West Virginia Football: Dreamius Smith signs with San Diego


According to a tweet sent out by former West Virginia running back Dreamius Smith, the once Mountaineer has signed a deal with the San Diego Chargers.

Smith spent two seasons at West Virginia, during his stay he accumulated 945-yards and 10 touchdowns. Smith saw better stats in 2013 and wasn’t utilized all that much this past season as he played backup to Rushel Shell and Wendell Smallwood.

Smith, however, has all the potential to be a NFL running back. Smith has speed and agility. His speed is dissipative as he has the capability to turn on the second gear and pull away from defenders, but he also has the moves to be considered “shifty.”

He’s a full package. He’s not as seasoned as some of the other backs who went in the first round, but with NFL coaches help and perhaps a little more time in the weight room, Smith could be a backup running back for the Chargers this coming season.

He’s not ready to be a starter, but with time, this could change.
