BIOGRAPHY: Thrust into the starting role last year and produced career-high numbers of 243/1329/10 on the ground while adding 21/128 as a pass-catcher.
POSITIVES: Small, elusive back with the ability to create yardage. Runs low to the ground, gets lost behind blockers, and displays terrific vision. Has a burst through the hole, runs hard on the inside, and weaves through the traffic. Sets up defenders, makes them miss, and quickly cuts back against the grain without losing much momentum.
NEGATIVES: Not a ball-carrier who picks up yardage off initial contact. Marginally productive until last season.
ANALYSIS: Kinlaw has limited size, yet he showed enough ability last season that teams will now consider him as a third-down back.
