BIO: Led the team in rushing as a senior posting 219/900/7 and adding 23/270 as a pass catcher. All-Conference selection as a junior when he started just four times yet led the team on the ground with 153/870/10.
POSITIVES: Underrated ball carrier with solid instincts. Sees the field and wedges through the small openings. Slides off defenders, displays a burst of speed and runs with good pad level. Flashes power and the ability to pick up yardage off initial contact. Cognizant blocker and effective catching the ball out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Does too much east\west running rather than taking it up the field. Lacks the speed to beat defenders around the corner. Must pick up his blocking intensity.
ANALYSIS: Possessing adequate size\speed numbers, Rhodes has possibilities as a spot-starter in the NFL if he fine-tunes his game.
