NFL Draft Scouting Report: Reggie Bush

Quite possibly the most dynamic player in college football today, Reggie Bush will give the USC Trojans back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners. And like last year's claimant, Bush will be an early pick in April's NFL Draft, if he opts for the pro-ranks.

Full Name:  Reggie Bush    School: USC

Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 200 40: 4.45

Pos: Explosive back and game impacting skill player dangerous whenever handling the ball. Patient runner who waits for blocks to develop then displays outstanding footwork everywhere on the field. Elusive, slippery and can double cut during a single run, making several defenders miss. Outstanding open field running skills. Possesses a terrific burst of speed and quickness. Solid receiver out of the backfield.  Game breaking punt returner.

Neg: Not a heavy duty ball carrier who takes a consistent pounding on the inside. Loses out in battles as a receiver.

Analysis: A hard working skill player, Bush has homerun hitting speed and can produce in a variety of ways. May not be a back for everyone due to limited size yet can be very productive in a friendly scheme.
