CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that there "aren't too many differences" between West Virginia senior RB Dreamius Smith and ex-Mountaineer RB Charles Sims.
"The second-leading rusher for West Virginia in 2013, Smith played behind Charles Sims last season, who was drafted 69th overall last month by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But on film, there really aren't too many differences in the two prospects. Smith has quick feet and lateral agility with a balanced lower body to make strong cuts and shake defenders," Brugler wrote. The 5-11, 220 pound Smith has the ideal size and physicality to his game, as well as the speed to take it the distance. Unfortunately with only two catches to his resume in 2013, Smith will have to show evaluators that he can be an effective pass-catcher out of the backfield in order to raise his stock.

NFL.com projects West Virginia senior RB Dreamius Smith as Charles Sims' replacement at starting halfback.

"Sims had the rare ability to be the primary ball carrier and be a threat out of the backfield, and that will be tough to find in just one back," wrote Bryan Fischer. "Luckily Dana Holgorsen has plenty of options in what should be the Big 12's deepest backfield." Smith will fight for a share of the playing time this summer with Wendell Smallwood, Andrew Buie, Pitt transfer Rushel Shell and true freshman Donte Thomas-Williams. Despite the loss of Sims, don't expect a dropoff in the rushing attack.

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said junior RB Dreamius Smith will garner more playing time and carries when he improves his blocking.

Smith broke off a 75-yard touchdown run in the second series of Saturday's game against Oklahoma, but was given just one more carry the rest of the game because he muffed a block in pass protection that led to QB Paul Millard getting drilled and fumbling the ball. "I take all the responsibility for that," Smith said. "That's one thing I'm working on to improve more is my blocking. If my blocking improves, [it means] more carries. That's what it sounds like." Holgorsen, when asked if that assessment was accurate, said: "Yes. A hundred percent." Smith, a JUCO transfer, is stuck in a loaded backfield headlined by Charles Sims, but he could become a nice piece in Big 12-only fantasy leagues if he clearly leapfrogs fellow backups Wendell Smallwood and Dustin Garrison on the depth chart.
