Joseph Addai - RB

 Joseph Addai Grade: 4.06
 Position: RB
 Class: Sr
 School: Louisiana State
 Conference: Southeastern
 Ht., Wt.: 5-11.5, 214
 40 Time: 4.41
  Selected by: Indianapolis Colts
  Round 1, pick 30 (30 overall)

BIO: LSU.s feature back as a senior after sporadically playing with the first team the prior two years. Rushing totals included 187/911/9 with 20/180/1 receiving. Posted 680 yards on the ground as a junior and career-best receiving numbers of 26/294/4.

POSITIVES: Explosive running back moving up draft boards. Patient runner with outstanding instincts, vision and speed. Makes defenders miss in the open field, deceptively strong and breaks tackles. Keeps his feet moving up the field and in short-yardage situations. Fast enough to beat defenders around the corner. Solid receiver who adjusts to the errant throw and catches the pass with his hands.

NEGATIVES: Runs with an upright style. Marginally productive as a blocker.

ANALYSIS: A high-motor player who does the extras to become better, Addai is slowly developing a complete game. Coming off a terrific senior campaign and solid postseason, he is poised to become a starting ball carrier at the next level.
