Prospect Profile: Joseph Addai

Full Name: Joseph Addai School: LSU Pos: RB

Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 214 40: 4.41 Year: 5Sr

Bio: LSU's feature back as a senior after sporadically playing with the first team the prior two years. Rushing totals included 187/911/9 with 20/180/1 receiving. Posted 680 yards on the ground as a junior and career-best receiving numbers of 26/294/4.

Pos: Explosive running back moving up draft boards. Patient runner with outstanding instincts, vision and speed. Makes defenders miss in the open field, deceptively strong and breaks tackles. Fast enough to beat defenders around the corner. Solid receiver who adjusts to the errant throw and catches the pass with his hands.

Neg: Runs with an upright style. Marginally productive as a blocker.

Analysis: A high-motor player who does the extras to become better, Addai is slowly developing a complete game. Coming off a terrific senior campaign he is poised to become a starting ball carrier at the next level.
