BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who was hampered with a hamstring injury last season. Totaled just 82/355/3 in 12 games. Junior-year totals included 174/837/4 after 189/807/5 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Strong interior ball-carrier who picks up the tough yards. Breaks the first tackle, picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact, and falls forward when tackled. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and finds the running lanes. Displays the ability to weave through the traffic, follows blocks everywhere on the field, and picks up positive yardage.

NEGATIVES: Shows marginal speed and a minimal burst through the hole. Not a creative runner who makes defenders miss. Cannot turn the corner.

ANALYSIS: Whitworth possesses the size and strength to be a short-yardage specialist at the next level. His ability to catch the ball is added value.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
