Strong Points

Quick, fast and elusive with outstanding vision and instincts. Great production to go along with very good durability. Good hands and a good route runner. If he gets a seam, he can break it. Willing blocker.

Weak Points

Doesn't have ideal size and he won't get any bigger. Has no history of return work at San Diego State. While he is tough, his lack of size and strength limit his after-contact ability. He can get overpowered as a pass blocker.

The Way We See It

Impressive college player but his lack of size limits what he will be able to do at the next level. Players of his size with limited or no return ability are tough to project. He will have to be a situational back put in the right situations. Interested clubs will hope that he can return kicks, as he has very limited return work while in college. If he can add 10 pounds of muscle and show some special athletic traits at Combine and Pro Day, he can be a late-round guy who will have a chance if he gets drafted by the right team. His key will be landing with a club willing to devote a roster spot to a guy who may only give them a handful of special situational plays a game.
