J.J. Arrington School: California
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 214 40: 4.48 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Junior college transfer who emerged as
one of the nation's top backs last season after
totaling 289/2,018/15 on the ground and adding
21/121 as a pass catcher. Averaged more than
six yards per attempt on almost 400 carries the
past two seasons.
Positives: Hard-running, tough ball
carrier with marginal size for the next level. Waits
for blocks to develop and displays good first-step
quickness. Has a burst through the hole, beats
defenders around the corner and keeps his feet
moving up the field. Quickly cuts back against
the grain, making defenders miss, and displays
excellent footwork. Outstanding ball-carrying
instincts as well as vision.
Negatives: Lacks the speed
to run to daylight. Not a back who creates something
out of nothing. Struggled at the Senior
Bowl as his lack of size seemingly hindered him
Analysis: Tremendously productive on
the college level as Cal's feature ball handler last
season. Offers a lot of skill for the next level, yet
lacks the size to handle the workload and better
suited as a situational running back.
