Strong Points

Quick, fast and explosive. Short but not small, has quick feet and a quick burst. Runs low and runs with power. Runs with very good balance and can be tough to knock off his feet. Shows vision and instincts, can make defenders miss in tight and in space. Very reliable receiver with good hands and works to get open.

Weak Points

Short with short arms (29 inches). Like many short running backs, he can struggle with pass protection. Has already taken a lot of hits, how many more can he take before his level of play decreases? Played at a lower level of competition and the competition level will be much higher in the NFL.

The Way We See It

Reminds me a little of a short back we had in New York when I was a young scout…Joe Morris. Has a similar running style. He is a quick one-cut runner who stays low and can get both the tough yards and break a long run. Shows he is reliable as a receiver and may be effective if flexed out. Will always have trouble with pass protection because of his size. Has to be a role player at the next level but he will be a good one. Get him 10-12 touches a game and he will do something with those touches. Might be a good kickoff returner also.
