Strengths: Good size with the frame for additional muscle mass. Good initial quickness off the snap. Accelerates to and through the hole and reaches maximum speed quickly. Good lateral mobility to evade defenders in space. Slippery runner who twists and slides as he is being tackled, generating positive yards after initial contact. Good forward lean, showing the leg drive as a short-yardage runner. At least an adequate receiver. Can extend and catch the ball outside of his frame. Willing pass blocker. Weaknesses: Viewed by some as more of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none type. Lacks the explosiveness to consistently make defenders miss in tight quarters and is not the power runner his size would indicate. Inconsistent. Struggled in 2006; missing time due to an ankle injury and suspension for an off-campus fight. Missed the 2008 spring due to minor knee surgery. Has had issues with fumbles during his career.
