Jeff Demps
Position: RB
Class:  Sr
School: Florida
HT: 5'8"
WT: 191 lbs.
40 Time: 4.32
Conference: SEC
Biography: Part-time starter since his freshman season. Senior totals included 98 attempts/569 yards/6 touchdowns on the ground and 16/172 as a receiver. Also averaged 32.5 yards on 11 kick returns. Junior totals included 92/551/3 on the ground with 18 receptions. Posted a career-high 745 yards rushing as a sophomore. Two-time defending NCAA indoor 60 meter champion. Recently announced his intention to forgo the NFL and focus on 2012 Olympics.

Positives: Versatile skill player with the potential to be a third-down back at the next level. Fast, beats defenders around the corner and quickly gets to top gear. Solid pass catcher who easily adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception away from his frame. Shifty runner who displays terrific quickness in his game and the ability to create yardage.

Negatives: Not a strong ballcarrier and can be easily tackled by a single defender. Minimally productive in college.

Analysis: Demps is a tremendous athlete who did a solid job translating his sprinter?s speed on to the football field. He possesses the skills to be used as a ballcarrier, slot receiver and return specialist, but he has put his football career on hold for the Olympics.

Projection: FA
