Draft Scout Josh Snead News
08/27/13 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: The Blue Devils will have to develop enough playmakers on offense to compensate for the losses of graduates Sean Renfree at quarterback and Conner Vernon at receiver. Duke is turning more to a zone-read offense, and that might fit the personnel best on this team. The annual suggestions that there will be more emphasis placed on the rushing attack need to come to fruition, and the bonus on that front is that there are solid returnees among the running backs with Juwan Thompson, Jela Duncan and Josh Snead. The depth in the backfield will have to pay off because it would be natural for there to be a drop-off in the passing attack. With QB Anthony Boone, there's more of a running presence than with Renfree, and that should bode well in helping the offense in its quest for better balance. - The Sports Xchange
12/27/12 - Scouting the Duke running game: This has been a sore spot for years for the Blue Devils and it occasionally has shown some life. If nothing else, the potential for a rushing attack comes in several forms, including with the use of QB Brandon Connette in special situations (usually short yardage or goal line). Freshman RB Jela Duncan has emerged as the most productive of the tailbacks, though RB Josh Snead can be a spark when he's healthy. The offensive line is generally an experienced group, so that's something that could be viewed as a positive. - The Sports Xchange
08/09/12 - DUKE BREAKOUT STAR: RB Josh Snead has darting speed and can be shifty when carrying the ball and that makes him at times the type of player that the Blue Devils don't normally have on their roster. The coaching staff likes the 190-pounders' fearless approach. He has been a spring-game standout a couple of times, so translating that to the season with consistency will be the next step. If there's a glimpse of a player capable of becoming a catalyst for a rushing attack, the Blue Devils will want to take full advantage. - The Sports Xchange
