The good: Completed another outstanding season in 2006 to cap a brilliant three-year career. He earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors and displayed the skills of an NFL feature back. Has the combination of size, speed, quickness and big-play ability that teams seek in a feature runner. As a receiver, he has shown good hands with nice overall development despite limited opportunities. During the 2006 season, he had 223 carries for 1,356 yards and 11 TDs. He added 34 receptions for 328 yards and four TDs. At the Combine, he ran a 4.46 with 20 reps in the lifting and a 35.5-inch vertical leap.
The bad: Must show durability as a pro and needs work on running routes, picking up blitzes and reading coverage.
Outlook: Has the talent to be a good feature back with minor development as a receiver and blocker. A back with the natural skills to warrant immediate playing time and perhaps start as a rookie. On the short list of the Texans, Bills, Packers and Giants in the first round.
