Scouting Report
A waterbug type of back who can changes direction impressively at full speed. Elusive, with good hands as a receiving back. Has lower leg strength to break some arm tackles. Able to line up as either a tailback or receiver, and is a very good return man as well. Tiny for the NFL, and durability is a question mark when it comes to a heavy workload when he's the main option on offense. Will make some bad decisions when going for the big play, and has some ball security issues.
Long Range Potential: Aging but still-explosive multi-purpose star ball-carrier.
