Southern California's Bush, the AP Player of the...[details]
Pros: Home-run hitter. A fluid runner who has burst through the hole to reach the second level easily with the lateral quickness to retain his speed and get outside. He uses his quick feet and fine vision to make defenders miss and has the separation speed to break away once in the secondary. His strong lower body allows him to break tackles and he finishes his runs well, though his game is much more built on speed and elusiveness than power. Cons: He needs to show both durability and the ability to run inside to earn starting status in the pro ranks. As a receiver, he has shown dependable hands when used in that role, but is still under-developed. He moves easily as a route-runner and catches the ball naturally but needs reps to compete for the third-down role, even though he made fast progress over his final season. He usually picks up his assignments quickly, but will need to show he can handle a blitzing linebacker better to earn regular playing time. Numbers: During the 2005 season, he started 10 games with 255 carries for 1355 yards, a 5.3 yards-per-carry average and 10 TDs with a long play of 93 yards. He caught 15 passes for 158 yards and 1 TD as a receiver. He did not work out at the Combine.
