Houston Texans running back Steve Slaton is another back who people are either very high on or very wary of.
Questions about him are many: Is he too small to carry the load (ala Maurice Jones-Drew)? Will he lose carries to a second back (ala Joseph Addai)? Will he have issues if (maybe when) quarterback Matt Schaub or wide receiver Andre Johnson go down? Let’s take a look at these very valid concerns and see if they hold up and, if so (or if not), what that truly means. First of all, size. While I have been researching an article on Jones-Drew, I’ve taken a hard look at the sizes and weights of many NFL running backs. Slaton is a tad on the short side, although at 5′9″, I still think that’s not a huge concern.
