Evan Royster Is Getting Big

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 25, 2011 – 2:00 pm

Through much of the offseason prognostication and chatter, Evan Royster has been the forgotten man in the open competition for starting running back.  Whether it’s Ryan Torain, Roy Helu, or an unknown free agent, Royster has managed to fly under the radar.  His workouts with Insane Training Systems, however, have been pretty…well, insane.

Courtesy of his twitter account (@EvanRoyster22), he’s showing off his impressive footwork:

He’s also been building up his upper-body strength, which will help him with both power running and pass blocking.  That happens to be 455 pounds:

Here’s another one of him doing shoulder shrugs:

At 6-0, 212 pounds, and a 4.65 40 yard time, he’s not especially big and he’s not especially fast, but he certainly still has the ability to be a complete back.  He was a beast at Penn State, with a career line of 3,932 yards on 686 carries, with 29 rushing touchdowns.  In his post-draft conference call with the media, Royster said that head coach Mike Shanahan had compared him to Terrell Davis.  No pressure there, of course.
