Cedric Houston - HB

 Cedric Houston Grade: 3.47
 Position: HB
 Class: Sr
 School: Tennessee
 Conference: SEC
 Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 225
 40 Time: 4.55
  Selected by: New York Jets
  Round 6, pick 8 (182 overall)

BIO: All-Conference selection who.s been the Volunteer.s primary ballcarrier since his sophomore campaign. Posted career numbers of 181/1,005/8 on the ground as a senior, adding 16/180/1 as a pass catcher.

POSITIVES: Athletic ballcarrier with excellent size/speed numbers. Quick footed, cuts back in a small area and makes defenders miss. Runs with authority through the holes, displays a burst, and possesses the speed to get outside of tackle. Squirts through the small openings in the defense, strong in his lower body and keeps his feet off the initial hit or falls forward when tackled. Aggressively puts his shoulders into opponents. Fluid in all aspects. Adequate pass catcher out of the backfield.

NEGATIVES: Not an overly instinctive ballcarrier and not decisive taking handoffs. Not overly elusive carrying the ball. Must be more concerned with ball security.

ANALYSIS: A well-built running back with a large upside, at times Houston looks better then he actually plays. To this point, better athlete than football player, yet his physical skills will get him considered in the middle rounds.

PROJECTION: Mid Fifth Round
