BIO: All-Conference selection who became a full-time starter last season, leading the team on the ground with 250/1,454/12. Also added five receptions with another score. Third team All-Conference choice the prior year when he backed up Tatum Bell, finishing with 918 yards and six touchdowns. Spent time in the Colorado Rockies farm system before entering OSU. Will be 25 years old by draft day.
POSITIVES: Explosive straight line running back with excellent power. Runs with forward lean, displays a burst of speed and quick through the hole. Stays on his feet off the initial hit and continues up the field, picking up positive yardage and running with excellent balance. Breaks the first tackle and carries the pile, picks up yardage off initial contact. Displays top first-step quickness and can switch it on. Controls the games and can also break them open with long runs from the line of scrimmage.
NEGATIVES: Does not display top lateral speed and has difficulty if he must immediately change direction. Does not create and has difficulty running east/west. Must improve his blocking techniques. Ran poorly during his pro-day workout.
ANALYSIS: A well-sized, explosive ballcarrier, Morency possesses top physical skills for the next level. Lacks flexibility and is a ballcarrier who needs room to work, yet he should produce for an offense that rotates ballcarriers.
