Scouting Report
A scatback-type rusher who packs a deceptively large payload and a wealth of football know-how in a small package, he brings big-play potential to every snap and piles up yardage as a dual rushing/receiving threat. Can power through the line or make defenders miss on option routes. Is a complete and versatile athlete with experience at multiple positions; he played quarterback in high school and college, while also returning kicks and subbing as a defensive back. Is not ideally suited to lead-back duties because he can be a bit too injury-prone. Is already dealing with knee issues.
Long Range Potential: Dynamic, multi-purpose running back, when healthy.
