2013: Second-team All-MWC pick after starting in all 13 games. Rushed for 1,284 yards, the fourth most in school history. 2012: Honorable mention All-MWC selection after starting in all 13 games. Had 1,232 rushing yards, the fifth in school history. 2011: Played in 11 games and started in six. Led team with 671 rushing yards. 2010: Played in 13 games, starting six. First freshman to ever lead UNLV in rushing (546).



Thick, muscular build. Outstanding timed speed. Is tough and will play through injuries (battled through a torn left labrum as a junior). Very good weight-room worker. Terrific production -- UNLV's all-time leading rusher. Has kickoff-return experience.


Tight-hipped and straight-linish. Marginal power and tackle-breaking strength -- limited yards after contact. Minimal creativity to set up runs -- takes little more than the defense gives him. Runs tall and is easily turned on contact. Struggles to take the corner. Average balance and body control. Struggles negotiating through traffic. Does not play to his timed speed. Passive blocker.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

A one-cut zone runner lacking ideal balance and competitiveness desired on the front lines and the temperament for special teams. More of a workout warrior than football player at this stage of his development and will be challenged to produce against better competition.
