Pros: He has fine initial quickness to the line of scrimmage with lateral cutting skills to change directions and cutback ability to hit an opening along the line. Gets to the second level easily with the ability to get outside. Has the body type to succeed as a pro runner. He is very adept at picking his holes with the acceleration through the line to break into the secondary. He can make a play on the perimeter after the catch and follows his blockers well in the open field. Cons: Whether he has the power and toughness to pound inside with any type of consistency at the NFL level remains to be seen, especially as a game-to-game performer. As a receiver, he has sure hands and the ability to run routes, especially screen passes, though he's still raw in many aspects of that role. He has little exposure to picking up the blitz and needs to begin with all the fundamentals in that aspect of the game. Numbers: As a senior, he carried 205 times for 1120 yards and a fine 5.5 yards-per-carry average and seven TDs, with 25 receptions for 141 yards and a TD. At the Combine, he ran a 4.53 with 29 reps in the lifting, a 35-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 11-inch broad jump and a good effort in the agility drills.
