Prospect Profile: Travis Glasford

Full Name: Travis Glasford School: Western Illinois Pos: RB

Ht: 5-9 Wt: 186 40: 4.44 Year: 5Sr

Bio: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 219/1,052/12 on the ground while also adding 44/432/2 as a pass catcher. Posted a career-high 1,368 yards rushing and 20 scores as a sophomore.

Pos: Versatile back with potential as a situational runner in the NFL. Patient ball carrier who displays good first-step quickness and slides through defenders' grips. Natural receiver and makes the reception away from his frame.

Neg: Marginally strong and does not pick up yardage off initial contact. Does not play to his timed speed. Mostly a short-area receiver out of the backfield rather than a true downfield threat.

Analysis: Very productive the past three seasons, Glasford's ability to catch the football gives him the upper hand in finding a roster spot.
