Strong Points

Adequate RB size. Very good initial quickness and vision. Real good decision-maker. Powerful runner for his size, breaks tackles and gets yards after contact. Big-play guy. Excellent effort. Good hands. Durable. Ran for more than 1,400 yards in only eight games.

Weak Points

"Retired" from football after Game Two, then came back after missing four games. Has fumbled some. Not used much as a receiver. Pass protection. Has played at three different schools.

The Way We See It

Double transfer, started out at UConn, then transferred to a JC after one year. After a season at the JC, he transferred to Utah. Backup in 2015 then played sparingly at the start of 2016. "Retired" because he wasn't playing. Came back after missing four games and took off. Ran for 1,332 yards and 10 TDs in the final seven games. He is strong, quick and fast to go along with good power and vision. Where he gets drafted is a question mark. Interviews will be huge as teams will need to know if he is committed to the game. Probably will get selected later than his talent level, but has the talent to be a starter in the league.
