TFY Draft Prospect Profile: Ciatrick Fason

What do the draft experts think of Ciatrick Fason and his projection to the next level?

Ciatrick Fason School: Florida
Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 207 40: 4.65 Year: 3Jr

Bio: Became a full-time starter last season and led the team on the ground with 222/1,267/10, averaging 5.7 yards per carry. Also added 35/266/2 as a receiver.

Positives: Well-sized ball carrier with a penchant for breaking the long run. Sees the field, follows blocks and keeps driving up the field. Excellent short yardage runner. Deceptively elusive, quickly cuts back against the grain. Displays good blocking vision, chips defenders, disrupting their angle to the play.

Negatives: Not a smooth back and looks like he's laboring most of the time. Does not run with great body control. Lacks the speed to run to daylight and possesses just adequate size.

Analysis: A productive ball carrier consistently progressing on the football field, Fason has the size and build to be a productive runner at the next level. May take some time adjusting to a pro style offense but has the tools to eventually develop into a featured ball carrier.
