Sheets went undrafted out of Purdue University before hooking up with the
San Francisco 49ers.
Sheets started 36 of 50 games at Purdue and left as the school's
second-leading all-time rusher behind former Tampa Bay Bucs star Mike
Sheets, who closed out his career by rushing for 1,161 yards and adding 253
yards on 37 catches, was a touchdown machine at Purdue.
He scored at least 10 touchdowns every year, with a high of 17 in his senior
Sheets also did some kickoff returning, although his numbers weren't great.
Sheets has been compared to Seattle Seahawks starter Julius Jones. He's not
big at 5-11, 206 and he's not a burner, either.
*** In fact, Sheets was told by a scout at the Senior Bowl his lack of speed
was a concern.*** Sheets then went out and ran the third-fastest time at the
combine among running backs.
what I get out of all this is that he is fast on the track but not on the
football field.... Sounds like a guy that will contribute "this" season.
49er Fans were upset that we stole him from their PS.
