Positives: Has a solid muscular build with long arms and broad shoulders…Fine athlete who also ran track for the Tigers…Has good body control, showing sudden moves coming off the snap…Effective route-runner out of the backfield…Has great acceleration as a return man…Works the sidelines well, keeping balance as he extends for the pass…Sinks his hips and separates quickly once he finds the seam…Known for his leaping ability, he utilizes those skills effectively battling for the ball…Has the pull-away speed needed to elude after the catch…Catches the ball cleanly with hands extended…Can track and locate the ball on deep routes…Very creative after the catch, showing the hip snap and wiggle to make the initial tackler miss…Very precise cutting in the open…Battles downfield as a blocker, delivering a solid jolt…Dangerous when lining up in the backfield, creating mismatches for linebackers with his speed.

Negatives: Despite his track speed, he lacks flexibility in his moves…Likes to trap the ball, letting it absorb into his body…Has problems changing directions and will tend to lose his concentration when not involved in the play…Has more pick-up speed than a quick initial burst…Had a "high maintainance" personality earlier in his career, but has matured over the years.
