Well he wouldn't be a third down back; He's more of a 1st and 2nd down back. He lacks top end speed, elusiveness, and receiving ability. He's a grinder, more in the Antwain Smith mold.

Can this kid play in the NFL or he's just a 3rd down back?

His bowl game performance was an illusion.

It wasn't an illusion...but it also wasn't representative of his true ability. He had a very good game but he has shown little consistency at the college level. I agree with alot of your other thoughts on him.
I am guessing the Bears may throw a 7th rounder at him...or they will sign him as a UDFA...for obvious reasons. I stated on another thread that given Graves' past in the NFL, he may even chuck a 7th rounder at Payton. Most likely though, he will end up in Bears camp...where he had better become a top special teams guy if he wants to continue to pursue football.
