 Earl Charles Grade: 3.15
 Position: HB
 Class: Jr
 School: Marshall
 Conference: MAC
 Ht., Wt.: 5-10, 206
 40 Time: 4.65

BIO: Junior college transfer who made an immediate at Marshall. Posted 177/824/5 as a senior after 241/1,578/19 the prior year. Has added 37 receptions the past two seasons.

POSITIVES: Tough, inside-running ballcarrier who combines vision and instincts to get the job done. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and runs with an aggressive style. Bounces it around piles, drives up the field and picks up yardage off initial contact. Falls forward when tackled and works runs. Carries the ball with good balance.

NEGATIVES: Not an explosive runner that can turn it on or run away from opponents. Cannot immediately change direction or create. Lacks the soft and natural hands as a receiver.

ANALYSIS: A hard-working interior ballcarrier that does the little things well, Charles lacks the size/speed numbers to be anything more than a situational back at the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
