Chris Steuber Ranking
#16 out of 357 overall
#2 at RB
Wells is a big back who has the ability to break free in the open field. He has great vision and displays patience when identifying a hole to attack. He sets up defenders nicely using his deceptive shiftiness and features a strong stiff arm to pick up tough yards. He has the ability to carry the load and take over a game. Durability is an issue, but when healthy, he's one of the premier players in the nation.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis With veteran RB Edgerrin James expected to be released soon, the selection of Wells became more obvious. They want to get back to power running and Wells fits that profile quite well.
