BIO: Former Colorado transfer awarded All-Conference honors as a junior after posting 348/1,636/22 on the ground with 53/571/2 catching the ball. Led Colorado as a sophomore with 810 rushing yards.
POSITIVES: Shifty ball-handler with a variety of skills. Runs with a great degree of patience, follows blocks everywhere on the field and quickly gets through small openings. Runs low to the ground and gets lost behind blockers. Elusive and makes defenders miss. Works runs using an effective straight-arm to keep tacklers away. Seamless receiver out of the backfield who has soft, natural hands. Displays excellent first-step quickness and a burst of speed.
NEGATIVES: Marginally strong carrying the ball and can be easily brought down at the point of attack. More of a one-speed back who does run to daylight.
ANALYSIS: Productive handling the ball, Calhoun is perfectly suited as a third-down back/situational runner in the NFL. Could see spot duty as a starter, yet may never be the big-time feature runner he was in college.
