BIOGRAPHY: Moved into the starting lineup as a true freshman and posted career-high rushing numbers of 234/1087/4 with 13/100/1 as a pass-catcher. Missed the 2004 campaign with leg injuries. Sophomore-year running totals included 190/819/9 with 26/144 catching the ball. Played in 11 games last season, yet carried the ball just two times and caught three passes.
POSITIVES: Once a highly rated prospect, his college career has been marred by injury. Patient ball-carrier who waits for blocks to develop and will pick his spots on the inside. Displays good vision, instincts, and power. Runs hard, breaks tackles, and falls forward for extra yardage. Solid receiver out of the backfield who adjusts well to the errant throw.
NEGATIVES: Has had leg, ankle, and knee injuries, which have limited his time the past two seasons.
ANALYSIS: Hamilton is a medical risk at this point, yet he possesses the innate skills to play at the next level. Should he ever stay healthy on a consistent basis he could contribute to a team.
