PROS: NFL built frame at 6’1 and 227 pounds. Does an excellent job in space avoiding low tacklers and remaining upright. Has an effective stiff arm that he can use at full speed. Good vision, and is great running behind pullers. Bursts through the hole as soon as it opens behind pulling offensive lineman. Makes good decisions on when to bounce as linebackers collapse. Has NFL level athletic ability.

CONSCould work harder to find dirty yards on inside runs. Remains uncertain in the backfield for too long, doesn’t hit the hole when there isn’t a lot of space. Can occasionally remain upright through the hole, and even though he has the power to break arm tackles, he isn’t running behind his pads. Has occasionally gotten run over in pass protection, needs to attack and be more assertive in that area.
