PROS: Jackhammer between the tackles who will drop his nose and pound would-be tacklers in the A and B gaps. Consistently falling forward to gain an extra yard or two to finish his runs, should be an equally strong finisher at the NFL level thanks to stature and power. Offers a sturdy frame in pass protection, will have effective challenges of linebackers blitzing late through the interior gaps. Capable receiver out of the backfield, has ran swing, wheel and flat routes and done well to cleanly catch the ball and flip eyes up the field for extra yardage. Shows nice balance in absorbing contact off his body, will pinball off of a poor challenge and continue his pathway up the field with a collected base. Is pretty creative with first defender to arrive, will offer a shimmy or juke to bust an angle, although needed acceleration to get back up to speed is a missing element.

CONS: Feet look heavy at times when having to pivot at the line of scrimmage, resulting in getting tripped up with garbage around his feet. Does not always show the patience as a runner to hold his water and allow for blocks to develop, will out-run blockers in space and hang himself out to dry. Vision between the tackles is questionable in some spurts as well, will predetermine a space to challenge and can have a hard time reacting to push from the offensive line and stonewall himself. Lacks explosiveness as an open field athlete, will get caught from behind in space and isn’t likely to be a game breaking back.
