BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who totaled 176/715/3 on the ground last season and added eight receptions. Led the team in rushing and receiving as a junior posting 227/1170/2 on the ground and 35/261 as a pass-catcher. Experienced return specialist.

POSITIVES: Undersized ball-carrier with the ability to create yardage. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and possesses the speed and agility to cut the corner. Elusive, makes defenders miss, and follows blocks everywhere on the field. Runs low to the ground and gets lost behind linemen. Solid pass-catcher out of the backfield.

NEGATIVES: Runs with a tentative style and gathers into tackles. Must improve his ball security, as he was prone to fumbling last season. Gives marginal effort as a blocker.

ANALYSIS: Markey is an instinctive ball-carrier and he projects to a third-down back at the next level. He does not do the little things well and has never lived up to expectations, which will make it difficult for him.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
