Player Notes Pros

 

  • Brings explosive athleticism to the runningback position, very agile & elusive 

  • Used in a variety of ways in the pass game, succeeds when flexed out on the perimeter 

  • He is a threat to score whenever he gets the ball in space due to incredible burst 

  • Regularly puts defenders in tough positions when he catches the ball on check downs 

  • In the run game, he is a dynamic, explosive back who runs with a strong lower base 

  • He has demonstrated the ability to get upfield quickly & runs tough between the tackles

  • Incredible acceleration after initial contact, excellent contact balance as well

  • Explosive speed, short area agility & athleticism, is always a threat to go the distance 

  • He has demonstrated the skill set to be a very effective 3 down back in the NFL

  • Slippery runner with nice urgency & aggressiveness when working into open spaces

  • Best on wide zone RPO concepts that allow him to get outside & work one cut upfield 

  • Carries good mass in his trunk to withstand glancing blows while running with velocity

  • Makes defenders miss with high step frequency, solid contact balance, & great agility

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Run with inclination to always get outside, causesing him to miss some cuts & yardage 

  • Most NFL teams implement run game from the pistol, may struggle with decisiveness

  • He can certainly afford to be a little more consistent as a face up pass protector, as well

  • Questionable vision & decision-making at times, which leads to some disappointing reps

  • Unreliable reading leverage on first level blocks, which forces him into tight gaps

  • Low ceiling candidate for bell cow touches & conscripts him into change of pace roles
