Roy Helu   #26 RB

Height: 5-11   Weight: 220   Age: 27

Born: 12/7/1988 Danville , CA

College: Nebraska

Experience: 5th season

High School: San Ramon Valley HS [Danville, CA]









Draft 2011

Pick No.105

Selected By: Washington Redskins

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 8 (105)

Pick Analysis: Helu has enough size and speed to serve as a backup but probably won't be a full-time load back in the NFL. Isn't your prototypical inbetween-the-tackles or game-breaking back. Runs hard but doesn't pick up as many yards after contact as you'd like to see. Can get to the perimeter and get headed vertically but doesn't have home-run speed or great elusiveness. Somewhat of a liability in passing situations. Not a polished route-runner, hands are only average, and doesn't protect the passer with much technique or passion. Helu's still a big back who can run and should be selected on Day 3.
