Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors last season after posting career ground numbers of 281/1697/17 while also adding 17/196/3 as a receiver. Put up 108/734/5 on the ground and 14/177/2 as a receiver in 2009.
Positives: "Nice-sized interior ball carrier who shows the ability to pick up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, displays a burst of speed and the ability to make defenders miss in a small area. Easily runs around tackle, keeps his feet moving on contact, and falls forward when tackled. Uses an effective straight arm to keep runs alive, displays solid football instincts, and slides through the small creases of the defense. Rarely brought down by a single defender. Is a solid receiver out of the backfield."
Negatives: Loses a lot of momentum when he must quickly change direction. Not a creative ball carrier. Does not consistently run with an aggressive style. Effective when he gives effort blocking yet not consistent in that area. Cannot run to daylight in the open field. Has an upright running style that leads to a lot of heavy hits.
Analysis: "Leshoure is a tough interior ball carrier who proved himself as a workhorse at the college level. He'll fit a variety of offenses at the next level, and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield is an added benefit."
