Scouting Report
Uniquely explosive in the open field, with rare acceleration. Has top-tier field vision: sees holes open then makes lightning-quick cuts to exploit them. Brings game speed that's better than his 40 time. A constant threat for big yardage, and doesn't go down easily on contact. Runs mostly upright from the snap, leading to a lot of contact when he guesses wrong on his cuts. Ball security is an issue and he needs to be more physical in general. Still somewhat inexperienced as a receiver and blocker out of the backfield. Must show more consistency.
Long Range Potential: Star featured tailback.
