SCOUTING REPORT: RB Jackie Battle
BIO: Part-time starter the past two years totaling career numbers of 184/943/15 carrying the ball as a senior. Junior totals included 408-yards rushing and five scores.
POSITIVE: Nice-sized short-yardage runner best between tackles. Finds the running lanes, works runs on the inside and falls forward when tackled. Keeps his feet moving on contact and strong ball carrier who picks up the tough yardage. Displays vision as a ball carrier or blocker.
NEGATIVE: Straight-line runner who does not have the speed to get around the corner. Average hands out of the backfield. Not decisive nor elusive.
FINAL ANALYSIS: A hard-pounding, short-yardage ball carrier, Battle's best opportunity at the next level may come as a lead blocking fullback.
