Name: Cedric Houston School: Tennessee
Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 215 40: 4.55
The Good: Athletic ball carrier with the speed and quickness necessary
for the outside as well as the shiftiness needed to pick up yards in the middle
of the field. Runs with forward lean, displays quickness as well as a burst
through the hole. Bounces it around piles or sets up defenders and makes them
miss. Has a slashing style and the ability to slide off defenders. Solid
receiver who extends to grab the pass out of the air and runs well after the
The Bad: Indecisive and not instinctive. Must be more cognizant and
careful with ball security. Durability is an issue.
The Skinny: A prospect that flashes greatness on occasion,
Houston's career has been marred with injury and inconsistency. Looking like a
one-man show and feature ball carrier at times, Houston also comes across as
nothing more than a straight-line running back that cannot create. And while he
teases scouts, Houston's physical skill also tantalizes them, which could garner
him; a top 60 pick next April.
