Height: 5-11. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.37.
Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick.
1/3/09: If C.J. Spiller runs a mid-4.3 at the combine, he could be chosen late in the first round or early in the second round to be utilized in a Chris Johnson-, Felix Jones-type role. Spiller had 1,042 total yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008. He also scored on a kickoff return.

10/18/08: Despite Cullen Harper's struggles, C.J. Spiller has been able to gain 6.5 yards per carry and score six total touchdowns.

5/21/08: C.J. Spiller's 40 will get him drafted high despite the fact that he'll never be able to carry the load in the NFL; he averaged a bit more than 11 carries per contest as a sophomore. Spiller compiled 768 rushing yards, 34 receptions and five total touchdowns.

2007: James Davis better head for the NFL after the 2007 season because I can't see the Tigers' coaching staff giving C.J. Spiller half the carries for too much longer. Spiller, who averaged 7.3 yards per carry and rushed for 10 touchdowns, runs a 4.37. He also caught 19 passes for 210 yards. Not bad for a freshman.

09/10/09- vs. Georgia Tech- Pass reception which he ran for a long TD. Good hands. Quiet in this game. Does a decent job one on one blocking Derrick Morgan, albeit they were chop blocks.

3/18/10- vs. Kentucky (replay)- Has very nice cut back ability. Shows he can follow tackles and drill it in there, doesn't usually go down on 1st contact. May need work on his blocking (1st 9:19). Wont always show great vision. (1st 7:56). Amazing open field running. A real threat as a dump off receiver due to what he can do in space. (1st 1:20). Amazing speed and quickness. Shows great wiggle and an ability to break tackles and drag tacklers (1st 0:49). Blows the chop block on this play (1st 0:16). Above average returner due to his speed and ability to evade tacklers in the open field. He seems like the type of RB who may need space to work. He has good vision, but he isn't the type of guy that will thrive inside, hes an outside type runner who will burn you deep if he gets room to work. More of the same on this play, shows soft hands in the flat, and is able to shake a tackle or two and get nice extra yards. If you run him up the middle 3 downs in a row, you may end up with 0 yards gained, if you run him to the outside or dump it off to him, you likely to get a 1st down more often than not. On this inside run, he showed some ability to bounce around and get extra yards (4th 13:21). He shows you what he can do with room to run on this play, he can be a great RB with room to move. (4th 3:28).
