Strong Points

Has adequate NFL RB size. More quick and explosive than fast. Very productive at the MAC level. Had a very strong Senior Bowl week. Runs low and with power, can gets yards after contact. Has good hands, is a reliable receiver and a willing pass blocker.

Weak Points

What is his real size? Played at over 220 at Toledo, got down to 208 for the Senior Bowl and was 216 at the Combine. Did not run well at Indy (4.62). More of a nickel and dime runner and lacks breakaway ability. While he is a willing pass blocker he needs work on technique and positioning. In the Toledo scheme, many runs are lateral to the line then he cuts up when he sees a seam.

The Way We See It

A very productive player at the MAC level but I see him as a backup in the NFL. He has size, strength and power but he is not an overly creative runner. Got some long runs in college but I doubt you will see those in the NFL. He is not a very elusive guy but he does run hard and can get yards after contact. The type who can play a role and play it well as long as he doesn't have to be the No. 1 back.
