Daniel Herron
Round 6, Pick 191
Position: RB
Class:  Sr
School: Ohio State
HT: 5'9"
WT: 202 lbs.
40 Time: 4.57
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a junior. Played in just seven games last season after serving a suspension for his role in the Ohio State tattoo scandal. Finished the year with 134 attempts/675 yards/3 TDs on the ground after posting 216/1155/16 the prior year.

Positives: Quick-footed ballcarrier who is best running between the tackles. Sees the field, finds running lanes and effectively uses his blocks. Keeps his feet moving on contact, displays elusiveness and falls forward when tackled.

Negatives: Must pick up the blocking intensity. Shows hesitation in his game. Average receiver out of the backfield. Lacks top speed.

Analysis: Herron has shown flashes of skill the past two seasons yet never displayed enough ability to project as a featured runner for the next level. He could be effective as a rotational runner on an NFL roster.

Projection: 6th
