Positives: Smooth, well proportioned athlete. ... Good quickness off the snap. ... Reads blocks well and knows when to explode into the line and when to exercise patience and allow the blocks to develop. ... Elusive in the open field. ... Good start and stop and lateral agility to make defenders miss. ... Natural runner who flashes the stiff-arm, spin and forward lean to consistently gain extra yardage after contact. ... Best attribute is pure, unadulterated speed. ... Rare acceleration to burst through the defense and breakaway. ... Averaged 20.1 yards on his 34 career TDs, including 35.7 on TD receptions. ... Has relatively fresh legs after only emerging as the full-time starter as a junior. ... At least adequate route-running and hands out of the backfield. ... Four-time All-American in track. ... Personal best 10.26 seconds in the 100-meter dash in winning the Big 12 title as a freshman. Negatives: Looks smaller on film than the 6-1, 205 pounds Texas lists him as. ... Has struggled at times with fumbles, including a key lost fumble in a 28-21 loss to rival Oklahoma in 2007. ... At his best in the open field. ... Not a particularly physical back who will run over defenders in the hole. ... Willing, but limited pass blocker.
