Analysis

Strengths

Has a strong, compact build. Good vision, quickness, agility and short-area burst -- makes subtle moves and can sort his way through tight spaces, find small creases and make the first tackler miss. Sets up runs and has good lower-body power to kick through arm tackles. Runs hard with a low center of gravity and does not go down easy. Good receiving skills and open-field running vision to create after the catch. Outstanding production.

Weaknesses

Average size. Lacks bellcow power and run strength ideally suited to carry a full workload. Likes to bounce a lot and press the edges. Will need more technique work in pass protection. Did not regularly face top competition and will be more challenged by the speed of the NFL game.

Bottom Line

A herky-jerky, off-tackle/perimeter runner most ideally suited for a zone ground game such as the Eagles, Seahawks or Packers, Muema could earn a complementary role as a change-of-pace back. Could be a surprise, late-round find.
