Analysis

Strengths

Good athlete. Outstanding weight-room strength -- bench-presses twice his weight and squats three times his weight. Tough runner -- slams hard inside and usually falls forward. Good versatility. Superb worker. Efficient cut blocker.

Weaknesses

Average size and run strength -- not a tackle-breaker. Runs a bit upright. Average burst to the perimeter. Not a creative, make-you-miss runner. Very limited career receiving production (10 career catches). Not stout in pass protection.

Bottom Line

Jack of all trades, master of none. Adjusted from a triple-option quarterbacking role as a junior to a tailback role as a senior and has enough athletic ability to warrant a chance as a change-of-pace back in the pros. Could even be tried as a return man and cornerback, where he began his college career. Would benefit from focusing on one position and will require some time to develop. Practice-squad candidate.
