Strong Points

Speed! Patient runner who has an excellent burst once he finds an open lane. Quick-footed type who can stop and go. Can make a cut in the hole. Has the speed to take it the distance. Good hands, reliable receiver.

Weak Points

Size; has a lean frame and minimal growth potential. Has never been the lead guy, always been a rotational back or role player. Average blocker. Can he withstand the rigors of more than a handful of touches a game?

The Way We See It

Was on his way to perhaps his best season when he suffered a severe ankle sprain. Missed three games and was never the same player the rest of the season. Needs to add some bulk and strength for the next level. That he was at USC will alleviate some of the concern about his never stepping out and becoming the lead guy who could demand the ball. Because of his speed, he has a chance to be a role-playing third back. Has to prove he can be effective on special teams if he wants that role. Has talent and speed and that always helps.
