BIO: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Finished with 193/1,021/9 on the ground as a senior, adding 15/161 receptions. Posted career rushing numbers of 1,586 yards and 15 touchdowns as a freshman.
POSITIVES: Undersized yet productive back with good ball carrying intangibles. Patient, displays good vision and follows blocks. Quick footed and immediately cuts back against the grain or changes direction on a dime. Has a burst through the hole. Willing blocker who picks up stunts or twists thrown by defenders.
NEGATIVES: Easily goes down on the first hit and not a runner who breaks tackles or picks up yardage off initial contact. Lacks the speed to run to daylight. Has watched his production slowly diminish after a tremendous freshman campaign.
ANALYSIS: Lacking the ideal size/speed numbers for the next level, Fuqua's only shot is as a third-down back in the NFL. Previous experience as a kick returner will come in handy.
