Scouting Report
Assets: A great playmaking featured back who was supremely patient and instinctive running the football. Also a big, strong, powerful runner. Did an exceptional job of finding holes and powering through them, and didn't go down easily. Showed nice hands and skills as a receiver too, making him a complete go-to option.
Flaws: Injury-prone to the point of fragility. Didn't possess jets and shiftiness in the open field, and his physical style didn't help with his durability issues. Wasn't a top-tier route runner as a receiving back.
Career Potential: Pro Bowl tailback.
