BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his freshman season. Rushed for more than 1,000 yards the past four years in college, posting career numbers of 226/1375/19 as a senior while adding 24/259 as a pass catcher. Junior ground totals included 180/1,021/7 after 223/1,193/10 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Fenroy was an ultra-productive running back at Louisiana Lafayette who also did a solid job catching the ball out of the backfield. He lacks the great physical skills for the next level, yet his production cannot be dismissed and may help him catch on as a third-down back/situational runner in the NFL.

NEGATIVES: Not a strong back who breaks tackles or picks up much yardage off initial contact. Lacks the blinding speed for a smallish ball carrier.

ANALYSIS: Small, instinctive back who's been very productive on the college level. Runs with a low center of gravity, effectively uses his blocks everywhere on the field, and immediately finds the running lanes. Shows a burst through the hole, uses an effective straight arm to keep defenders away, and keeps his feet driving up the field. Fluid, and quickly cuts back in a small area. Workhorse back with more than 800 carries on the college level. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
