— Kansas University running back James Sims totaled 63 yards for the National Team in a 31-17 victory at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday at StubHub Center.

Sims had the first carry of the game for the National Team, but rushed for just 16 yards by halftime. In the third quarter, Sims helped set up National Team touchdowns with a 13-yard rush and a 20-yard catch — his only reception of the game. Sims finished with 10 rushes for 43 yards.

Sims, the second leading rusher among Big 12 running backs in his senior season at KU, was teammates with Oklahoma back Roy Fitch, who had 122 all-purpose yards.

LSU fullback J.C. Copeland scored a pair of one-yard touchdowns for the National team and was named MVP.

Former Kansas City Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil coached the National squad. Vermeil has guided the National to victory in all three installments of the game.

I think that either the Pats or the Chiefs will draft James with a late-round pick, and he'll stick. I'm guessing that he won't be a Combine star but here is where Charlie's connections need to come through.

Right now he's the 31st ranked rb. Let's hope he improves his stock.
