Strong Points

Very productive with good vision and instincts. Quick to hole. Runs low. Has good pick and slide and some jump cut skills. Good hands.

Weak Points

Listed as being 219 but plays like a 200-pound guy. Lacks power and gets limited yardage after contact. Not a good pass blocker. Average running back speed. Plays in Mountain West Conference. Not used often in the passing game.

The Way We See It

Very productive player. Ran for over 1,800 yards in 2016 but did little against upper-echelon schools. He has good vision and is a good decision-maker, but he doesn't play with power and plays smaller than he measures. Don't see much after-contact power. While he has great RB production, his receiving numbers are pedestrian. But how many guys can you find with 1,800-plus yard rushing seasons, even in the Mountain West? Needs work on pass protection. He'll be one of those guys with a wide range of grades depending on the eye of the beholder. See him as a backup-only in the NFL unless he has some outstanding workouts.
