Summary

He has outstanding speed and breakaway capabilities, and he does an excellent job of blasting through the hole and breaking it to the outside. He has had some injury problems and durability and toughness may be a small question by some NFL teams.. He is not real elusive and gets hit a lot, and doesn’t break quite as many tackles as he should for a big back. He is very explosive and capable of turning a game around. He is somewhat a big guy with speed. He has not had much experience as a blocker or as a receiver coming out of the backfield, and these are two areas that he will need to develop. However, his size and speed make him a very interesting guy on draft day.
