Scouting Report
Extremely elusive with the ball in his hands. Displays top-tier field vision, anticipation, and patience running the ball: sees holes open, makes explosive lateral cuts to make defenders miss, then powers upfield. A good receiver. Very tough for his size. Provides value as a return man. Smart, hard-working, and high-character. Undersized and doesn't make up for it with elite deep speed. Ball security was an issue in college, and he must become less fumble-prone. Not an asset as a pass-blocker and must develop more technique in that department to compensate for his small size. Durability is an issue.
Long Range Potential: Big-play tailback and return man with lead back tools (when healthy).
