Scouting Report
Assets: A hard-charging one-cut runner who could get out in the open field quickly. A tenacious, smashmouth inside ball-carrier who kept his legs churning on contact, gave good extra effort, and would bounce off tacklers. Flashed decent hands as a receiver.
Flaws: Ran somewhat upright and didn't have much patience or fluidity, leading to a lot of contact (and contributing to his durability issues). Sometimes decided on his cuts too quickly and ran into tackling. Had some ball security issues.
Career Potential: Talented tailback with consistency issues.
