BIO: Part-time starter used at both tailback and fullback for the Spartans. Played in nine games as a senior carrying 125 times for 592 yards, with four scores. Suspended from the team in November after being arrested, then pleading guilty to charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. Subsequently sen10ced to 20 days in jail. Started eight games at fullback in 2001 carrying the ball 25-93-0 after 31-81-3 the prior year. Totaled only seven receptions in his college career.

POSITIVES: Powerfully built fullback who must learn to do the little things to be successful. Runs well for a big man, keeps his feet driving forward and displays vision as both a runner or lead blocker. Breaks arm tackles and solid short yardage runner. Jolts opponents or staggers them and takes defenders out of the play when focused on his blocking assignments.

NEGATIVES: Not quick or explosive, slows into his blocks and not skilled outside of tackle. Displayed flashes in college but not much consistency.

ANALYSIS: Marginal late round pick coming into the season but a sub-par campaign, coupled with off-the-field incidents now makes him a fringe free agent prospect.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
