Scouting Report
Gets rare burst and acceleration out of the backfield. Follows his blocking well, usually finds a hole, then powers up downfield. A smashmouth downhill runner who likes contact (which also helps him as a blocker) and he uses his good size well to lay the lumber for extra yardage. Plays with excellent intensity. Also has big hands for receptions and ball security. Doesn't always display patience running the ball, and can be too decisive at times (running into tackling). A bit of a one-cut type of runner (although it's an explosive first cut) who gets a bit too upright, takes too much contact, and sometimes over-commits. Not yet a top receiving back, despite solid tools. Needs to stay out of off-field trouble.
Long Range Potential: Star featured running back.
