Positives: Short, but extremely thick with a muscular frame, especially in his lower body. ... Good initial quickness. ... Attacks the hole, but shows the lateral agility and vision to pick and slide, as well. ... Explosive through the hole and can make defenders miss. ... Much more powerful than his height makes seem possible. ... Uses his natural low center of gravity and impressive lower body strength to generate significant yardage after initial contact. ... Secure hands out of the backfield. ... Physical blocker who isn't afraid to face up the pass rusher. ... Negatives: Obvious size concerns. ... Lacks prototype breakaway speed, especially for a runner of his size. ... Physical blocker, but simply lacks the size to consistently hold up against NFL pass rushers. ... Has lost some tread on his tires with 910 rushing attempts over the last three years -- the second highest total in Big East history.
