Speed
7.00
He is not overly fast and if I had to time it, he probably runs in the 4.5s maybe even low 4.6's.
Elusiveness
6.50
He is very quick but is more of a one-cut runner. He will make one sharp cut and take it upfield rather than multiple jukes.
Run Power
6.70
Due to his short stature, he can run underneath defenders and lowers his shoulder against smaller DBs
Finesse
7.00
His ability to one cut is outstanding it's explosive and he changes direction very well.
Pass Catching
5.50
Did not see him catch it often but over time that might change in the NFL. He will need to open up his versatility as he is a 3rd down back.
Vision
8.00
He has really outstanding vision and is able to see the open lanes. This is a reason for his ultra production throughout his college career.
Running in Traffic
7.70
it's really good due to his acceleration through the hole when he sees the opening.
Durability
8.00
I did not come across any major injuries.
Strength
6.50
He is stronger than he looks
Size
6.50
5'9 195 which is small. But he plays RB so it is not horrible. He has got a low center of gravity.
Productivity
10.0
He has been one of the most productive RB's in College FB through the last 3 seasons.
Blocking
5.00
I did not see much pass blocking from him.
Intangibles
7.50
He can be a very effective RB if he is put in the right system.
Toughness
7.00
He is willing to carry the load if he has to every game
Character
5.00
I have not met him personally so I can not judge.
Consistency
8.80
He just puts up big numbers each and every week.
Big Play Ability
9.00
It seems like every time he touches the ball he is going to take it to the house.
Strengths
An explosive one-cut runner with unreal production. He will run through defenders due to his low center of gravity and longer defenders will miss him high. He has good agility and accelerates very quickly through the hole. He also has good vision and does not hesitate.
Weaknesses
Not a patient runner. A lot of his success is due to the offensive line opening up massive holes for him to go through. he will not overpower defenders head-on as well. His biggest concern is his lack of an extra gear. He has got one speed and elite acceleration but he does not have elite speed.
Overall Analysis
I think he has got a chance to go on Day 2 of the NFL Draft and he will be a really good RB in the right system. He is not the fastest RB or the biggest but he is the most productive. Rounds( Early to late 3rd) Team Fits ( Cowboys, Patriots, 49ers)
