In fact, he believes his style of play is different from everyone else in the country as well.
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said that he understands why players like Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey skipped their bowl games. "I think that's what sets me apart", said McCaffrey, who plans to run routes at his pro day later this month.
Officially listed as a running back, he is anything but limited to just one position. He did all of that at the highest level as he was named the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2015.
"I have the best teammates in the whole world at Stanford, and coaches, honestly", he said. Given his production at Stanford, he expressed a little confusion at why some have questioned his ability to transition to a full-time player in the NFL. "I'll do anything a team needs me to do".
McCaffrey and LSU running back Leonard Fournette, two high-profile players in this draft class, each made a decision to forego their team's final game.
What those players will find among coaches and executives is more understanding of the decision to bypass the bowl game than seemed possible. McCaffrey is expected to make an immediate impact on any team that he joins: he is explosive on special teams and can produce both as a running threat and a receiving threat out of the backfield.

The Cowboys used their first pick, fourth overall, on Ezekiel Elliott, whose spectacular rookie season restored value to first-round running back prospects like Fournette and McCaffrey. While a first-round pick is highly impressive, that's not good enough for Christian. "When I thought about it, kind of the old school in me wanted to come out and say, 'Why would those guys not play?" "I'll tell them I take credit for it too". I don't feel like I'm insane disrespected. "I am constantly trying to prove myself".
For Christian McCaffrey, the only thing harder than skipping the Sun Bowl was having to inform his teammates. Asked what it would mean to play for the Broncos, Christian responded, "It's what you dream of as a kid".
"That'd be awesome. That'd be great", McCaffrey said of becoming a Bronco. The Stanford contingent is likely to live up to the Cardinal's strong pedigree in the National Football League; all four players are expected to make a significant impact in the NFL.
"It's something that these kids will have to weigh moving forward but I think it will effect football moving forward in years to come".
"Enjoy it; it's a once in a lifetime process. I was just real lucky to have a bunch of guys that had my back". "I was just happy to have a lot of guys who had my back then".
