Scouting Report
Assets: A big-play threat on every touch. Has exceptional pure running skills and excellent size, and uses those tools to maximum effect. Gets to full speed quickly and can plow through tackles. Has great vision and cutback ability and is very patient. Flashes decent hands.
Flaws: Ball security is his biggest drawback. Off-field issues now dog him. Takes lots of hits and pounding, leading to frequent injuries (although he often plays through them). A poor pass blocker and mediocre route runner out of the backfield.
Career Potential: Aging superstar tailback with issues.
