Notes:
Stewart showed his promise by rushing for nine touchdowns on only 72 carries as a freshman...He then overcame injury problems in 2006 to post 981 yards and 10 scores...Everything came together in 2007, as Stewart exploded for a school-record 1,722 yards and posted 2,481 all-purpose yards...Scored 13 touchdowns and showed good hands...Although durability is a concern, Stewart's upside is obvious...With the body to endure the NFL pounding and the speed to outrun defenders, he had all the tools to be a star...The ability to catch the football and excel on special teams improves his stock...At 233 pounds, Stewart is shifty enough to avoid tacklers both at the line of scrimmage andin the open field...First-round talent is undeniable.
