Biography: Saw significant action the past three seasons, including starting 12 games as a junior in Mississippi's rotational system. Senior totals included 36/133/1 on the ground. Career rushing totals of 140/647/3 with 10/82/2 as a pass catcher came during his junior season.
Positives: Nice-sized skill player who can be used in a variety of roles. Runs with an aggressive attitude, puts his shoulders into defenders and falls forward when tackled. Displays a burst of straight-line speed, runs low to the ground and underneath his pads. Keeps his feet moving on contact. Solid receiver out of the backfield.
Negatives: Not an elusive ball-carrier who creates yardage. Loses a lot of momentum when he must immediately alter his angle of attack.
Analysis: Eason has the build of a fullback though he was asked to carry the ball at Mississippi. Needs to add a few more pounds to his frame and prove his worth as a lead blocker to have a home at the next level.
