Scouting Report
Elusive running the football: uses a rare mix of vision and patience to find holes, then has quick feet and deceptive strength creating yardage. Follows his blocking, changes speeds on a dime, and keeps low to bounce off would-be tacklers. Also shows skill catching the ball, and is a good blocker. Despite his consistency gaining yards he's not a home run threat who will run past the defense; works more sideline-to-sideline than up the gut, limiting his big-play potential. Doesn't possess top-end deep speed, and is undersized for an every-down back.
Long Range Potential: Underrated, elusive rotational tailback.
