Strong Points

Very productive the past two seasons with 2,736 yards and 28 touchdowns. Quick starter with excellent vision/instincts. Good jump-cutter and quick-footed. Finds the open seam and cutback lanes. Has a burst to daylight. Good with stop and go. Runs with power and consistently gets yardage after contact. Can make people miss in tight or in the open field. Equally good inside or outside. Reliable pass receiver and a willing pass blocker.

Weak Points

Needs to get a little bigger and stronger (closer to 220). Needs work on pass-block technique. Needs work on pass routes.

The Way We See It

I like this player's running style. It's similar to Matt Forte's style in that he has a quick jump inside. These types of runners generally make good NFL running backs. While he is a reliable receiver, he will need work on his pass routes and pass blocking. I like his toughness and competitive attitude. Makes plays when they are needed. I see him as a rotational back as a rookie and a starter by Year Two. Has very good upside.
