playing time for Grice when the regular season comes. Don’t expect many plays for him in year 1, in his sophomore year however expect him to take Danny Woodhead’s role in the offense if he can develop quickly enough and if we do decide to let Danny go.
