Player Notes Pros

 

  • Great speed for a big man, has the ability to pull away in the open field

  • Very physical back, downhill runner who embraces contact

  • Excellent goal line and short yardage back, keeps legs churning

  • Nearly impossible to bring down in the open field with a head of steam

  • Unbelievable size, speed, power, combination. NFL size and physicality

  • Violent stiff arm allows him to fight off defenders, maximizing yardage

  • Patient behind the line of scrimmage until holes open up, then explodes through them

  • Great in pass protection as he is bigger and stronger than most defenders

  • Improved as a pass catcher the past two years, showing he is a capable receiver

  • Decent footwork, agility, and burst for someone who is 250lbs  

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Lacks elusiveness, depends on being a bruiser and playing physical

  • Doesn't possess elite speed, or high end acceleration

  • Not much of a big play threat, likely early down thumper in the NFL

  • Very little experience in the passing game, and on third downs
