Baylor redshirt sophomore RB Shock Linwood finished sixth in the Big 12 in rushing last season despite being the third tailback on the Baylor roster.
Linwood is set to replace sixth-rounder Lache Seastrunk in the starting lineup this season; second-string hammer Glasco Martin, a UDFA, is now in the pros as well. NFL.com's Charles Davis called Linwood a LaDainian Tomlinson clone in December. The 5-foot-8, 200-pound Linwood finished with 881 yards, eight touchdowns and a 6.9-yard-per-carry average in 2013. "Linwood is a small but powerful back who can go the distance when he gets loose," wrote NFL.com's Chase Goodbread. May 23 - 2:19 PM

NFL.com's Charles Davis believes Baylor redshirt freshman RB Shock Linwood is a LaDainian Tomlinson clone.

Linwood was the Bears third running back but saw the field for 125 carries this season, resulting 862 yards and eight touchdowns. Davis spoke to LT about Linwood, and the future hall of famer called the young runner "a legit item." Linwood is expected to see more carries next season, since Lache Seastrunk could declare for the draft.

Baylor redshirt freshman RB Shock Linwood rushed for 182 yards on 23 carries in Thursday's 41-12 victory over Oklahoma.

Baylor lost its top two running backs -- Lache Seastrunk and Glasco Martin -- to injury during the game, but no matter. The Bears' freshman has gotten far more work than the typical third-string back because Baylor's games are rarely competitive in the second half. Shock, averaging 8.1 yards per carry, has run for 100 yards or more in three of his last four games and cashed in seven touchdowns total.
