Overview

The Houston-area prep turned in a huge senior year in his only year of varsity football, rushing 152 times for 1,569 yards (10.3 yards per carry). Also lettered in track. Played in all 13 games (six starts) for UNLV in 2010 and became the first freshman to lead the Rebels in rushing, carrying the ball 144 times for 546 yards (3.8-yard average) and six touchdowns with 13 receptions for 98 yards (7.5) and two touchdowns. Also returned 14 kickoffs for 333 yards (23.8). Saw action in 11 games (six starts) in 2011 and had 119 carries for 671 yards (5.6) and seven TDs; 10 catches for 54 yards and no TDs; and six kickoff returns for 202 yards and a TD. Was suspended for one game for a violation of team rules. In 2012, he had 242 carries for 1,232 yards (5.1) and seven TDs and 14 catches for 108 yards and no TDs in 13 starts. Tore the labrum in his left shoulder in fall practice and played all year with it before undergoing postseason surgery. In 2013, he became just the second UNLV player to have multiple 1,000-yard campaigns, amassing 264 carries for 1,284 yards (4.9) and 15 TDs and 30 catches for 164 yards and no TDs. Had a career-best 220-yard performance Nov. 21 at Air Force, scoring four touchdowns. After entering the year with only one collegiate fumble, he had two fumbles as a senior, including his only career turnover Sept. 28 in his 589th rushing attempt at UNLV. Became the first player to lead UNLV in rushing four times, finishing his college career with 3,733 rushing yards.

Analysis

Strengths

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.

Weaknesses

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

Priority free agent

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.
