A Hidden Gem... Maybe?

The name is Jonathon Franklin. I wouldn't be surprised if you have or haven't heard of him. He is a 5-10, 205 lb running back from UCLA. It looks like to me he that he could be a huge steal come draft day. And now with a need for it, we might want to take a chance in the third round or so. He is fast, running a 4.49, he is hard to bring down, as shown below, and he attacks the line of scrimmage sort of like Daryll Richardson. He ran for 1734 yards in 2012 so he doesn't seem too bad of a idea to me.

Granted, he could do better in pass protection, and could add some bulk, but all in all he looks like a good running back that the Rams could use with Steven Jackson gone. But I don't know if he has enough power to get into the endzone on a 3rd and Goal on the 2. So what's your take?
