Has excellent size and frame. Very good athlete with quick feet, play speed and a burst. Has excellent balance. Quick to the hole with good vision/instincts. Is creative with cutback ability. Runs with strength and power and good lean, consistently gets yards after contact. Reliable as a pass receiver, soft hands, can adjust to the ball. Good blocker, can face up and anchor.

Weak Points

Not a burner. Was selfish and immature after the Michigan State loss. Is he a real team player?

A third-year junior entering the draft. Has been the bell cow at Ohio State. Has a running style conducive to success in the NFL. Strong and powerful inside with creativity and cutback ability. Consistently gets yards after contact. Very quick-footed with quick change of direction and a burst. Reliable as a receiver with soft hands and run-after skills. Excellent blocker especially in the pass game. Will start right away, better than Melvin Gordon last year.
