Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Meet Kenneth Darby



Darby Position: Running back.

Height: 5-10.

Weight: 211.

College: Alabama.

Highlights/stats: Darby blossomed with a 1,000-yard season as a sophomore and was named first-team All-SEC with 1,200 yards as a junior. His production dipped to 800 yards as a senior while Alabama struggled, causing his draft status to drop.

The verdict: A tough, north-south runner early in his career at Alabama, Darby ran side-to-side too much as a senior. If the Bucs can get him back to the form he showed as a junior, they could have a find, though making the roster at running back will be a challenge.
