ColtPower Audio: Laurence Maroney

Minnesota Gophers running back Laurence Maroney responds to our question about the Colts at the NFL Combine.

With the re-signing of Colts running back Edgerrin James looking like a longshot, Indianapolis will have to explore both college and free agent running backs for alternatives. One very solid alternative would be the Minnesota Gophers' Laurence Maroney.

Just an inch shorter and about 5 pounds lighter than James, Maroney's quickness and ability to avoid the tackle with his moves and physical strength are the cornerstones of his game. While James is a better receiver and blocker, Maroney would give the Colts a real breakaway threat if they use their top pick on him. In pass protection, Maroney is an active and enthusiastic blocker. But he needs to improve his technique.

We asked him at the Combine about how he saw himself fitting into the Colts system. Here's the audio of that moment, loaded up for the enjoyment of our premium members.
