They made a good draft pick...
It's very significant. The competition he was playing wasn't up to par since he wasn't in D-IA, let alone having to make the transition most players do. Regardless, he's a running back drafted as a running back (and unless you're a massive physical specimen, if you can't catch the ball out of the backfield, you're not in the NFL anyways) regardless of what else he did and has to learn the intricacies of an NFL offense.
