We Hardly Knew Ye: If It's Lynch, It's Gawn

Marshawn Lynch, that is, honest, well-adjusted and intellectually curious yet steadfastly practical California tailback, who declared Tuesday for April's pro draft after his 111-yard, two-touchdown romp in the Holiday Bowl. Pity the poor Bears, who will be forced next season to turn to backup Justin Forsett, who averaged a mere 6.3 per carry after going for 7.6 as a sophomore. Cry, cry Cal a river.

The final line on a legitimate stud back of whom we hardly saw enough - as way or warning, do not stare directly at the yards per carry:

Rushing ATT YDS AVG LNG TD Receiving REC YDS AVG LNG TD
2004 71 628 8.8 70 8 2004 19 147 7.7 29 2
2005 196 1246 6.4 52 10 2005 15 125 8.3 25 0
2006 223 1356 6.1 71 11 2006 34 328 9.6 28 4
Career 490 3,320 6.6 71 29 Career 68 600 8.8 29 6


Marshawn's subtle fashion sense and winning smile project him into the draft's top ten...but the whale stays with Longshore
