STATS & BIO: Team's
primary back since he was a true junior.
Played in nine games last season finishing with 132/676/5.1/4 on the
ground and 19/337/17.7/3 receiving. All-Conference
the prior year when his rushing numbers were 160/1,005/6.3/10 and receiving
THE GOOD: Skilled interior runner and a back with patience and determination. Sees the field, waits for his blocks to develop and will pick and choose his spots. Runs with forward lean, balance and displays the ability to cut it back in a small area. Built low to the ground, strong in his lower body and breaks arm tackles. Adequate receiver out of the backfield that looks the ball into his hands, sets up his blocks down the field and is always working to pick up extra yardage.
THE BAD: Not quick or fast through the hole, cannot run to daylight or beat opponents around the corner. Gives an attempt blocking, but not overly effective.
THE SKINNY: Forty-time makes it unlikely that he'll be drafted, though he plays
much faster than he times and has been rather durable throughout college.
Don't be surprised to see him on an active roster next September.
