    Default Bruce Anderson the best RB receiving threat in Bison history?

    After watching what Bruce has done the receiving game this year, I am wondering if he may be the best receiving threat at RB NDSU has ever had?

    Discuss. I'd have nightmares as a DC if facing him.

    Lamar Gordon had 30 receptions during his rookie season in the NFL. I can't remember how often he caught passes at NDSU.

    DJ McNorton was a good one. He was lethal with screen passes.

    Also, Ryan Smith started as an RB if that counts.

    Bruce looks a lot like David Johnson to me skill and size wise.

    Loved watching Roehl bowl.

    Hard to argue against Bruce if he keeps this up.

    I think Crockett was a pretty solid receiving back as well. I think that's what helped get him looks at then next level.

    I thought Seth Wilson was declared greatest receiving RB in history last year.

    Bruce has been crazy good last half of last year and so far this year, but I'd never mistake him for David Johnson, at least stature wise.

    Stretching on the size, lean beef cut though.

    The upright running when taking the passed ball in stride looks good when guys can do it at top speed and balance to avoid tripping on a missed/ankle tackle. Doesn’t hurt when ball placement is there by qb.

    Bruce has trimmed down this year, just doesn't quite have the length as Johnson.

    Will be interesting to see if Bruce has a shot at the next level. He keeps up his pace it might happen.
