Ballard is a big back who was productive throughout his time at Mississippi State. He is very effective running between the tackles. He is also athletic in space and understands blocking in the pass game, traits that could make him a reliable third-down option. He will probably be able to contribute immediately in pass protection, which will likely entice a running back-needy team to take him in one of the later rounds.
