BIOGRAPHY: Played in six games last season carrying the ball 12 times for 44 yards before being sidelined the rest of the season with knee and ankle ailments. Started nine games as a junior and totaled career-high numbers of 162/798/6 on the ground with 17/116/1 as a pass-catcher. Sat out the 2004 season after tearing a ligament in his left knee.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized interior runner with an injury history. Patient, follows blocks, and runs hard on the inside. Shows power and the ability to break tackles then pick up yardage off initial contact. Uses an effective straight-arm to keep defenders away. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Lacks quickness and speed carrying the ball. Cannot turn the corner or run to daylight. Marginally effective as a blocker.
ANALYSIS: Lumpkin possesses the size to compete for a job at the next level, yet prior knee injuries and poor speed will make it difficult for him to make a roster this summer.
