Hampton is a tireless runner who relies on his thick thighs and power to carry piles for yardage production. He is an inside runner who is quick off the snap to hit the hole. He is good to shuffle his body to avoid trash and get back in line to hit the hole. He is a sudden accelerator whose short area burst allows him to get to the second level quickly, where he has a little wiggle and serious power to force drag-tackles and gain an extra 3 yards after contact. He is a compact athlete who has deceptive speed in the open field. He has an ideal frame to block in pass protection and could be relied upon in that role as a rookie.
Hampton has below-average speed for the position and will struggle to separate from defenders and break into the open field at the next level. He won?t be a team's best option as a receiver out of the backfield and will be a limited short-yardage player. There's a chance he could be productive in a featured role, but it's likely any team that selects him will simply have more athletically gifted backs in the stable.56.0
