With fellow senior Thomas Brown and super-frosh Knowshon Moreno taking most of the carries this season, Lumpkin struggled to get on the field. Still, his strong interior running and soft hands out of the backfield make him a legitimate sleeper prospect for the NFL. Lumpkin lacks the speed and elusiveness to consistently make defenders miss, but he's a reliable one-cut runner who can be found late and add toughness to a team's rushing attack.



Positives: Well-defined body. ... At least adequate initial quickness to and through the hole. ... Good power. ... Runs with good forward lean and can run through tacklers. ... Flashes some explosiveness on contact and keeps his feet moving to generate extra yardage. ... Competitive pass blocker who shows good physicality and form. ... Natural pass catcher who can extend and pluck away from his body. Negatives: Lacks elite quickness, agility or the second gear to break away from defenders in the open field. ... Almost runs too hard at times, exposing the ball too much while trying to generate yards after contact. ... Has struggled with ball security over his career. ... Generally durable, but a torn ACL caused him to miss the entire 2004 season.
