Overview

Saine lacks the instincts and durability to be an every down player, but shows the skills and right attitude to be a change of pace back at the next level. He is a downhill runner with enough speed to get the corner and break a long run when he finds daylight. He can be a weapon out of the backfield, as he is too athletic for linebackers and has reliable hands. However, he lacks the vision and patience to consistently find holes and is susceptible to injury. He can be an effective complimentary back in the NFL and will likely be a Day 2 pick.

Analysis

Strengths

Saine is a big back that can run. Possesses a quick first step and a second gear to exploit seams. Tough runner that shows good lean and always falls forward in short yardage situations. Has enough wiggle to make the first defender miss. Effective receiver and willing blocker in the passing game.

Weaknesses

A bit stiff in the hips and struggles to make sharp cuts. Possesses less than ideal vision, looks to bounce runs outside too often and misses the open running lanes at times. Does not always run with a good pad level and lacks the lower body strength to push the pile. Not very durable.
