BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his sophomore and junior campaigns. Senior rushing totals were 210/835/0 with 23/130/1 receiving. Career-best rushing totals of 239/1,242/3 and receiving numbers of 29/132 came as a junior.
POSITIVES: Well-built ball carrier coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Runs low to the ground, has a burst through the hole and displays strength in his running. Quickly cuts back into the open lanes, weaves through traffic and waits for blocks to develop.
NEGATIVES: Did not consistently play smart football as a senior, with too much East/West dancing last season as opposed to taking it up the field. Better between the tackles and does not show the ability to cut.
ANALYSIS: Handed a first-day draft grade prior to his senior campaign, Darby watched his stock slip the past seven months. Could be a steal in the middle rounds if he gets his game back on track or he may be looking for a new line of work.
