BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons awarded All-Conference honors after each campaign. Senior-year totals included 281/1414/12 on the ground with 29/262 as a pass-catcher. Posted 1210 rushing yards as a junior. Experienced as a return specialist.

POSITIVES: Slippery scatback with good ball-carrying instincts. Patient, runs low to the ground, and finds the open lanes. Displays a burst and squeezes through the tight openings of the defense. Quick-footed, elusive, and makes defenders miss. Runs with balance and body control.

NEGATIVES: Undersized, lacks strength in his ball-carrying, and easily taken down at the point. Must pick up the intensity as a blocker.

ANALYSIS: Dawson is an instinctive skill player with good ball-carrying and pass-catching skills. He nicely projects as a third-down back.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
