Both got off to exciting starts last weekend. Spiller took the opening kick off 97 yards for a TD in the Tigers 37-14 victory over Middle Tennessee. He sat out the second half with a tweaked hamstring as a precaution, but will feature tonight.
Dwyer, the reigning ACC player of the year, scored from a 74 yard pitch on the first play from scrimmage in GT's 37-17 win over Jacksonville State. He added a further score later on but was quickly rested in anticipation of tougher tests ahead.
It's no secret that the Seahawks have lacked some dynamism at the position since the fall from grace of Shaun Alexander. The late decision to replace T.J. Duckett with Edgerrin James further suggests the team aren't entirely satisfied with their stable of backs.
It might be worth checking out the GT/Clemson game tonight if you want to see two of the better RB's who could be available in next year's draft. Spiller will certainly be there as a senior, Dwyer will likely declare as a junior.
