Scouting Report
Assets: Gets rare burst and acceleration out of the backfield. Follows his blocking well, usually finds a hole, then powers up downfield. A smashmouth downhill runner who likes contact (which also helps him as a blocker) and he uses his good size well to lay the lumber for extra yardage. Plays with excellent intensity. Also has big hands for receptions and ball security.
Flaws: Doesn't always display patience running the ball, and can be too decisive at times (running into tackling). A bit of a one-cut type of runner (although it's an explosive first cut) who gets a bit too upright, takes too much contact, and sometimes over-commits. Not yet a top receiving back, despite solid tools. Needs to stay out of off-field trouble.
Career Potential: Star featured running back.
