BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a sophomore and junior. Played in nine games last season posting 125/436/20. Career-best numbers of 178/1,098/15 came as a junior, with pass-catching totals of 50/490/6.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized ball carrier who is best between the tackles. Displays good vision, finds the running lanes and has a burst. Sets up blocks, is aggressive and strong in his lower body. Solid receiver who makes the reception in stride.
NEGATIVES: Not an elusive back who makes defenders miss. Lacks the speed to get around the corner.
ANALYSIS: A leader by example who has made football a priority, Pope offers potential as a special-teams player/fourth running back in the NFL.
