Strong Points

Good speed with a burst. Plays faster than timed. Used as a running back and flexed out as a wide receiver. Good open-field running skills, can make people miss and break the long run. Has very good hands and also returns punts.

Weak Points

Is not and can't be an every-down running back. Though he weighs 215, he plays like a 200-pound guy. He is not powerful and is not the type to get much yardage after contact. A lot of his yardage comes outside and he is not a top between the tackles runner.

The Way We See It

Has played at three different schools. Originally enrolled at Alabama and redshirted there as a true freshman. He then transferred to Hutchinson CC (Kansas) and then finally Tennessee. While he was very productive at Tennessee, he was a role player there and that's what he will be in the NFL. He does not get much yardage inside and on many of his runs, he runs laterally to the line until he finds a seam and then cuts up. A runner can't do that in the NFL. Still he has good open field run skills and has the talent to break long runs. Yes, he is talented, but how high do you take a role player? That's up to each team to decide. A bit of a wild-card selection.
