Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Rashad Wynes, RB, Belhaven
Rashad Wynes enters the 2012 season as one of the top returners on the squad and a very solid running back. Last season he finished first on the team in punt return average at 14.5 yards a return and averaged 22.1 yards on each kick return. Wynes is a 6’1 back that has very good speed. He was a transfer from University Alabama of Birmingham and is a very solid back. I think Wynes will be a guy that can make a roster in the NFL, he is a very solid, hard running back. He runs with tons of power and tenacity.Rashad is a very solid Kick and Punt Returner and teams will try to stack the box, but I would not be surprised if this kid still has a great season.
