 Marvin Townes Grade: 3
 Position: HB
 Class: Sr
 School: East Carolina
 Conference: C-USA
 Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 200
 40 Time: 4.63

BIO: Used in a reserve role as a senior and posted just 87/235/1 on the ground while adding seven receptions. Second team All-Conference selection the prior year after career numbers of 258/1,128/8, when he started 11 games.

POSITIVES: Patient back with good instincts. Waits for blocks to develop, quick through the hole and displays explosion carrying the ball. Picks his spots, slides off defenders and displays footwork in a small area. Has the speed to get outside around the corner. Aggressive, works runs and falls forward when tackled.

NEGATIVES: More of a straight-line ballcarrier who loses balance when he must immediately change direction. Cannot quickly cut back against the grain. Marginal blocker who tends to go at defenders feet rather than face up into opponents.

ANALYSIS: Built more like a receiver, Townes has flashed ability carrying the ball yet took a step back as a senior. Could catch on as a third-down back if he improves his pass-catching skills.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
