Analysis

Strengths

Equipped to run between the tackles and withstand a pounding. Good vision -- reads and cuts off blocks. Runs with attitude and power -- stays behind his pads, churns out yards after contact and finishes runs. Opens up his stride in space and has competitive speed to break long runs. Rare production. Bore a heavy workload and thrived with a lather. Has a nose for the goal line -- 83 rushing TDs in three seasons.

Weaknesses

Lacks elite timed speed. Average initial quickness and elusiveness. Tight hips. Can be more cognizant of ball security -- tends to swing the ball away from his body and fumbled five times as a junior. Needs to polish his third-down skills, including route running and pass-protection awareness. Running style and college workload do not lend to longevity -- tread is worn down from 780 carries in three seasons.

Bottom Line

Good-sized, compactly built, highly productive, physical workhorse and program-changer who took Towson to new heights while dominating inferior competition. Has the chops to factor prominently in a power-running scheme, showing the ability to slash and cut, run over defenders and contribute as a receiver.
