BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who led Missouri in rushing last season with 186/1039/12 while also adding seven receptions. Junior-year numbers included 193/1063/7. Has a history of shoulder injuries.

POSITIVES: Hard-running ball-carrier with limited size and potential. Runs low to the ground, gets lost behind blockers, and displays outstanding open-field running skills. Keeps his feet moving, picks up yardage off initial contact, and strong for his size. Works runs, displays good vision, and shows the ability to bounce around piles and defenders.

NEGATIVES: Cannot run to daylight in the open field. Not a creative or elusive runner. Marginal production as a pass-catcher.

ANALYSIS: Temple is a marginally sized ball-carrier who benefited from the wide-open system he played in at Missouri. He could make it as a third-down back if he improves his pass-catching skills.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
