Strong Points

Exceptional overall athlete, with speed, change of direction, balance and foot quickness. Very productive with 4,464 yards and 46 rushing TDs in three seasons. Also has 79 receptions. Plays with good strength. Very quick to the hole with excellent vision and decision-making skills. Runs low, is explosive on contact and gets yards after contact. Home-run hitter. Reliable receiver and route runner. Willing pass and run blocker. Very nifty and elusive. Excellent stop and go, can make people miss on all levels.

Weak Points

Size; does he have the frame to hold up in the NFL for multiple seasons? Needs work on pass-block technique.

The Way We See It

Has made an impact since his freshman year. Has great speed, athleticism and run instincts. Capable of taking it to the house on any given play. Lack of size is a concern. Has been durable in college but will he hold up over a period of time in the NFL? Should be an instant contributor as a rookie and can be used in a variety of ways. Similar in size, speed and style to C.J. Spiller when he came out of Clemson. Will be drafted high and be productive, but longevity is a concern. This kid is talented.
