Scouting Report
Assets: Has the raw tools to be a star starting NFL tailback: top-end speed, superb size and strength, and good field vision. Pretty patient, follows blocking well, makes quick cuts, and battles for yards. Possesses good open-field breakaway speed, and provides a nice receiving target. Can also return kicks.
Flaws: Runs too upright off the snap, making himself too big a target for tacklers and getting off-balance too often. Not the type of creative runner who will make tacklers miss. Lacks extensive experience both as a starter and against top competition, and is still learning the role.
Career Potential: Physically gifted tailback with solid upside.
