Scouting Report
Assets: 'Beast Mode' is a uniquely explosive power runner: has a rare second gear mid-run, leaving tacklers in his wake while fighting tooth and nail for every yard. Employs great power and balance and is a constant threat for major yardage because he simply refuses to go down. Possesses enough speed for the home run rush. Pretty clutch too.
Flaws: Isn't much of a receiving option out of the backfield. Can be streaky. Has been in some off-field trouble, and regularly has run-ins with the media. Is somewhat injury-prone due to his incredibly physical style, and he's aging.
Career Potential: Superstar power back (when healthy and focused).
