    Wasn't sure where to put this thread, so if any mods want to move it, feel free (like you need my permission).

    Saw a story about former RB Fred Taylor's son Kelvin, who's now the starting running back on his Florida high school varsity team. I know, no big deal - except that he's only in 8th grade. Maybe coach Chizik can get on him early, ala Tim Floyd.

    Rivals High - Kelvin Taylor reminding many of his dad

    If I remember correctly, Fred Taylor was the strongest guy on the Jags. I think he benched close to 500 pounds, something like that. All while still running a 4.5 40 still at least. Physical freak. I know there are performance enhancers, but nothing works like good old genetics. As for his son, WOW. That size at that age. Amazing. He may be the next person who could skip college and go straight to the NFL if he wanted to. Think Adrian Peterson.

    Considering his Dad went to Florida...and they live in Florida, I will say the Gators have the inside track.
