Ryan Fuqua School: Portland State
Ht: 5-9.5 Wt: 202 40: 4.61 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees
of all-conference honors since his freshman
campaign. Finished with 193/1,021/9 on the
ground as a senior, adding 15/161 receptions.
Posted career rushing numbers of 1,586 yards
and 15 touchdowns as a freshman.
Undersized yet productive back with good
ball carrying intangibles. Patient, displays
good vision and follows blocks. Quick footed
and immediately cuts back against the grain
or changes direction on a dime. Has a burst
through the hole. Willing blocker who picks
up stunts or twists thrown by defenders.
Easily goes down on the first hit and not a runner
who breaks tackles or picks up yardage off
initial contact. Lacks the speed to run to daylight.
Has watched his production slowly diminish after
a tremendous freshman campaign.
Lacking the ideal size/speed numbers for the
next level, Fuqua's only shot is as a third down
back in the NFL. Previous experience as a kick
returner will come in handy.
