Analysis

Strengths

Thickly built with a low center of gravity. Good run vision and patience allowing holes to develop. Drives his legs on contact. Rose to the occasion vs. better competition (see Texas A&M). Very durable. Dedicated gym rat. Very gregarious, well-respected personality.

Weaknesses

Has very small hands. Had 999 college carries and took a lot of hits. Average creativity -- not dynamic and does not string moves together. Lacks top-end speed to pull away from the pack. Not a powerful tackle-breaker and often goes down on initial contact (average yards after contact). Does not create his own hole. Will need work in pass protection.

Bottom Line

Tough, competitive, hard-nosed runner with the eyes, instincts and intangibles to earn a role. Has make-it qualities that could endear him to a coaching staff and add life to a locker room.
