BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who began his college career at cornerback. All-Conference and All-American selection as a senior after totaling 398/1945/35 on the ground and adding 55/554/4 as a pass-catcher in 15 games. Led the conference in all-purpose yards as a sophomore when he totaled 1205 yards on the ground and added 414 yards as a receiver.
POSITIVES: Short, hard-running scatback who produces carrying the ball or catching it. Patient, waits for blocks develop, and finds the running lanes. Shows outstanding vision, picks up blocking assignments, and works runs on the inside. Runs with an aggressive style, putting his shoulders into opponents. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Runs with an upright style, takes a lot of hard hits, and does not pick up much yardage off initial contact. Cannot run to daylight in the open field. Has a history of injuries which caused him to miss time.
ANALYSIS: Cuff is a versatile ball-carrier with good football instincts. Stepped up to the plate and produced as a senior, exceeding the expectations of NFL scouts. Potentially a late-round pick, has a real shot to make a team as a third-down back.
