LaMichael James of the Oregon Ducks is one of those accomplished college players that has the right blend of toughness, speed, versatility and durability that would seem to be perfect for the NFL. The big question regarding James comes from his size and his elusiveness, and how much he can really accomplish against top-level NFL defenses.
