BIO: Former linebacker that's been a lead fullback the past two seasons. Carried the ball 83/290/5 while adding nine receptions. Split time between fullback and linebacker in 2002. Named MVP of the Blue-Gray game on Christmas Day.
POSITIVES: Aggressive, hard-working prospect that attacks all his assignments. Blocks with good intelligence, squares into defenders and displays pop at the point. Puts his shoulders down either blocking or carrying the football and works to finish plays. Adequate hands out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Not quick off the snap into his blocks, lacks the speed to get outside around tackle and does not show good body adjustment.
ANALYSIS: After being moved around the field the past two seasons, Leach may have finally found a home and a position for the next level. Needs to improve his overall game but has good size for fullback and is starting to show himself to be a triple-threat player at the position.
