Scouting Report
Hard-charging as a downhill-running tailback. Reads and follows his blocking well, makes quick cuts, keeps his feet churning, and can make tacklers miss. Doesn't go down without a fight. A good receiver out of the backfield. Can block, and plays bigger than his size. A bit impatient at times and has a tough time outrunning the defense to daylight. Runs with a forward lean and will get off-balance after some cuts. Takes a lot of contact, which raises some question marks about his long-term durability.
Long Range Potential: Polished, hard-working tailback with stellar upside.
